I’ve been having an ongoing debate with a friend of mine about whether your dog(s) should be allowed in your bed. They are dirty, smelly and if they shed, can leave hair all over your bedding. My friend is adamant about no dogs in bed, as in he has absolutely zero tolerance. To that I say, WHATEVER MAN. Dolly has been cuddling in bed with me since she stopped crate training at 1 year (she’s 5 now). She also doesn’t shed, so I’m usually like hey girl, wanna get under the covers too? Just kidding, but not really. I wake up with a huge smile every morning to find her snuggled in close to me, most often in hilarious positions–like belly up in the air, or big spooning me. I wouldn’t have it any other way. To me, cuddling in bed is one of the best benefits of having a pet!

She knows the bed is not off limits, so I find her there a lot. Chewing on her bone, stealing my sneakers and removing the inserts, or her favorite–wiping her face on my white duvet after her dinner. I feed her home-cooked hamburger with canned pumpkin and Dinovite supplements (which I swear by if your dog has any allergies, it has helped her in so many ways). She goes nuts for the cooked meat (I make it once a month and freeze it). Plus now I call her the Hamburglar, she kind of looks like him, right? But I digress. My point is, she loves to rub that darn little face into my clean white bedspread after she feasts. Side to side, up and down, my duvet cover is her dang napkin. It’s a good thing she’s so cute….

But I don’t want you to worry, or be grossed out. It’s all good! It’s OK! Because I’ve discovered the premium pet cleaning products: Skout’s Honor. I love their Stain & Odor Remover. It’s a green (non-toxic, plant-derived, earth-friendly, biodegradable, cruelty-free and safe to use around your pets, family and home!!!), powerful, and works quickly to spot clean her dinner marks in between my weekly washings. (Skout’s Honor works on bigger stains than dinner marks too, if your furbaby is not yet housebroken, this may be your dream product.)

I found Skout’s Honor at my local PetSmart. They have an entire range of products, pictured above are my two favorites. Since Dolly is frequently in the car with me (or her “Wind Machine” as I like to call it), I love to spray the Odor Eliminator on my car mats to keep things smelling fresh. No pets? No problem, their products work great for kids too.

The best part: for every product sold, Skout’s Honor donate a day’s worth of food to a shelter animal. Incredible products and company all around.

Go get you some today!

So what do you think, do you allow your dog in bed with you?

    Hi Sarah,

    I bought some shells from your Etsy site and took at look at this site, saw your dog in bed article. Just wanted to chime in. We had two dogs who loved to get on our bed. One was a 90 lb. yellow lab who passed away last year. The other is a 105 lb. great Pyrenees mix who is still with us, but cannot get on the bed anymore due to old age. In fact she can barely walk. I’ll make this short: playing, feeding treats and sleeping with them on the bed were some of the most joyful times my wife and I ever had. When they got too old to jump up, and wouldn’t climb up steps, and were too heavy for us to lift up, the dog bed we also slept on was a much sadder place. They only live for so long and are healthy or fit enough for even less time, so make the most of it every moment there is.

    Now we have a 3 month old golden retriever pup and as soon as he has better manners and won’t shred the pillows and bedding with his razor puppy teeth, he’ll be on the bed also!

    Hi Shandor, thanks for sharing your sentiments! I couldn’t agree with you more. My baby is 5 and I hold her so close to my heart everyday–both emotionally and physically! Every night in bed before I turn the lights out, I make sure to tell her how much I love her (because I know she understands all the words coming out of my mouth!) and kiss her face and rub her belly before we drift off to sleep. The best little evening ritual. My heart is so full because of this animal! I’m glad you agree. 🙂
