Why Your Dog Should Sleep with You On the Bed

Somethings just fill your heart without even trying!

We’ve all been told not to do it, inviting our dog to share space with us on our beds. Getting your dog accustomed to sleeping next to you to your bed is a strict no-no, it’s considered to be dirty, unhygienic and just wrong in general. Then, how come (and every dog owner will be all too familiar with this feeling), it feels like we’re stuck in between a rock and a hard place when we have to put on a stern face and forcibly tell our fuzzy little buddies to climb down, when all we want to do is snuggle with them a little bit longer? However, what if we told you that sharing your bed with your dog isn’t as bad as the world thinks it to be and that it has its own advantages that could become reasons compelling enough to make an exception and break this cardinal rule? Getting your four-legged bestie into bed with you has actual health benefits and we’re not just talking about the free cuddle that you get to enjoy, it’s better for your dog, as well! If you’re wondering what these reasons are, here are five pretty solid ones as to why you should let your dog sleep with you on your bed.

For Comfort

Who doesn’t like to be comfortable while trying to fall off to sleep. But somehow, despite the fluffy pillow, the soft bed and the warm blankets, there are times where we feel that there’s just something missing. That something is your dog! Allowing your dog into bed while trying to sleep results in bringing comfort not only for yourself but your dog as well. Whether it’s their warm bodies, their rhythmic breathing or both, something about a dog makes your bed feel even more warm and cosy.

To Fight Insomnia

There are several reasons why it’s becoming increasingly difficult to fall asleep peacefully at night and one of them is insomnia. A clinical condition that causes loss of sleep, one of the primary causes of insomnia these days is our hectic work-life schedules where we find ourselves being stretched beyond limits. Fortunately, our dogs can help us battle this. Research shows that their very presence promotes calm and relaxation which in turn enables us to sleep better at night!

To Relieve Stress & Anxiety

Stress and anxiety, two of our best friends who never seem to leave our side. Life in the 21st century is such that we’ve all become too used to stress and anxiety being a part of our lives. To say that this isn’t good and that it really messes with our balance and has severe repercussions, is an understatement. In situations like this, it’s our dog to the rescue once again. A dogs’ presence overall, is a great stress reliever. Their positive outlook is contagious and their attentive and caring nature is very reassuring and can bring about a sense of tranquility. As therapy dogs have shown time and again, sharing your blanket with your furry best friend can literally take away all of the things that keep you up at night!

To Fight Depression

Depression is a word that is very loosely used in today’s day and age. Either we all think we’re suffering from it or (and this is worse) the people who actually are, aren’t aware of it. irrespective of whether it’s clinical or not, feeling depressed isn’t a good thing and when you feel it consuming you, it’s a sign that you need to do something about it and fast. Once again, it’s your dog to the rescue. Dog reduce triggers that cause depression and whether it’s the feeling of unconditional love or their ever reassuring presence, having a dog to pet at night can alleviate you from your deepest, darkest thoughts. Sure, blankets and pillows are warm and cosy, but they just don’t compare to a dog’s warm body and soft fur.

For a Free Cuddle

Who doesn’t like a warm cuddle at night while trying to fall asleep? Who doesn’t like drifting off knowing that they have something warm and fuzzy to hang on to for the night? A free snuggle in bed is always up for grabs, it brings happiness, comfort, reassurance, makes us feel safe, protected and loved, and when you have your dog next to you in bed, then all of this and more is made possible. There’s no one in the world that our dog loves more than you, and sometimes (if not at all times), this feeling is mutual. So, if you’re that kind of a dog-lover who can’t control themselves from cuddling with your little ball of fluff, keep doing what you’re doing. It’s a win-win situation and chances are; you’ll sleep better at night. And since we all know that a good night’s sleep can turn even the gloomiest day around, why not work towards making each day the best version of it.

Few things bring as much joy and comfort as having your own, personal snuggle buddy in bed with you and now that you know the benefits of sharing your blanket at night with your dog, you can agree that happiness starts with a wet nose and ends with a wagging tail!
