We all know every dog enjoys a good snooze, and nothings more precious than having them curled up at your feet. But when does it start interfering with health, or can it be the sign that there’s something going on that might need medical attention.
Sleeping too much can cause weight gain. And being overweight for a dog puts a lot of pressure on their joints, bones, and can cause problems such as diabetes or heart disease among other things.
Having some kind of activity as a daily routine is important to maintaining good health.
But we all know getting our sleep is important too. So naturally if your dog can’t talk, how do you know when to step in and take action?
The Sleep Help Institute put together a very informative guide on “Everything You Need To Know About How Dogs Sleep.”
From daily routines, to different stages, to dreaming, and health concerns. This guide gives good insight on how sleep affects the health and happiness of your pet.
