While animal lovers and health practitioners can keep sparring over this one, we take an overview of whether or not your should allow your dog to sleep on the same bed and mattress as you-

The Pros
The sense of security they provide with their warmth and unconditional love, banishes all fears and helps you sleep better. If you are worried they may disturb you by moving around through the night, you can always plug in ear buds just like you would do if you had human company. They are the best companions and will stop you from feeling lonely and restless in case your eyes open anytime at night. It is natural if you are by yourself in an empty room, to begin a reality check on your life and drive yourself insane. They can make you feel wanted and loved by their mere presence, calming you down.

While some view it as a dog’s privilege, it is more of a man’s privilege to sleep besides a comforting pet. Many experts have asserted having a pet lie next to you, can actually reduce blood pressure and cut down the chances of depression. For those crying foul, calling it a present day phenomena of “spoiling your dog”, did you know the Egyptian pharaoh, Rameses the Great had a hound called Pahates who carried the title of “Bed Companion to the Pharaoh.” Alexander the Great was known for sleeping beside his great greyhound, Peritas. Peter the Great, Czar of Russia, slept with his Italian Greyhound, Lisette. Just some examples from History amidst many.

The Cons
Ensure your dog doesn’t have any flees or infections. It is unfair to blame your dog for catching any of it as it is your duty to keep your pet healthy and safe. Of course it is possible to catch any of it if you are in close proximity to your pet, whether sleeping close by or sitting in the same space. Ensure your pet’s well being and in return your own. Slay the risk!
