Do you ever wonder what your dog is dreaming about? Dr. Deirdre Barrett, with Harvard Medical School, says it’s likely our pooches dream about their everyday experiences, just like humans do. This means there’s a good chance they dream about their owners. Barrett says, “Humans dream about the same things they’re interested in by day, though more visually and less logically. There’s no reason to think animals are any different. Since dogs are generally extremely attached to their human owners, it’s likely your dog is dreaming of your face, your smell, and of pleasing or annoying you.” Barrett adds that you can try to improve your dog’s dreams by exposing them to “happy daytime experiences” and providing them with a safe and comfortable environment to rest in at night.
