Now let’s take a look at the topic at hand…

Are Two Dogs Sleeping Together Ok for my Puppies?

Yes, as a general rule, it is actually healthier for your dogs to sleep in the same bed, assuming they enjoy doing so.

There are a few exceptions to the rule, where it might not bed the best idea, such as:

  1. If one of your dogs is sick or disabled.
  2. If one dog is much older than the other.
  3. If your dogs occasionally fight or show aggression to each other.
  4. If one dog is much, much bigger than the other.

But even if one or more of these factors is the case.

It is still possible that your dogs will be fine in one large dog bed. You just need to be a bit more careful about it.

Can Two Dogs Sleep In One Crate?

Yes, it is totally fine for most dogs to sleep two in one crate. In fact, it is probably much better for them.

There are some exceptions, the same as for beds, that we listed above, but apart from that, your dogs should be fine sleeping in the same crate.

How Do I Make My Two Dogs Sleep Together In The Same Bed?

If your dogs currently sleep separately and you would like them to sleep together, there isn’t a huge amount you can do about it.

But there are a few little tricks that might help:

  • Buy a nice big comfy double dog bed for two dogs.
  • Feed them both treats and give them pets on the bed at the same time.
  • Store their favorite toys and blankets on there when they are not using them.
  • Try leaving them in a room with no other bed and just see what happens.
  • Let nature take its course. Just be patient, don’t give up, and that’s the best you can do.
