" Get in your bed "

How many times have you heard someone say this to their dog?
Do you agree with this command?

I often hear people tell their dogs to " get in their beds " and often as a punishment or if the dog is doing something they dont want them to do. Do you say this to your dog? Do you agree with it? Why?
I have not yet told Georgie to " get in his bed " as I see his bed as nice, peaceful place for Georgie to be rather than somewhere he goes when he's been told off. Maybe I'm wrong????

What are your views on this?

If I'm cooking dinner and I want them in their beds, I just say 'bed' and in they go. I certainly don't punish them if they don't do it first time.

I tell Bodhi to get on her bed if I want her to get from under my feet, or, if I want her in her bed.

It means, go over there and sit down to her...

For instance, sometimes when I open the car door - I say "get on your bed", and she hops in a lies/sits down.

I can specifiy where her bed is by pointing, and she knows her "bed" is always a soft squishy place.

It's never ever a punishment... I don't punish Bodhi - I can't see the purpose in that - she is a dog and doesn't associate it with her action.

We say to to Hollie "on your bed" when she needs to be out of the way. As Bodhi said it is various places - somewhere for her to lay down out of the way.

Tilly and all previous dogs are told to 'in your bed' when we're having tea or are getting under my feet. Tilly has 2 beds, one for daytime use (in the livingroom) and one for night time use (in the kitchen) she's learning the difference bless her. I never, ever use it as a punishment.

Mine are all used to the term "go to bed", they always take themselves off to bed anyway when they're ready but, if they are under my feet I just say "bed" and off they go. No problems, just one of the few commands they choose to understand.

I always tell my two "go in yer bed" when we are eating. They don't always take a blind bit of notice but they're getting there

I tell mine "in your bed" too, not as a punishment, but they are crated, so when they need to go in there out of they way, they can.

If i said "bed"-Vegas would no doubt trot upstairs onto mine! No,i've never ordered a dog onto their bed cause i feel this is their special place and i dont want anything negative associated with it,but if he's in my way-i just say politely 'move' and he'll go somewhere else.
