Lately when we put our pup in our bed at night as usual she starts shaking. We’ll put her on the floor thinking maybe she needs to use her bathroom pad but later we’ll find her sleeping in the living room. She has always slept with us and has insisted on it since she was a puppy. I don’t understand what could be bothering her. Has anyone experienced this?

I kept waking up to my boy sleeping in the spare bedroom.  At first i was really confused and a little worried.  He has always slept in my bedroom to be near me and his "big sister" - even if he was under the bed.   I thought maybe he wasn't feeling well, or maybe, because my mom had slept in the spare bedroom, he was enjoying whatever scent she left behind....

But no, i finally woke up at the moment he left and realized it was the alarm clock.  He doesn't like loud noises and as soon as my alarms start (i've got i think 7 different times set, plus at least one snooze each (not a morning person!)) he would leave.

Do you watch TV while falling asleep?  Maybe the noise bothers her.  Or maybe it's too warm?   Any other odd/new behavior?

Just a thought but have you changed anything as @TheOneWithTheThumbs mentions a clock or maybe your bedding or even just your laundry soap  really small things can drive dogs mad.

Murphy loves my son in law but recently when he came over Murphy refused to go near him.. Turned out even though he had been home and showered he was still carrying the scent of the place he had been working, a barn full of bats that had a snake problem.. The smell of the bats or snakes obviously bothered Murphy.

So if there is nothing physically wrong then it could be a smell or feeling thats changed.

I think we figured it out. And now that I’m typing it “out loud”, it seems obvious. A couple of weeks ago, during the night Cocoa accidentally fell between the mattress and the footboard. We immediately rescued her but ever since then she seemed afraid when we put her on the bed. A Vet suggested putting the mattress on the floor. That worked. She slept like a log.

Do u have any doggy stairs to help her climb up and down to the bed? That can be helpful too 😊. Especially for the little pups. I got some on Etsy that are carpeted and I even climb them to pretend I have an “upstairs “ in my 1bedroom apt! 😜. My big and little dog use them, for practical purposes,  not bad jokes!

She had stairs for most of her life but refused to use them about a year ago. Now she just tells us when to pick her up or put her down. Lol
