How common is it to sleep with your dog?
Over 60% of American households have pets, based on the latest numbers from the CDC. Of these, roughly half share their bedroom with their pet.
Where do our pets sleep? An American Kennel Club survey reports that 45% of dog owners let their dog sleep in their bed, while 20% crate their dog, and 17% use a dog bed.
Americans in particular love sleeping with their dogs. In 2015, the online home design platform Houzz surveyed 10,000 pet owners around the world in 11 countries to track pet co-sleeping trends. Americans reported pet co-sleeping arrangements more than any other country, with 53% of American pet owners sleeping with their cats (compared to 30% in France and Germany at the other end of the spectrum), and 41% of American dog owners sharing the bed (compared to only 14% in Spain).
