I have a HUGE bed that she sleeps in that I got from jefferspet.com its very plush and its on my side of the bed cause she likes the air to blow on her. As for exercise I take noel with me when I am feeding, moving hay, or even if I am just going to brush the horses. She is laid back and wont mess with them. I also hide things in her "pasture" (its a 100'x 65' x 100') pen that I used to put my mares and babies in. I found that if I "work" her brain and her body just like with horses she rests better. Try taking him on long walks or hide treats for him to search and find even if he is not a hound he will like finding them in the field. My noel is 8mths old and she really sleeps like a baby at night.
i have my bloodhound & my horses what more can a girl ask for?
