Thanks for that link, now I know how my girl, Scout, does it. Now where do I get her one of those vests? :)

I had a dog that used to lay across my neck when I was sleeping and going low. He always woke me up doing that and he was right 100% of the time. It was annoying to be woken up like that, but he knew what he was doing. Not a trained dog, just a smart one. During the day, he left me to figure it out for myself. :)

Scout licks my face and barks until I wake, again no training. Thankfully Scout hasn't gone for laying across my neck, she weighs 30Kg (66 pounds) and that weight on my neck would probably kill me off :)
