Why does my dog take my clothes to bed?
A dog’s scent is one of his strongest senses. He can distinctly smell your scent on the clothes whether they are clean or dirty. You may also exhibit your dog rolling on your bed, clothes, or sheets from time to time. This is because he is trying to redistribute that ‘pack’ or family smell back onto himself.

Do dogs like when you talk to them?

A less obtrusive garment like a bandana may be okay, however.
