    I wonder if there is anyone who has tips on how to get my two dogs used to sleeping downstairs (after nearly 2 years of sleeping on my bed).

    Very slowly. Encourage them to sleep on a blanket on your bed, then without washing it; put it in a dog bed by your bed. If they have become accustomed to your mattress, invest in a really comfortable dog bed (memory foam at the least) or it won't be of any interest. By literally inches at a time over a period of weeks, move it away from your bed into the hall and eventually into the place you want them to sleep.
