Your Dog's Sleeping Position Actually Means Something

Screen Shot 2020-10-14 at 2.26.30 PM
Ever watch your dog sleep? Ever notice that your dog's sleeping position changes now and then? Well according to dog behavior experts, each sleeping position means something a little bit different. For example, dogs who sleep on their side with their legs extended feel safe, relaxed and are at a comfortable temperature. On the other hand, dogs who sleep all curled up with their limbs tucked in want to protect themselves and preserve body heat.
