Let sleeping dogs... Print E-mail

Most of us have experienced the misery of a night of tossing and turning - usually after a stressful day. But Hungarian researchers have found that dogs can also suffer! In a study of 16 dogs, the team found that good or bad experiences prior to sleep affected its quality. In one group the dogs were played with by their owners and generally made a fuss of while the other group were left alone and ignored. The "lucky" group enjoyed a good hour of sleeping normally while the "unlucky" ones slept less and more restlessly. Admittedly this is a very small study but it could have interesting implications: if a dog regularly sleeps badly will it become more aggressive? In the same way that humans become more irritable with lack of sleep?
