If you don’t let your dog sleep with you yet, you probably should. A new study showed that more than half of pet owners allow their pets to sleep in the same bed because they feel comforted by them. Whether you have a long, hard day, or you’ve had a great one… there’s no denying the good feelings that come from a snuggle with your dog.
Temma Martin from Best Friends Animal Society shared the following benefits of sleeping with your dog:
- Gives you comfort
- Keeps you warm
- Lowers your blood pressure
- Makes you feel calmer
- Beats insomnia
- Fights depression
- Helps you feel safe
- Strengthens the bond between dog and owner
Now if you don’t have a dog, you should head to Salt Lake County Animal Services (511 W 3900 S, SLC) to adopt Boots! He’s a 5-year-old Australian Shepherd mix who if a sweet, trained fluff ball.
