Dogs are the most loved pets of all time. People consider dogs their family.
There are several things one should know if he owns a dog. The sleeping positions of a dog say a lot about his personality and moods. Here are 6 sleeping positions of a dog and what they might signify.
- The light doze
When your dog is sleeping in this position, they are not really deep asleep. It might mean that they feel bored or lazy. However, if you want them to wake up, a nudge or a mention of a fun activity might be helpful.
More often than not, inactivity or lack of fun stuff leads to a dog sleeping in this position. This is not a bad sign but you may want your dog to come out and have some fun instead of lazying around.
2. Sleeping on their side
If you find your dog sleeping on their side, it means they are comfortable and trust sleeping around you. A tired dog will sleep in this position as it often means they need a good amount of sleep. This sleeping position also means that they are in a deep sleep. You should probably just let them sleep peacefully if you see your dog sleeping on their side.
A dog really needs the sleep that he deserves and there is no better position to get a good sleep than this one.
3. Curled up in a ball
You may often see your pet curled up in a ball. This position signifies that they want to keep their body warm by curling up. When you see a dog in this position, you should rather let them rest as they might be feeling lazy or tired.
Dogs cannot always be expected to be active and running around all the time. This position will help them regain the energy they’ve spent playing or running.
4. Stretched out on their tummy
It is oftentimes that a dog is seen in a stretched-out position. The dogs probably are relaxed when they keep their body stretched like a flying Superman.
They are just as happy and relaxed as they seem. Who knows, they might even be dreaming about flying like a Superman. The power of sleeping like a Superman really should not be underestimated.
5. Paws in the air
When you see your dog keeping their paws up in the air, you can say they feel happy and relaxed doing so. It is a good sign and they also get to let some air in their exposed belly.
If you love your pet, you should know that they are happy and getting everything they could ever want from their human. In fact, only happy dogs sleep in this position so if yours sleep this way, you’re probably doing a good job as their owner.
6. Back to back
You might be very familiar with this position if you own more than one pet. When dogs form a deep bond with one another, they tend to show affection even when they are asleep. A back-to-back position usually shows bonding between a very happy family.
If you ever see your dogs sleeping with their backs on one another or see them piling up on each other on the couch, take a moment to click a picture. This position has to be the best of all the other positions as it shows a very good sign of your pets being happy around one another.
