Barney, our previous dog, always used to sleep under the stairs.
In our first house, this was a spiral staircase, and Hubby built a folding gate that could be put in place at night or when we were out to confine him to that and the kitchen. When he got older, we actually made him a proper run and kennel outside, though when we were home, he was always inside with us.
In our second house, he was content to lie at the bottom of the stairs, and made no attempt to come up, though when Mum came to stay he’d ‘show her to her room’ and then come back to his bed.
When we moved again, he was stumped. We’d bought a bungalow, so being a single storey property, there were no stairs. However, he soon adapted and slept on his beanbag in the lounge.
