Depending on how the animal sees the pack leader of the house, dogs who sleep at the foot of the bed generally know their place in the pack.We will go over the main reason why dogs sleep at the foot of the bed.
Dog breeds can be nervous and/or clingy and a spot at the foot of the bed with you in it can bring them some relief. Some examples of these dog breeds who feel protected by sleeping at the foot of the bed are:– Hungarian Vizsla– Maltese– Pug– Bichon Frise– Cocker Spaniel
These dogs sleep at the foot of the bed on the floor to say, “You’re the boss. I’m just following your lead.” If they’ve been trained not to be on the bed and instead have their bedding on the floor, they’re just happy to be near you.
