WHO is better at keeping you warm on frosty nights (literally). Your significant other or a nice, WARM dog???

WHO is better at keeping you warm on frosty nights (literally). Your significant other or a nice, WARM dog???

I dearly love my hubby. He rocks my world. He can also WARM me up very well.....but once the fun is done and the sleeping starts, it is a NO CONTEST situation. Snuggle as he might, HE ain't keeping me nearly as warm on a COLD night as that FUZZY radiator of a pup that we have. Thankfully she sleeps BETWEEN us, so we can SHARE the WARMTH!!!

How about you? Anyone else have a four footed bed warmer that wins out over that two footed lover in the RADIATOR category??

I have a mini Australian Shepard so he's too little to keep me warm. I use a heated blanket instead.

Well my dog doesn't give me orgasms, so that's kind of no competition.

Also, the dog isn't allowed on furniture so I guess I can't really be qualified to know if he'd make a nice radiator. The cat sleeps on the bed when she chooses to, but it's more like "I decided to randomly curl up on the edge of your shoulder as you're sleeping on your side," so she's not optimally placed to keep me warm---and she'll also waltz off whenever she pleases.

So, partner's better than pets, in my realm

In terms of snuggles, kittens and puppies always win out. Always.

I don't have a partner, so my two little dogs sometimes get to cuddle with me! It's so fun to have one on either side when I'm sleeping on my back. Usually, though, I sleep on my side. Invariably, Milo will curl up behind the bend in my knees and Ruby will curl up against my stomach. It's so cute and cozy!

Both my boyfriend and my Owner are total personal space heaters, so they win over my tiny (and only sometimes cuddly) cat.

My dog. I absolutely cannot sleep next to another person- but a dog generally tends to lay with their back against you, so you can just have them touching your side or be the 'big spoon'- with people it is too much moving around, their arms in the way, etc

We use a Pack Hierarchy Training System with our dogs. We eat before they do (and we often pick up their bowls and pretend to eat out of them, as well as add food to the bowls while they eat and I sometimes will chew something before offering it to them. It makes sense; the food comes FROM the Alpha Pair, as does everything else.) They are not allowed on furniture and they are crated at night. (Unless I'm home alone and scared, but then they are still penned downstairs.)

So, dogs are not allowed in our bedroom. That's for the Alpha Pair only. We have very very well behaved dogs.

It works for us.

I have a chihuahua, who after snuggling under blankets for hours each day, can be very warm, but she's also very small. Before my sweetie moved in with me and she was still allowed in my bed, she was a welcome snuggle buddy and cold nights. However, my bf puts out some damn heat. Sometimes I can't even cuddle with him because I get too hot and he gets all sad lol.

I love to sleep on my husband's back in the winter. He is warm without being nuclear. However, our dog Dante has decided that his spot is right in between us, so I can't always do that. As long as Dante is positioned right, he is fun to snuggle against. However, when he isn't, he pushes hard against my back and ends up pinning down half my blankets, so I freeze to death. Gabrielle will also sometimes sleep against my legs, which is the BEST.

I don't let our dog on our bed. She tries to "outrank" me and compete for my husband (crazy as it sounds)...so I have to show her who's boss. No bed for her! She is only a year old.

My husband is a furnace year round and I like things cold...so if I sleep next to him - I keep one foot sticking out from under the blanket.

Our bedroom bunny usually sleeps beside my back if I'm snuggled next to my husband -otherwise he'll sleep by my side or my husband's side. He doesn't like to sleep between us though.

That's really interesting! I'm not nearly that strict about everything, but I do some similar things with my dogs They're very good. I have a new pup, so she's still learning the rules, but..they're both very respectful. I wouldn't have it any other way! Kudos to you.

A well behaved dog is so much more enjoyable than an unruly one!

Our dog is trained similar. She eats after us and sits by her bowl while we eat patiently waiting. I'm a firm believer in crate training. Our girl has her own bed in our bathroom and that's where she sleeps. Even if I wanted her in our room I couldn't stand her snoring! So, hubby keeps me warm when we are home together.

Thank you. My husband and I have both Labs and Malamutes. Malamutes are extremely powerful dogs and some can pull over 2,000 lbs on a sled on dry concrete! They could easily overpower even a large strong human like my husband so we had to learn gentle and kind, yet very firm discipline techniques when we had our first Malamute. The Lab is a pretty strong animal as well. (But, not nearly as strong as the Malamute, which is a basically a barely domesticated wolf. )

I agree that well behaved pups are a joy to have as companions and for protection. We love them very much.

What kind of pup do you have? It sounds like she has a good home with you and your husband.

Our dogs' "bedroom" is downstairs in our once-breakfast room/back porch (it's enclosed and heated.) They love it there, but they are far enough away so I don't hear snoring () but close enough that if someone barks or growls we'll hear and investigate, as well as take the dog out of the crate so they can let us know what the problem is. With the strong wind we've been having the last 2 days, the poor Lab is barking more than she is used to, because the door keeps rattling. I feel bad for her, because she feels she has to protect us, then she looks so embarrassed when there is nothing there.

I grew up with labs They're my favorite (although I love aaaaalll doggies, regardless of breed). I live in a studio apartment, so I have two small dogs now, which...on a good day, add up to about half of a big dog hahaha!

my bf radiates ridiculous amounts of heat. he rolled over & spooned me one night when i was sleeping over, & i almost felt like i was being burned for a very brief second, lol. so if i'm ever cold, i just snuggle up to him till i get too hot from being close to him for too long. then i just move over to my side of the bed. but if either 1 of us had dogs, they wouldn't be allowed on the bed. i don't like having dogs on the bed.

Currently, my dog keeps me pretty dang warm all night long, sometimes too hot. He's not that big, 30 pounds or so, and a mini Australian shepherd.

When I move in with my significant other, it'll be just him, as my dog won't be sleeping with us (his rules).

I am always cold. Hubby doesn't warm me up sufficiently; maybe I need a dog.

Husband. Our three cats aren't allowed to sleep with us only because the husband moves around too much for it to be safe for them.
