My Dog Boo
 
Hello all, This is my first time on the site, so please have patients with me.
I have a 3 year old American Pit Bull Terrier. He is the kindest, most loyal dog I have ever had. Very misunderstood breed. This guy is my best friend. My question is this....I have 2 couches in my living room. Each has a blanket and pillow on it. One is for me, the other for my Boo. Whenever I get up and leave the room, my dog gets off his spot and lays down on my pillow and blanket. It happens everytime I leave the room. He looks at me with sad eyes when I re-enter, so I usually lay with him for a few minutes, and gently show him his spot. Why does he do this, His couch is 3 feet from mine, and he has his own clean pillow and comforter. Any idea? It does not bother me that much, I just would like to know what this behavior means. Thank you...

My dog does this too , Boo likes your pillow because it smells like you. If I leave my nightgown on my bed my dog Marty will take a nap right on it. I have two pillows on my couch one for me and one for my dog and Marty will take over my spot when I get up. I like this on a cold day, my dog heat up my spot for me.

Sophie does this too! she has a really nice bed but as soon as I think she is sleeping and leave the room she jumps right in there! and she is not supposed to be on the coach!!!

Just keep telling him to get off and return to his spot. Some day he may figure it out!! :thumbs up

The OP is asking why does their dog likes to lay in their spot on the couch .

Yup I agree with the others - most likely your smell (or residual heat) that attracts the dooger to your spot.
