What a Sleeping Position Can Reveal About Your Dog

What does a dog’s sleeping position mean? Most dog owners know about their pets' habits and easily understand when their dog is happy, worried, surprised, or scared. You can also reveal some of your dog's secrets by analyzing its favorite resting position. TIMESTAMPS: The Snowball 1:17 The Pancake 2:12 Superman 3:26 Curled up in a ball 4:29 On its back 5:36 The Dead Cockroach 6:27 The Sphinx 7:36 The Burrower 7:18 Bonus: How to understand that your dog is absolutely unique 8:50 Music: SUMMARY: - The snowball is one of the most popular positions among dogs — and among cats as well! In this position, a dog curves its spine, and its nose is located not far from its tail. - The pancake is the most restorative position for sleep, and, in most cases, that's exactly when REM sleep occurs. So don't get spooked if your doggy starts to kick and paddle out of the blue. It's just acting out its dreams. - If you notice that your adult dog prefers Superman position, it may indicate that it feels hot. Perhaps it's been a sweltering day or your dog has been playing and exercising too hard. Your dog may be simply exhausted. - You can sometimes catch your pet curled up in a tight ball with its tail wrapped around its body and its paws neatly tucked away. This way of sleeping resembles the fetal position in humans. - If your dog prefers sleeping on its back with its front legs bent over its chest and its back legs extended, you’ll probably guess that it feels at ease. - By sleeping in the dead cockroach position, your pet can be cooling off. You must have noticed that some areas of dogs' tummies aren't as fluffy as the rest of their body. - The sphinx position allows your dog to take off running as soon as you call it. Not many dogs sleep this way, and this is kind of a transitional state between wakefulness and rest. - If your pooch is a burrower, it needs more affection and attention than any other animal. When such dogs snuggle into something cozy, they are searching for security and comfort. - If you notice that one part of your pet rests on a comfortable sofa and the other resides on a hard, unforgiving floor AND your dog is sound asleep at this time, congratulations! You're the owner of a unique dog!

My dog, Baby sleeps in all the positions mentioned depending on how much exercise she got that day and what the temperature is. She definitely is a burrowing dog, but gets hot under the covers so goes to her bed in the livingroom to cool off. Baby is a hooman and loved deeply. She is a rescue. Her Papa (my husband) and her have an extreme closeness.

You know how cats sleep with their paws tucked under as a cat loaf ? Well my rough collie sleeps like this after growing up around cats. He's also very timid and gets scared of the silliest things - the scales (he doesn't like being weighed) a certain ring binder sets him on an adventure course to get as far away as possible and hard floors scare him the most. There is an evil chair that he broke and will not go near after it was fixed and he thinks that he is a police dog when it comes to cat fights or sudden movements. (He acts as if he has to break it up or the world will end.) He gets very jealous when other pets get cuddled and he doesn't and if anyone hugs they must hug him too. He is the best womble, I wouldn't swap him for anyone ;)

One of our dogs does the dead cockroach and upside down (he's been with us since 4 months old) and our other one who my partner rescued mostly sleeps curled in a ball (he was very badly abused by the 1st owner and they even burnt him on his head and face and it made him aggressive but he's a totally different dog now)
