When we first adopted or mini doxie Nikki she had a terrible time calming down and going to sleep. She didn't want to be in the crate, on her dog bed or in our bed. She was nervous and skittish and she cried and whined and tried to jump from our very tall bed. We discovered if we put her Hug-A-Dog harness on her she'd roll over and go to sleep spread out on her back. Now lovingly referred to as the doggie swaddle in our house; we haven't had to use this method in many months, as now Nikki likes to curl up under to blankies with us!
You should be VERY impressed with my misting in this layout. :)
