Do Dogs Dream?

You may have noticed that at various times during their sleep, your dog may make leg twitches, or may even growl or snap at a dream monster!

Dogs brains are like ours. During sleep, the brain wave patterns of dogs are like that of humans and go through the same stages of electrical activity, which is consistent with the idea that dogs are dreaming.

It is easy to check when your dog is dreaming

As the dog’s sleep becomes deeper his breathing will become more regular. After about 20 minutes his first dream should start, and the sleepy woofs and twitches will start.

Much of the dreaming that they do at night is associated with the activities that they did in that day.

It is also thought that they dream about common dog activities like eating, chasing and getting petted.

Sweet dreams pups!
