If your dog is refusing to sleep with you, it could be for a number of reasons. Perhaps they are not feeling well or there’s some other underlying medical issue that needs treatment. You may need to change their diet too as this can sometimes make them restless and unable to sleep soundly at night. All in all, the best uncomfortable being near anyone during bedtime is get him checked out by a vet, just in case something more serious has developed like an infection or anxiety disorder. Once everything checks out okay then we recommend trying these steps:
-Keep his crate next to the bed so he’ll feel safe when sleeping on his own
-Give him lots of space to sleep on his own, if he’s a little too close to you
-Put the TV or music on in your room so that it will be loud enough for him but not bother him.
-Pet and cuddle with him before bedtime rather than right when trying to put them down.-Give small treats often during the day (so they don’t feel anxious about eating) -Make sure there are no other pets around who might cause noise at night like barking dogs or yelling cats. The last thing you want is for your dog to get startled and be unable to fall asleep because of something else going on nearby.
This could also lead into how we can help our animals have less anxiety overall which would allow them more restful sleep.
-Do not force your dog to sleep in the bed with you. If he needs more space or feels too cramped, let him sleep on his own and then go back over every night until it becomes a habit. The same way we might need different furniture for our room throughout life (like going from single to married), so does animals. They grow up and may want their independence as well! As long as they are getting at least one hour of quality restful time where they feel safe and secure, that’s what counts most when trying to train them for better sleeping habits.
A lot of this article is about how we can help create an environment that will be calming enough for dogs who have been traumatized by loud noises.
-Place a bed in a spot where the dog feels safe and secure. Dogs who are frightened of noises may want to sleep with their owners for safety reasons, so placing them near the wall or on different levels will make it harder for them to hear what’s going on outside. Placing any new sleeping place (whether they be beds or couches) next to an existing one can also help create familiarity when trying out something new! I’ve included some pictures below that show examples of how this might look–the black line is representing the original bed, while each arrow indicates another step closer. As you get closer, he’ll feel more comfortable because there is less space between him and his other regular resting places.
You can also try using a pet bed with an elevated back, which will give him the opportunity to relax and sleep while being partially hidden from view.
Dogs who like their privacy may not be as comfortable in sleeping spaces where they’re easier for others to see them–whether it’s human or animal companions. If you have other pets that are more likely to jump on your pup when he sleeps, make sure his bed is at least three feet off the ground; this way there won’t be any opportunities for them to disturb his slumber!
Some breeds of dogs can take longer than others getting used to new places-especially if they were previously doing something else where they felt safe and secure (sleeping outside). With some patience, he will get used to the new environment and start sleeping in his bed.
Create a safe place for your dog to sleep where there are no distractions that might interfere with his rest. This could be as simple as putting an old towel on the floor next to your bed; this way, if he gets up in the night looking for company or excitement, you’ll know right away! You can also use baby gates or pet doors so that dogs who need their independence during slumber can have it without disturbing family members.
Try using a crate when introducing a new dog into household- especially one’s that were previously underworked by breed standards (such as herding breeds) or those rescued from shelters/pounds. Putting them in a crate at night will associate the crate with a time of rest and security so that they are more likely to sleep there when left on their own.
If your dog is experiencing anxiety around sleeping, try using natural remedies like lavender or chamomile essential oils (applied topically) in order to help them relax enough for slumber. You can also use calming products such as Rescue Remedy spray- which may be applied both orally and topically-or a Thundershirt, which applies gentle constant pressure in all directions via swaddling. Finally, you might want to consider an herbal supplement called Osteo Calm Plus; it’s made by Virbac Animal Health specifically for dogs’ joint pain relief and has been clinically proven to reduce anxiety in animals.
In summary, there are many ways that you can help your dog get comfortable enough for a good night’s sleep! Be sure to return the favor and make them as happy and safe as possible when they’re with you-and use these tips when they’re not around. You’ll both be sleeping better soon!
