This week is National Sleep Awareness Week.
So how aware are you of how your dog sleeps?
Here's 5 things to know about dogs and sleep.
Sleep is just as important for a dog as it is for a human. And while it seems like your dog can sleep anywhere, sometimes having a good place to sleep can be just as important -- and the older the dog, the more comfort they leave.
2) Boredom can also make them sleep more. An active, healthy dog may sleep less. Dogs that are bored tend to sleep because there is nothing else to do. Beware -- boredom can also lead to behavioral problems.
|Dogs have been sleeping like this for ages.|
|If your dog twitches or groans in their sleep, they are dreaming about something that happened to them.|
5) And dogs can have sleep problems too. Dogs can get sleep apnea or insomnia, among other things. And these problems can be caused by the same things that cause those problems in humans. A trip to the vet may help your pet.
So a good bed can go a long way toward helping them sleep well.
Branded Pet Beds sells Serta pet beds, using the same technology they use in human beds.
Lulu and Jasmine have this bed, a Serta Quilted Pillow Top Bed. We reviewed it last year. It uses a therapeutic memory foam mattress. We've had our bed for almost a year now, and it still has its shape -- and I've laid on this bed with the dogs from time to time. It's pretty sturdy, and great if you have a dog with joint issues.
Now Branded Pet Beds is bringing Serta's iComfort system to pet beds.
