    Do your pets sleep with you and don't leave enough room?  Do they snuggle or sleep at your feet ?

    If they sleep with you do they sometimes seem to take up the whole bed or do they sleep at the foot of the bed and not bother you? Do you think them sleeping with you is a health hazard or do you not really care?

    My wife and I have several pairs of feline eyes staring at us from several parts of our bed, almost ALWAYS! No , I have never worried about this being a health hazard.

    My fiance and I allow our dog to sleep with us.  He's on the smaller size, around 20 lbs.  Once in awhile he'll be a bed hog but if he's taking up too much space I usually just pick him up and move him.  Luckily normally he snuggles right up next to me and doesn't take up much bed space.  It comforts me to have him next to me at night.

    I'm not worried about the health hazards because I keep my dog healthy and clean.  Most of the hazards that I've heard people talk about come from not keeping your dog clean, well groomed, and healthy.

    That's an entertaining question. I like sharing my bed with the dogs because it's comforting and warm in winter and I find them very obliging about being shoved about to make room. My German shepherd cross and terrier both like to snuggle under the duvet. The labrador curls up wherever he can fit.  I don't think it's too much of a health hazard.

    Yes they do.  My wife insists.

    The dogs snuggle on her side at her feet.  The cats fall asleep on my face.

    I don't think they are a health hazard.

    Right now we're only allowed one pet, and she's an 18lb dog. She does sleep with us, but never really takes up too much room. My husband and I snuggle very close already, and she knows that she'll be told to get off the bed if she gets too pushy for space tongue. She usually sleeps in-between our feet, though when my husband is gone she'll sleep under the blankets curled up against my back. I'm not concerned about this being a health hazard -- I've hardly spent a night in my life without at least one critter in the bed, and throughout my childhood I frequently snuck out to sleep in the doghouse amidst several hounds.

    I don't think it's a health hazard, but if you're worried about it you can do what my husband and I do.  Instead of having our German Shepherd sleep in the bed with us we got him his own dog bed which we place right next to our bed, that way he sleeps with us, but not actually in the bed.  He loves it, and if he wants our attention in the morning when he wakes up he's not shy about putting his front paws up on the bed and sliding his head under one of our hands to encourage petting.
