Sleeping issues, anyone?

Ladies, if you want to have restful and sound sleeping hours, start sharing your bed with your pooch! According to a recent study done in Canisius College in New York, women sleep better next to a dog than their human partner. Woof!

The details!

The team of researchers surveyed 962 adult women and 55 per cent of these shared the bed with at least one dog. Further, 57 per cent of these participants slept next to their human partner and 31 per cent shared their bed with at least one cat.

​Your pet dog is actually your best friend!

The participants who slept next to a dog reported better sleep quality and had stronger feelings of comfort and security. Guess, the bond we share with our pet dog is stronger (and more rewarding!) than we have with our significant others!

What about cats?

Interestingly, sleeping next to a cat was as disruptive as a human partner. The study concluded that sharing your bed with cat was associated with weaker feelings of comfort and security in comparison to both pooch and human. 

Not just this!

In case you want to go to bed and wake up early, become a dog parent. Yeah, that’s another benefit of having canine at your home. The research also concluded that dog owners actually had earlier bedtime and wake up times than the ones who only had a cat. Whoa! Dogs now have another reason to demand a belly rub from their owners!

What’s next?

Though, a study done by Mayo Clinic, a healthcare company, in 2017 also concluded that people slept better next to a dog but the researchers of this study want to study the impact pets have on a man’s sleeping pattern.
