Some people let their dogs roam their bedrooms at night, while others forbid them to do so, but which of the two is healthier?
Your dog may help you sleep better at night
According to the American Veterinary Association, over 40 million Americans own dogs. Of these, 63% of people consider their pet dogs to be part of their family, and despite that they are separated during sleep; Everyone sleeps in his designated place. According to the American International Business Times, there is a solution to this problem in a recent study published by the American medical research “Mayo Clinic” this month. The study entitled “The Effect of Dogs on Human Sleep in the Home Sleeping Environment” concluded that the presence of dogs in their owners’ bedrooms helps them improve the quality of their sleep, but they do not sleep in the same bed. Which means that kicking your four-legged friend out of your room to get ready for bed is a bad idea
The study was based on following 40 people who own dogs, and they put accelerometers on the dogs and their owners for 7 nights, then the researchers determined the results. After 5 months, it was found that they did not suffer from any sleep-related disorders. And one of the doctors at the “Mayo Clinic”: They discovered that many people actually found a great deal of comfort and a sense of safety because of sleeping with their pets. He adds that most pet owners spend a large part of their day away from them, so they want to double the time they spend with them after they return home, and allow them to enter the bedrooms at night, an easy way to do this especially since it does not have a negative impact on sleep quality.
