If he is sleeping in the bathroom and kitchen my first thought would be that the floors are usually cooler. Or he may be seeking places that are quiet.

I agree with Sabi but if this is a sudden thing have you had your vet check for thyroid problems or another health issue that may be causing the change. He could have an overactive thyroid which is making him feel too warm rather than an under active which would make him tired,sensitive to cold,gain weight (not always) and behave differently as well. Just a suggestion.

I agree with both M&K and Sabi. Steel hasn't had any health issues (thank Dog), but one of our cats died this year, and any time that he got sick, he would always stay on the bathroom floor, because it was cooler and he wanted to be alone.

Not saying that your dog is sick, but you might want to look into it.

Also, your dog could be having a reaction to the Comfortis. It happens with any medication. Steel is on that, but she hasn't had any adverse reactions to it at all.
