    Over the last 2 week's every time I vacate a spot be it sofa or bed my pup throws himself into that spot (if he doesn't follow me that is) I often come back to a snoozy , very comfy looking pup and feel guilty when I budge him. There is no aggression, he makes no protest to me moving him, but this is becoming a regular thing. Just wondered what anyone thinks?! Cheers.

    I had a sheltie that did this all her life I think they get comfort from the warm spot

    My Cavalier King Charles does this all the time but the husky doesn't. I think it's because its warm and cosy. If he's showing no aggression and moves ( all be it begrudgingly ) I wouldn't worry about it :)

    Our Cav knows the " Off" command too so if he steals my spot I just tell him off and steal his warmth for a change :)

    Ah that's good to know :) I just feel so guilty moving him when he looks so comfy

    Teach him a game of "Up and Off" with treats, before you get a problem. Puppy needs to learn to move off your space as a learned behaviour.
