    Hi Burgertime!

    Certainly sounds like some sort of anxiety with the panting. What does he do if you leave the crate open and you close the door to the bedroom while you are on the bed. Will he settle on the floor or in the crate or will he try to get on the bed or get tour attention in anyway?

    Also, just confirm how you are doing with the exercises in pack structure section of the website. Specifically the parts about petting and furniture and beds.

    Will give us a point to start troubleshooting. Sometimes it is tricky when you don’t know the dogs early history. He may have been a bed dog for instance before you adopted him, so the site of the bed with people sleeping on it may make him feel he is missing out on something he once experienced. Keep in touch.
