When You Let Bowser in your Bedroom, Do You Still Get Good Zzzzz’s?

A study done by Dr. Lois Krahn from the Mayo Clinic finds that letting dogs sleep in bedrooms helps people get a better night’s snooze.

Researchers analyzed 40 adults without sleep disorders and their dogs over five months. The participants (and their pooches) wore activity trackers to monitor their sleeping habits.

Results revealed that a better night’s sleep was had WITH the pet in the room, regardless of the animal’s breed. The caveat? Bowser buddy can be in the bedroom but not in the BED itself. Snuggling up to animals in bed reduces sleep quality (drooling and snoring doggies might impact this 🙂

So you can let sleeping dogs in.  Just don’t let sleeping dogs LIE (well you know what I mean 🙂

Now about that eviction plan……
