How your dog sleeps and what is says about their character and mood!

What type of sleeper is your dog? Experts say that their body positions tell us a bit more about their personality. 

So.. what type of position does your dog adopt when its nap time and what could it mean?  Here is a rundown of the most common sleeping poses and what this says about how your furry family member is feeling.

The Side Sleeper – the most common position! It could suggest they are relaxed & safe in their environment and also have traits of being trusting & loyal.

The ‘Lion’s Pose – a resting pose, which suggests they are ready to jump into play at any given moment! Known to be devoted, protective & ready to play.

The ‘Superman’ Pose – a pose suggesting they are very tired, in deep slumber but ready to rise to the opportunity of play! They usually have traits of being energetic & playful!

Curling Up – this position is a good one to stay cosy & preserve their body temperature. By curling around there vital organs that suggests they also want to protect themselves.

The Cuddler – one of the most adorable ones! A pose where they cuddle amongst a human or fur friend, which shows traits of being affectionate & loving, and also a sign of bonding.

Burrowing – finding them underneath blankets & pillows could mean they are seeking comfort & security. They usually have traits of being extremely affectionate and sometimes a little needy!

Belly Up – this position suggests they are very comfortable, loving & trusting. A very cute pose! They could also be keeping it cool as most heat escapes through their belly & paws!
