The dogs Poppy and Zeke hear my alarm go off each morning and stir as soon as it happens.

In order to hear them better during the night I leave my bedroom door open a crack with a laundry basket in front so Cinnamon stays in with me. I'm still keeping her separated from the others at night for a while - if Poppy growls at Zeke for getting rough, he backs off, and that's all that needs to happen. I don't need Cinnamon giving her a quick corrective chomp for telling Zeke he's out of bounds. Until we're able to resume a good daily walk schedule, I'll do this. Anyway, the alarm went off, I heard toenails, but didn't realize how many or how close until Zeke jumped up on top of me. Oooof! He was right back off the bed again, he knows he's not allowed up, but what a wake-up-call!

Anyway, it sounds like Luna is a good girl and is doing what she needs to in order to protect her human. Maybe some non-skid rugs around the bed would mean less toenail chatter.
