Why do dogs like to sleep in their owner’s bed?

Leigh Siegfried is an experienced dog trainer based in Philadelphia. The award-winning owner of the dog training organization Opportunity Barks has worked with more than 10,000 dogs and their owners while making appearances as a speaker at conferences hosted by the Humane Society of the United States. She offered News week a general analysis of why dogs love to sleep in their owner’s bed.

“Any animal that likes to bond, but also simply has an innate need for comfort through touch and shared warmth, is an animal, probably a dog. It is a very likely candidate for wanting to be near people, to sleep near people or lie down near people.”, Siegfried said News week.

“It’s not so much their liking for their owner’s bed as the animal really enjoying and enjoying people, being petted and handled by people. A lot of it depends on the temperament and needs of each dog , and whether the dog has always been near people. This will determine whether they can choose to sleep in the same bed as their owner or not,” she said.
