Encourage Your Dog to Sleep in Their Own Bed

Extract from The Importance of a Good Dog Bed, an article from the American Kennel Club, by Susan Paretts.

A study published in the 2017 edition of the Mayo Clinic Proceedings showed that having a dog sleep in your room improves your sleep, but having that pup sleep in the bed with you does not.

Sometimes it’s comforting to have your dog sleep on your bed with you. But often, it can disturb your sleep if your pup is tossing and turning. Or, worse yet, your dog is a large breed who takes up most of your sleeping space. 


It’s great to have your pup share your room but it’s best if your pooch has a cozy bed to sleep on away from your own bed. Then, even when you’re not there, they can relax in a spot that’s dedicated to them.


You can even get your pup more than one bed to snooze on. Consider placing several around your home. This encourages your dog to hang out on these beds rather than on your furniture. It also means you’ll clean less dog hair off of your couches and chairs.


A great dog bed provides your pup a space that’s not only comfortable but also supportive and soft. A cozy dog bed should be an oasis for your dog, away from the hustle and bustle of your home. Dogs are den animals so they appreciate having a spot where they can relax.

You can even place the bed within your pup’s crate. That way, it gives your pooch a cozy hide-a-way to hang out when they’re feeling stressed.
