Why Dogs are the Best Sleeping Companions

If you’re a woman who wants to get better sleep – cuddle up to your dog at night, instead of your significant other! A study in the Journal of the International Society of Anthrozoology found that women who snuggle in bed with their dog get a better night’s sleep….better than if there’s another human by their side, or a cat!

The researchers found that women were disturbed less in their sleep by dogs than humans, and had stronger feelings of comfort and security.

So what about the women in the study who slept with cats? The cats were equally as disruptive as human partners, and cats were associated with weaker feelings of comfort and security than both human and dog bed-partners. 

The study also found that dog owners went to bed and woke up earlier than cat owners – and kept a more consistent sleep schedule. And we know from previous research that going to bed and waking up at the same time every day is a huge factor when it comes to overall good health and good moods. 

So, the research is clear! Dogs make the best sleeping companions!
