Doesn't sound like anyone is sneepilg well.I suggest letting the dogs sleep in different areas of the house.I also suggest getting another bed just like the poodles, so the JRT can sleep on one, and not bother the poodle in the other. He obviously seems to like the larger bed.If you're adamant about not crating at night, you're asking for trouble letting both dogs be territorial over their sneepilg arrangements. The only way to fix it is to have more beds than can be fought over, or have them sleep in areas where they can't compete with eachother ie, separate rooms/crates.References : Was this answer helpful?
