7 Reasons You Should Let Your Dog Snuggle With You Every Night

Bed time just got that much better.

For years, people have warned against letting our furry friends sleep in bed with us. These so called ‘experts’ rattle off stats and figures about dog dirtiness and rabbit chasing dreams that will keep you up at night… but it’s simply not true. To combat naysayers, we’ve compiled a solid list of 7 reasons you should let your dog snuggle up to your feet at night, and we dare someone to offer up a better argument.

Check them out below!

#1: They fight insomnia.

Their presence provides a remedy to everything that keeps you up at night. Who could worry about work the next day when your little fluff monster is curled up at your feet? Not I.


#2 They provide comfort.

Their warm little bodies and rhythmic breathing help you settle into a good REM cycle like no other.


#3 Close contact helps relieve worry and anxiety

A huge number of therapy dogs are assigned to their humans for exactly this reason. Our pups are always happy to see us and ready to brighten up your day. What better way to drift off to dreamland?


#4 They keep you warm at night

There’s no worse torture than trying to get warm on a cold night. But your little furry one can provide the perfect measure of warmth to help keep you comfortable on those frigid nights.


#5 They chase away the blues

Whatever battle you’re facing, dogs offer unconditional love like no other earthly being. Their constant companionship can make all the difference in your life.


#6 They guard you at night

Knowing that somebody has your back is the best feeling in the world.

We’re most vulnerable when asleep, so what could be better than knowing that nothing will enter your home without your pup waking you up?


#7 It’s best for your dog too!

Dogs are a part of our lives, but we are our dog’s whole life. They love you more than anything in this world and cherish every moment the two of you spend together. Make the most of your time together and let them snuggle up in bed with you. Both of you will be better off for it.
