We’ve heard the complaints: “DON’T LET YOUR DOG SLEEP IN YOUR BED.” People think that it’s not good for you, health-wise, most probably because they think it’s dirty. But that’s not true. Instead of the negative innuendos, it is rather good that your dog sleeps in the same bed – both for you and your dog.
Here are the reasons why:
1. Dogs give you comfort
It’s always comforting to cuddle your dog and feel the warmth of their body and hear their rhythmic breathing. Things become much cozier.
2. Dogs help you fight Insomnia
In their presence, you will feel safe and don’t feel much stress. That sense of security will keep you away from things that prevent you from having a good night’s sleep.
3. Snuggling them helps you with your anxiety and stress problems
As mentioned earlier, they are a great stress reliever. What they spread is their positive outlook and how they are attentive can be encouraging to you.
4. Dogs provide warmth
As soon as you curl them up, you can feel the sense of warmth flowing from their body to yours. It might not be that effective in summer, but one can surely keep warm on a cold night.
5. Dogs help you fight depression
When someone goes through depression, it becomes hard for him/her to connect with someone. Dogs provide unconditional love, and someone battling depression can easily connect with that love. It can do wonders to fight during sketchy days.
6. Dogs make you feel safe
As dogs are known for providing security, letting them sleep with you on your bed will make you feel secured. You will know that there is someone watching over you, especially when you feel like you’re vulnerable.
7. Win Win situation for both
It’s good for your dog too. Your dog loves you the most. So when you let them sleep with you on your bed, you are exchanging the mutual trust with your dog. It will make their day if you just cuddle him/her up in your bed.
