Does your Dog Dream?
We all have seen it happen the shaking of the Legs, the twitch, and the sudden bark from your dog. Are they dreaming?
Many Scientists believe so and say there is evidence to support the notion they dream, in fact, experience dreams. Scientists use electroencephalogram (EEG) to have already tested scanned canine brain wave activity during sleep. With no surprise, they have found they sleep like humans regarding sleep patterns and brain wave activity, although I'm sure if I've ever jumped and shaken my face as my dog does, my partner will get a shock! As would I vice versa😊
Like humans, Dogs enter a DEEP, DEEP Sleep; their breathing becomes irregular, and they have REM, not the music group but Rapid Eye Movement. It is during the rapid Eye Movement that the FUN begins... Dogs may move their legs as if they are running, whine or whimper as they miss their favorite natural rubber toy (don't worry, we have replacements at www.naturalrubberpettoys.com )
Not all Dogs dream Equally.
Research has shown that small dogs dream more than larger dogs. A Cockapoo may dream once every ten minutes, while Labradors may only dream once every 90 mins. Dreaming also seems to occur more frequently in puppies (another plug we have great teething aids). This may be because they are taking a lot more new information each day.
What do dogs dream about?
Since I can't speak Canine, I sometimes feel I do! No dog has ever told anyone about their fantastic dreams; we can guess😊 and my thoughts would be they have been chasing an Ovo the egg continually all night SUCH Fun!
Seriously it's likely that dogs dream similarly to humans, replaying the everyday activities that make up their existence, like chasing, playing, and eating.
If you have been tempted or worried and your dog's jumps and movements, best not. It is best to let sleeping dogs SLEEP. Dogs, like humans, need uninterrupted sleep like us humans, and who knows, he may be having a great playing with his toys
