Canine Sleeping Positions and What They Mean

1 post in this topic

Story at-a-glance

  • The way your dog sleeps — curled up in a ball, spread out over the entire bed or on his back, for instance — can give you insights into your dog’s mood
  • Sleeping on his side with his legs outstretched is a sign of a fully relaxed, confident and content dog
  • Dogs often sleep curled up in a donut shape, with their nose nearly touching their tail; this conserves body heat while also protecting his organs from predators
  • A dog sleeping on his back, perhaps with his legs up in the air, is confident in his surroundings
  • If your dog prefers to sleep pressed up against you or perhaps another dog in your family, this likely goes back to his days of being a puppy, when he and his littermates piled together for security and warmth
