Do Dogs Dream?

Sleeping Puppy

Of course dogs dream.  If you’ve ever noticed a sleeping dog have shallow, irregular breathing, followed by muscle twitching and eye movements behind closed eyelids, then your dog is dreaming.  The characteristics of sleeping and dreaming are very similar for both dogs and humans.  Dogs tend to get to dreaming much faster than people, typically within 20 minutes of dozing off.  What we don’t know , is what do dogs dream about?  Running, playing, eating, fun times or serious times?  Perhaps someday, we will bet let in on the secret of doggie dreams.
