When Dog’s Day Is Over, They Dream Of You, Says Harvard Psychologist

Researchers have dedicated considerable time to study sleep behaviors in animals. One recent study indicates that dogs dream about their owners while asleep.

Key takeaways:

  • Dr. Deirdre Barrett, a Clinical and Evolutionary Psychologist, reports that dogs, just like humans, are most likely to dream about their everyday experiences.
  • Animals such as dogs have similar sleep cycles to human beings. The cycle oscillates between deep sleep and REM sleep in which dreams occur.
  • Since dogs are closely attached to their owners, they will probably dream of the owner’s face, smell or ways of pleasing the owner.

She said: “The best way to give ourselves or our children better dreams is to have happy daytime experiences and to get plenty of sleep in a safe and comfortable environment. It’s a good bet this is also best for pets’ dreams.”
