The position in which your dog sleeps reveals secrets about his personality. Fascinating!
If there’s one thing good dog owners know, it’s the complex personalities and expressions of their beloved pups. From a wag of the tail to a simple buzz, owners know what their precious pooches are like inside and out.
We already know that our dogs have some very specific ways of telling us they love us, but there are additional physical cues we can explore to understand more about our dogs’ personalities and habits.
In this exclusive guide below, we look at some of the most common sleeping positions that dogs around the world choose.
Very interesting is that depending on whether they are “outdoors” or “indoors”, our puppies assume different sleeping positions. In addition, all dogs choose to rest in different positions that allow them to do many things, from conserving body heat to being ready to jump quickly into action.
Watch and read below about some of the most common positions dogs sleep and rest in.
1. Side sleeping
Many dogs love to sleep on their sides. This, according to Dog’s Best Life, is a calm, restful position.
If your dog tends to sleep on his side, it means that he is incredibly comfortable with his surroundings and is self-assured.
And even though your dog may be watchful and alert when he’s awake, he feels blessed to be in your home and in your company, and he has great confidence in you.
Dogs that sleep in this position tend to be happy, carefree, and very loyal.
2. “The Fox”
The crouched position is probably the most common. Their legs are comfortably hidden under their bodies, and their tails wrap along with their bodies until they touch their faces.
By snuggling, your dog is naturally conserving his body heat and protecting his limbs, face, throat, and vital organs.
Dogs that sleep in this position are docile, easy to handle and carry, and have a naturally sweet disposition.
3. Super pet
Many dogs sleep on their stomachs, but puppies that sleep in the “super pet” position are probably the most adorable of them all. With their four limbs extended above the ground, they look as if they are flying through the air.
This position makes it easy for the puppies to start moving as soon as you call them, or as soon as they have been woken up.
Puppies that sleep in this position have super energy, are motivated, and are very happy.
