We trained Murphy a little differently.

We brought him home at 8 weeks and, the first 3 nights tried crate training. He woke us up several times each night, we'd let him out, then get him back to sleep.

On night 4 I decided to try something different. We kept him awake for 4 hours or so before bedtime, then he slept in our bed.

The first couple weeks he'd wake us up once during the night to go outside. After that he starting sleeping all night. It's very rare for him to wake during the night and he loves to cuddle up with one of us.

I always told myself I'd never allow a pet in bed, but for us it works well. It may be just dumb luck, but we've never had an accident in bed and we all sleep much better. Now I can't imagine not having Murphy sleep with us.
