Default If your Yorkie sleeps in your bed..do worry about falling?

Just wondering after reading the other thread about beds If your Yorkie sleeps with you , do you worry he/she might fall off and get hurt? Our bed is up very high off of the ground so if Louie fell out he wouldn't make it. Do you use steps for them to get up or down. Lastly, do they bother you at night and keep you from sleeping?

I worried about my boys jumping and doing damage to their legs, so I put my mattress on the floor.

My yorkies are 6 and 11 lbs. Jewels the 6 lb one cant get up on the bed by herself so we have an otomon by it for her. Usually they sleep unless they hear A loud noise then they may bark

If your bed is that high off the floor...I would definitely get stairs or steps so he can get off your bed that way. My bed is high off the floor too...my babies have never fallen off while they were sleeping...but yorkies are fearless and will jump...mine were taught not to jump and wait on me to let them down....until I got stairs for them to use. It's much safer...because inevitably they will try to jump!

And they all have slept with me since they came home... when they were babies...I would wake up to any movement..mostly because I worried they had to go potty...so I would keep a pad nearby to use in emergencies...but they don't keep me awake or up at all...unless they move and aren't snuggling to me....I'll wake up and scoot em back next to me! hehe

My bed too is very high up off the floor. We have stairs, that are still too short to reach the top of the bed. Bella has to jump pretty high to get up. Shes a stinker and always jumps down, won't wait for me or use the stairs. Jett is too small, but sleeps with us all the time. I do worry about them falling off, Bella did once as a baby, but only once. She was thankfully fine, shortly there after she learned how to jump off the bed. ( I think I am going to TRY to teach Jett to wait for me to put him down, he does NOT like the edge of the bed and stays close to the center. Thankfully!!!

I've never worried about it... but Jackson is a bigger guy. He's 16lbs and jumps on/off furniture with ease. Lol. But a little one might be more worrisome to me.

Our bed is really high too but Zhoie has slept with us from 5 mos. She doesn't jump off anything, she simply waits to be picked up and put down, lol. We don't have stairs, I'm sure she wouldn't use them...she would just stand and wait.
I don't worry about her in bed, she's a real snuggler and will sleep in as long as I do.

I have 4 that sleep with me. They have all been sleeping with me from the day I brought them home as pups. I have always had stairs and for some lucky reason they used these stairs from the day I brought them home. The youngest Wyatt, was taught by the breeder to climb up and down stairs as a prerequisite for bringing him home. For the most part they all have their special spot to sleep and if for some reason they get "discombobulated" we do not sleep well. There are times when I am sorry I let them all on my bed but we, most nights sleep well. It took a while for them to get use to "me" getting up during the night to use the bathroom but they all now hold their spots and usually don't even wake up.

I usually kept them in a playpen in my bedroom at night until they were potty trained and then let them sleep on the bed. I have a ramp that I train them from day one to use to get up and down.

Its good to hear that they are snuggle bugs! I can't wait for Louie to be potty trained then able to come snuggle at night. He is a little stinker right now chewing and excitable but I expect that will fade as he gets older. I'll have to get some stairs for him I suppose. Right now he is fearless and jumped off of the couch before I could get to him. It didn't even phase him one bit but scared his mommy quite a bit.

My bed is very high sleigh bed and I'm always worried ZoE's gonna go on an adventure in the middle of the night. But she'll cry & cry if she's not with me, so having her sleep with me is the only way I get any sleep. She's done great so far. She wakes me up once in the middle of the night to go pee and then goes right back to snuggling until morning.

Callie dosent sleep in my bed with me she sleeps in a soft doggie house a foot from me because I am terrified of rolling over on to her or hurting her because I move a lot or used to so I feel it is safer for her to have her bed and for me to have mine. But if she is sick or not feeling good I normaly dont sleep good so I put her in the bed with me so I can know how shes doing.

GREAT idea!!! My room and my new house is real small & I wasn't sure I'd have the space for enough steps to reach my bed...but that would solve the problem. Thanks

Our bed is a very high sleigh bed and Zoe is a very bitty little one. When I unmake the bed at night I build a "ramp" for her that she goes up and down--consists of our comforter/spread and different pillows all stacked up stair-step fashion. She does great with it. And nothing beats that sweet little curled-up puppy snuggling!
