Mike does not like it, but I let Harley snuggle with me after he leaves for work. Do you let your pet sleep with you?

Absolutely! What better time to snuggle with my pet than when I'm already snuggled in my bed? During the day I'm usually either up and moving or my lap is full of a project. But when I'm in bed there's plenty of room and time for my cat to get close. It does mean I need to clean the bedding a little more often, but it's well worth the extra effort.

I don't let my dog to sleep on my bed.
If i let him, that means i'm letting him to be the leader of the pack=)

Both of our dogs sleep in bed with us. Granted it gets a little crowded sometimes. But for the most part its great!

Its a personal choice... I think its fine, so long as the dog is invited up on furniture first. We had a strict "no furniture" policy with Jim the first year to train him, but we have been having family snuggle time on the bed sometimes now. He always gets right down when hes told and doesn't try to get back up... so I am pleased with how we did it!

Blue sleeps in bed with us ~ but the other dogs all sleep in their crates. Of the cats, Patch and Murphy snuggle in between our pillows. The biggest issue sometimes is that everyone insists on being closest to us.

My doxie Annie actually sleeps under the covers by my legs - she will actually dig by my shoulder for me to lift the blanket to go under.

The dog sleeps IN the bed under the covers. The cat sleeps on top of the covers if he can sneak by without the dog knowing.

Of my 10 cats and 2 dogs, it's their preference whether they sleep on the bed or not. Porsche will sleep on the bed until she gets warm. Testarossa, dachshund recently rescued from a puppy mill, sleeps glued to me with her nose buried in my hair. More of my animals sleep on the bed during winter which cuts down on the heating bill.

Yes, I let my two Border Collies sleep on the bed with me, sometimes I have to push Max to the other side of the bed as sometime is tries to hog my side. I let Mia sleep with me as she is a new rescue and is a good bonding experience for her as she is still so scared, she just curls up in a little ball right next to me.
