The benefits of sleeping with your dog, according to science

According to a study by the University of California, 56% of people with puppies sleep with them, but is this hygienic? is it good for you? or bad for your sleep? 🤔


First the pros:




The main reason people choose to share a bed with their puppy is that it provides comfort and security, which helps improve your mental health by reducing stress and anxiety.


Experts have proven that human-animal interactions improve our heart rate and blood pressure.


Surely it has happened to you that on a hot night the last thing you want to do is share your bed with someone else, however, it has been proven that sleeping with your dog is less uncomfortable for your sleep quality than sleeping with a cat… or with another person.

It all depends on the size of your bed, your pet and his sleeping habits, but if you notice that you wake up refreshed the next day, he’s sure to be a good nap buddy.

But are there cons? 🧐


If you have allergies, you may prefer to avoid it as furry people often carry dust and pollen with them that can make your night uncomfortable.


In addition, although the risk is low, you could come into contact with their poop or bring fleas, ticks or a host of microbes, viruses and bacteria into your litter that you can avoid by cleaning their paws with Clean Pawer® and its 100% lomito friendly alcohol-free formula.
