Dogs in bed!

Sleeping with dogs is normal for more than a half of dog owner’s. The survey of pet owners by the American Pet Products Association found that 62% of small dogs, 41% of medium-sized dogs and 32% of large dogs sleep with their owners.

Is it healthy let your dog sleeping in your bed?
Don’t worry about thoughts concerning bacterias and fungus. If you care about your dog well (including washing, veterinary visits) - the exposure to many types of bacteria can only help your immune system, which can help you elude disease, and even help you maintain a healthy weight and good mood.
But, of course, don’t even try to sleep together if you have an allergy: your immune system is primed to overreact to the allergens and your bed becomes an allergen epicenter.
Your pet can disturb your sleep. Especially, if you sleep not so deep as always wanted. Sleep deprivation, no matter the cause, can lead to decreased alertness, memory impairment, and other physical and mental health issues.
These three issues are most popular to speak about on the Internet while “dog-talks”. Most people are worried about health questions and comfort - forgetting how many mental and psychological advantages sleeping with a dog can bring.
Here are our linen sheet set bought by our Etsy customer Karla:
Some people feel calmer with a dog in their bed. Simply knowing your dog is here to alert you to danger may help you sleep more deeply. All that warmth, comfort, and safety is great for dogs too. Co-sleeping can help you develop a strong bond with your dog.
As dogs have rhythmic breathing - it can just put out the one who have insomnia. The rhythmic sounds of your dog’s breathing, snoring, and heartbeat can lower your heart rate.
Related to feelings of safety and calm, touching pets raises levels of oxytocin in our bodies. Oxytocin, also known as the “cuddle chemical,” increases our feelings of relaxation, trust, and psychological stability.
