5. Lock Them Out of Your Room at Night
If you don’t want your dog to sleep in the bed because it’s hard for your to sleep or they take up a lot of room or they are an outdoor dog that tracks in dirt, that’s ok. But at least try to let them sleep in the same room as you. You can fashion a nice bed for them near yours that they will get convertible sleeping in. Believe it or not, dogs have feelings. They also are creatures of habit and like a comfortable routine. They will often ask to be let upstairs when they are tired and put themselves to bed.
