By: Allyson Souza/The Little Things We’ve all heard that we shouldn’t do it: inviting your dog into your bed. People believe it’s dirty, and it’s just not good for you. People have been saying it for years.
But, what if we told you that maybe that isn’t entirely true.
There are actual health benefits to letting your four-legged best friend spend the night, and it isn’t just you who’s better for all that cuddle time.
It’s better for your dog, too!
And who doesn’t want to do everything they can to make sure their little one is as happy as possible?
So to all, you dog lovers who love snuggling up with their warm, fluffy buddy at the end of the day, keep doing what you’re doing.
Chances are, you’ll sleep better at night and we all know that better sleep leads to a better day.
It really is a win-win situation for everyone involved!
#1: They Give You Comfort
#2: They Fight Insomnia
#3: Snuggling With Them Relieves Stress And Anxiety
As therapy dogs have shown, a pooch’s presence is a great stress reliever. Their positive outlook seems to be contagious, and their attentive nature can be very reassuring.
#4: They Provide Warmth
#5: They Help Fight Depression
#6: They Make You Feel Safe
Knowing that there is another presence watching over you when you’re at your most vulnerable is such a comforting feeling. Their super hearing and tendency to bark at strangers are all factors in this.
#7: It’s Good For Your Dog, Too
There’s nothing in the world that your dog loves more than you, so allowing them to spend that extra snuggle time will make their day. They receive comfort from you in the same way that you do from them, so this sleep arrangement is good for everyone!
