Doggy dreamzzz are real, hoomans. Oh, and the scientists even think you’re in them!
As the resident doggo dreamer around here, I’m just going to jump right in and nip this in the bud. Yes, dogs really do need a proper bed. On average, we spend more than half our day sleeping! That’s a lot of time we’d much rather spend in comfy calming bliss than on wet grass, hard floors, and saggy daggy old beds!
Yep, just like our two-legged furriends, quality sleep and orthopaedic support can do wonders for our physical and mental wellbeing… and even lead to some pretty pawsome dreamzzz! And while I can’t speak for every dog (I much prefer barking), I’ve rounded up a few of my besties to spill the beans on some of their favourite dreams…
I've been known to be a bit active in my sleep... You know all those neighbourhood walkies, toy-chewing sessions, and important postie barking alerts we get up to when we’re awake? Well, we do them when we’re asleep too.
In fact, remembering all the things that had our tails wagging during the last 24 hours is believed to be one of the most common types of doggy dreams.
Pawsonally I just woke up from my cosy bed remembering an exciting meet, greet ‘n sniff with that cute new rescue at the park. And before that I dreamt of those thirty six seconds yesterday when I thought mum was finally going to give in and send a dinner scrap my way.
To the untrained eye, this dog bod of mine may appear to be… ‘laidback’. But unless you’ve joined me in my dreams, you wouldn’t know what kinds of extreme adventures I get up to. Like chasing magpies! I’ve heard it’s rabbits for farm dogs and burglars for Dobermans but for me... it’s magpies. In real life they see me coming and fly away. But not when I’m getting some serious shuteye on quality orthopaedic memory foam. That’s when I go from hound to hero!
There’s no tree too high. No street too wide. No creek bed too low. No… oooh, what’s that smell? Oh yeah, I forgot to tell you. My second favourite dream is going on an all-day sniffari. Gotta go, there’s a lamppost over there with my name on it!
As much as I love drifting off into 12-14 hours of beauty sleep, I also want to make sure I don’t miss a moment of awake-time on my oh-so-cosy calming bed. That’s when I do some of my best daydreaming. What happens if I actually catch my tail when I’m chasing it? Is Santa Paws real? Am I mum’s favourite? Why does orthopaedic memory foam feel so good? Does the cat know that I know where she goes at night?
Yep, you might be surprised to find out that I’m so thoughtful, but recent research suggests that good brain health is actually more common in dogs that get quality rest than those who don’t. Here’s to keeping those daydreams coming!
Promise I’m not just sucking up to get my paws on a luxury new bed or anything, but my pawrents really are the most important thing in my world! That’s why when I head off to the land of nod, I usually dream about all the ways I love to show my affection. Don’t believe me? One of the clever hoomans from Harvard Medical School said that “Basically, anything and anyone your dog engages with regularly is fair game when it comes time to dream.”
All I know is that during this morning’s calming nap, I dreamt I got mum’s attention with the beautiful big hole I dug for her in the garden. And last night I dreamt of telling dad it was time to wake up by giving him a nice big kiss right on the nose. Speaking of waking up – is it time for bed yet?
I may be a large dog, but I dream even bigger. That one day, dad’s slippers will be mine, all mine. That I’ll have unlimited use of the backyard to store my most precious bones and toys. Be recognised for my work training hoomans to fetch properly. Wake up to breakfast in bed each morning. Pee on every pole in my suburb. Collect all the odd socks for my trophy corner. Get to dine on my kibble in private. Enjoy great furriendships with cats. And finally put an end the torture that is bath time.
Am I asking for a lot? Maybe. Do I think anything is pawsible when I’m conked out, legs in the air and quite possibly drooling? (Fear not, the cover is washable.) Pup yeah!
I'm lucky that my mum looks after other doggos pretty regularly so I get to have furriends around, but as soon as they leave I'm dreaming of the next sleepover... Let the pawty never end I say!
Ah well, until then I have this cosy massage bed which feels pretty much like snuggling!
Sandwiches: Milo, can we take that again? I need to bring my snout down a touch
Milo: Omg Sandwiches fine, remember paw up and ears up
Sandwiches: Yep go! So keen for our new ring light coming in the mail btw
Milo: Me tooooo! And how cute do we look in this Possum Bed? The colour tones are pawfect and it's super soft. Did you hear it's memory foam?
Sandwiches: Whaaat that's pawsome!
