Most of us have had an indoor pet at one point or another in our lives. They’re so adorable, so why wouldn’t you want them to share the bed with you? Well, there are actually pros and cons to doing that. A pro is that most sleep better with their dog because they feel a certain sense of comfort and security knowing they’re there. A con is that dogs snore and some even act out their dreams, such as running.
These can be very disruptive for someone trying to fall asleep. If you’re going to let your dog sleep with you, evaluate your sleep setup. Be sure your mattress is big enough for everyone involved, and change your bedding more frequently due to the increase of bacteria and fungus the dog may bring to the bed.
