Even though you have a million and one dog beds online. Many fashionable and really fun built, dogs still end up sharing bed with their master. This practice of sleeping with your dog in bed can have good and even negative impacts on yourself and your dog too.
What? How can sleeping with a dog in bed have negative reactions? Well let's see.
Dog Becomes Too Attached
Even though you as a dog owner loves your pet and want to show the dog love at every chance you get. Too much love may not be a good thing either. You want to ensure that your dog has his/her own space and can feel independent at nights or even day while sleeping. If your dog becomes attached to sleeping in bed with you, it may become difficult to make changes at a later time. Changes such as having a baby and you may not want your dog in bed with your baby.
Get Bitten by Fleas
Dogs are treated for tick and fleas, but what if for some reason you forgot to treat your dog and the dog manages to get flea then sleeps in bed with you and you end up getting bitten or worse a child ends up getting bitten. Tick bite is never a healthy situation.
Bed smells like Dog
Yes, we cuddle them, love them, play with them and everything else, but if you have high shedding dog, you may have to think more than once about sleeping in bed with that dog. Dog dander and shedding will cause you sheets to transform from Downy to doggy.
Sleeping in bed with you dog may allow you to create even a tighter bond with your canine pal. It also allows you reassurance that your dog is OK while sleeping.
