Got my dog two years ago when I broke up with my last boyfriend. Tried making him sleep in his own bed but he always ended up in my bed. Got use to him being there. Now dating a man who im thinking about being with, but dont kboe how im going to get the dog to stay out of the bed when we're in there together. Any suggestions?

Teach the "off" command, and crate train him. Seriously. He won't like it at first, but if you stand firm, AND make his crate a good place to be, he'll adjust.
