Where does your Vizsla Sleep?

Debating about forcing the pups to sleep in Kennels so I can get more sleep but curious to see where others have their pups sleep.

Our dogs primarily spend the nights in their own Dog Crate. I think of the Kennel as a fenced enclosure so maybe we're talking the same thing but different terminology.
We do a rotation of a dog spending the night with us in bed, depending on which dog and how badly we need the sleep, or as is currently the case - how cold it is.

Knowledge and tools all help in training your dog, but have no worth whatsoever if one does not get up and actually go train.

Re: Where does your Vizsla Sleep?

I love sleeping with my 2 current V's Titan and Brandy - though Titan is getting bigger and bigger and hubby and I are running out of room on the queen - good excuse to get a king though!! Hunter, Wager and Brandy all used to pile in my double and sleep just fine years ago, so warm and cozy and cuddly. My dogs spend all day during work hours in a kennel, there is no way they deserve to spend all night in one, or alone on the floor in a dog bed, JMO.

Lyra has always slept in a create in our bedroom. I love our dog but I want my own space at night. Bad enough having to share with the wife

Ruby sleeps on her dog mat in our bedroom now, she used to sleep downstairs in the kitchen on her bed.

Hey Ken, I am intrigued as to why you rotate bed privileges amongst your dogs? Is it just a space issue with you having so many? Is there a reason why you let them in bed on rotation?

I'm not 2nd guessing you at all Ken. As you know mine sleep with me. I have reasons why I do this apart from the wonderful warm feeling it gives me as I fall asleep. So just wanted to hear your thoughts.

It's just unusual to hear of a breeder/trainer who does this. All the ones I know have them in a kennel or dog yard of sorts.

Re: Where does your Vizsla Sleep?

Until about 10 months ago they slept in their kennels n the front room.
Now they sleep upstairs in a spare room we use for the computer and the laundry when we are home, and the kennels when we are gone.

I worked out of state last spring in Wisconsin for a month and Mrs. Gunnr kept the girlz' with her at nite. It just kinda progressed from there.
So far. So Good.

You'll never beat a lesson into a dog, you just beat desire out.

Re: Where does your Vizsla Sleep?

Ziva has always slept with us.... we now have a king size bed thank goodness since Izzy is here now.... At the moment my husband hasn't relocated here to Ohio due to work in Fla.. he is flying back and forth ... so the dogs are very comforting to me at night .... Ziva is like my own personal heating pad!

Re: Where does your Vizsla Sleep?

H has a giant, open crate he sleeps in in the kitchen. It's the ugliest thing in the world..like a giant grey cat basket. Husband wanted to get rid of it but he's loved it ever since he was 8 weeks old

In the morning before we get up we let him up in our bed for an hour. He will wait till we lift the covers up then jump in.

Also..my guilty secret.. I sometimes have him in bed with ,e when husband on night shifts. He's like a warm furry hit water bottle

Re: Where does your Vizsla Sleep?

We crate him for the night with a blanket on top covering 75% of the crate. We have two cats that roam freely and we don't want him to react to their movements at night and wake up everyone in and around the apartment. We'll be moving soon out of the apartment (therefore will have more space) however we plan on keeping him in his crate for sleep.
