    I'm usually a heavy sleeper. And sometimes I'll have the TV on or music playing. I've been looking into which breed of dog I want so that'll be my "alarm" once I get my dog.

    Not just a dog, but a rescue dog. Any dog given a second chance will try harder to keep their home intact. I sleep in a coma, until one little woof.

    ...I'm kinda the same way. My wife's a nurse and sometimes has to leave and come back in the dead of night or wee hours of the morning (phone ringing in the bedroom ...the works.) And the garage door is right below us and makes a LOUD noise in the bedroom when it operates, vibrating that whole end of the house ...but I never wake up to any of it. Sleep right through . She'll ask me if I knew she got 'called in last night' and I'll say, "whut?" I don't know what to do about that except maybe install an alarm that sounds off if an intruder tries to enter. Something that sounds just like my morning alarm clock...

    If you sleep soundly through the night (I do, too), I wouldn't go wishing to be a more easily disturbed sleeper. Sleeping well is a blessing!

    If you're that worried about being invaded, perhaps an alarm system (a nice loud one, loud enough for you) or a well-trained dog would take care of your apprehension.

    What's "kind of get SA"?

    During my sleep I kind of want to get some kind of Situational Awareness or something so if something goes crash in the middle of the night I dont sleep through it.

    Hate to tell you sir, but all wives are like that. Personally, it's a proven fact the only two things that will wake me up are gunshots and Military Basic Training Instructors! My wife, however, will wake up to anything...except me being a little 'frisky.' However, in the interest of this forum I am willing to test this theory out when I crawl into bed.

    Funny story, I was staying at my in laws (who work construction and are up at a god awful hour in the morning! [FYI- I was also working midshift at the time. I'd forgotten what the sun looked like.]) when my father in law thought he heard gunfire. My wife told him to wait a minute, and if I came out of the bedroom with my gun drawn he could worry, because that is the only thing that wakes me up!

    I learned to sleep through anything when I had to sleep through mortar attacks in Iraq. Basically if you couldn't sleep through them, you didn't sleep at all, and that wasn't an option. My dog makes sure that I'm up if anyone is near our front door or any windows.

    Yep. She gets up whether she hears something or not. Routine nocturnal patrol. I on the other hand have: slept through a tornado tearing down trees behind my house; slept through the EMS station alarm; apparently had entire conversations with my wife over 30-45 minutes that I could not recall the next morning; outlasted the 2 hour timer on my alarm clock.

    I used to be a light sleeper until I got put on Zyrtec for allergies. Half a pill before bed-time, and I'm out.

    Luckily, our 20-pound mutt has the growl of a large dog and serves as a great alarm, and also a pre-alarm clock in the morning with the face-licking, ear-scratching, and bed romping.

    If you don't have the time, patience, or energy to devote to a dog and its many needs, don't get one just for the sake of having an alarm. There's plenty of other alarms, like the portable battery-operated kind you hang from your door knob.

    Did this, myself. With a good perimeter system and an alarm in the wall above the bedroom doorway, I never fail to wake up. I've slept through a 6.7 earthquake, but that alarm wakes me up me every time. Go figure.
