well, Z will get down if I play "sheet snake"- she hates it  :laugh4:

scratch under the sheets near them with your fingers- just enough to make a noise and the quickly grab their leg thru the covers

Off like a rocket  :devilish:

Doesn't bother Precious at all.  I do it to her all the time.  She just keeps on snoring away. :mad:

I just started with telling them to go to bed.  When they got on THEIR beds, I gave them a treat.  If they tried to come up into my bed, I told them "No, off".  It took a few weeks to really sink into their hard heads, but they have nice cushy beds and blankets on the floor now.  Zoe still sneaks up sometimes at night.  I don't know how she does it without waking either of us!

Same here, which is why I was able to make them get off the first few nights when they tried to sneak up.  If I were a heavier sleeper I'm not sure how it would have worked.

Beas was pretty good last night because he only tried to jump on the bed at the begining of the night and once in the middle of the night.  Hopefully tonight he will stay down the whole night.

I like a snuggle as much as anyone but between allergies and sore backs from the akward sleeping positions I am in...I am exhausted.

Plus, Bob and I are planning on having kids in the near future and I wanted to transition the pups out of the bed before then.

Aaron is a deep sleeper and I'm one of those people who wakes up, but only enough to know I'm awake, not enough to recognize that there is something I should do (kick the dog off the bed, etc)... Dash knows this well.  Even the nights we've been awake long enough to persist through his first "sneak" attempt, we've always ended up waking up with him back between us!  ::)  Clever little dashole.

:wall: Bob is untraining Beas and Peas.  I was able to get them to sleep on their beds for a few nights but the past few nights we've had the windows open at night so Peanut will jump into bed (even though there are blankets on their beds) and snuggle Bob.  When I tell her to get off she doesn't listen and Bob is like "Just let her stay" at which point Beas also gets into the bed :wall: I think I am going to make Bob start sleeping on the floor wtih the dogs if he wants to snuggle them so badly

Oh too funny! I am sorry I know it is serious, but it brings back such memories :roflol:  Walker has not tried to sleep with us, heck he doesn't even try to get on the couch, and that is really surprising!  He has his crate, his bed in the living room and he has a rug on the floor beside my side of the bed.  The best part is my bed sits up really HIGH so he can't jump up on it, at least he dosn't know he can yet! 
Theresa, did you get it resolved?  If not I am thinking you could make your DH an offer he can't refuse, the dogs in bed and no lovin or dogs out of bed and lots of lovin :action-smiley-031:

Sounds like Bob is the one that needs some training!   :laugh4:
