Miniature Pinschers like to sleep in their owners bed. If you let the dog sleep in your bed once, you instantly have a new sleeping pal for life. What you will need to do if you don’t want the Min Pin to sleep in your bed, is to keep your bedroom door closed from the day you get the dog. The dog might scratch on your door repeatedly if it thinks it is allowed into your bedroom and in your bed.
What are the drawbacks about letting the Miniature Pinscher sleep in your bed? Well, for one thing, you get short, black hair all over your sheets. This breed doesn’t shed enormously, but if the dog sleeps with you every night, changing the sheets every few days will be necessary.
Another thing is that it can affect the “pack structure” and lead to bad behavior. Humans are the pack leaders, and a dog must follow what the leader says. If the dog think it’s the boss, there will be problems, so make it clear for the dog what the rules are.
Personally, I don’t like the Miniature Pinscher sleeping in my bed, because he stretches out during the night, and those little feet all over my feet and legs wake me up! A snoring dog in your bed can also be annoying.
If you want a warm, hairy little companion in your bed to keep you warm, you might enjoy to have the Miniature Pinscher in your bed. Just be aware of the drawbacks.
