4mth old- Is it Alright to Sleep on my Bed?
I was wondering, is it alright for my 4 months old puppy to sleep in my bed sometimes all night and some other nights in his crate? Or should I be consistent with the crate? I don't mind him sleeping on my bed but when my boyf comes over there is just no room for the three of us! And I am still crating him during the day, will allowing him to sleep with me at night make crating during the day worse? Any advice? Thanks!

My 4 month old is just too little to sleep on the bed at night. She could easily fall off or jump and get hurt.
I put her in her crate at night, on my bed, next to my head.
During the day I have a pen with room for her to move about and play if she wants.

All three of my Yorkies from the time they came home as babies were in my bed. Never rolled over on them, helped with bonding. I am lucky to be home all day, so crating is not a issue, I admit it is hard for me to think about my little Yorkies in crate all day, however I must respect your choice. Might consider Bigger bed so there is room for everone. My senior 3lb. is 14 1/2 and never a problem. They are more like babies wanting to be with you! last suggestion. There are soft sided little houses with mesh , and they can see out screen, has faux sheepskin pad you can remove to clean, and you can zip up at night. I put my 9week old in his little house on my bed. He loves it. As he got a little older, I let him choose . You can also take it with you as carrier,etc. If intrested, I can tell you where to buy one. Good Luck with sleeping solutions

Murfee has slept in bed with us since the night we got him when he was 8 weeks old. He is 4 now. I get lonely when he decides to sleep in his napsak instead of the bed.

Hello and welcome to YT!
Everyone's situation is different and I'm sure you will get many points of view . Lucy has slept with Thomas and me since day one with no problems and Lucy is 3.5 lbs. at 1 year. Believe me, she lets us know if we get too close to her in the middle of the night.
I would say consistency is best though so in my opinion I would have her one or the other, not switching back and forth. JMO.

Rest in Peace my Sweet Buster

I have 5 in my bed but I am a light sleeper and they all knwo where to sleep. When I got Roxie she was 20 weeks old and a little under 3 lbs. The first night I kept her in a crate next to my bed and she was ok for a few hours and then wanted out. The next day she learned how to use the ramp next to my bed so let her sleep with me and she did fine, I get up during the night for my older pom, so I just have Roxie go potty then and back to bed. I think it may be hard to switch back and forth betwen crate and bed, bt you can try and see.
