Psychologists believe dogs are dreaming about their loving owners 11/11/2016 • George Hovater
Some scientists believe our dogs can dream about a lot of things, just like we do. Let's find out more about the secrets of dogs' sleep!
Dogs are dreaming: true or false?
Harvard psychologist, Dr. Deirdre Barrett, says they are. Moreover, dogs don't dream about chasing cats and playing with toys, they dream about their beloved owners.
Do animals really dream while sleeping?
Dr. Barrett has been studying humans’ sleep for years and can take sleep behavior in humans as a guide. Most mammals have similar sleep cycle. Dogs are one of them. Dreams occur during the last phase of the cycle when our brain is the least active and is in deep sleep. This induces psychologists to suppose that other animals dream too.
Man's best friends
Dr. Barrett wanted to find out what dogs are dreaming about, so she started from analyzing humans’ sleep. People dream about ordinary things and everyday events. There is no reason to think dogs are any different. Dogs extremely depend on their owners; they treat owners as friends and even guides. So it’s more likely your pet is dreaming about your face and smell, of pleasing or annoying you.
Have happy day experience with your loving pets to make their dreams better.
