We have all heard that sleeping with your dog or cat in bed is a bad idea. However, sleeping with pets is not unusual in the USA. According to a study conducted by the American Pet Products Association, almost half of dogs sleep in their owner’s beds.
HEALTH CONCERNS. People who suffer from pet allergies should not sleep with their pets.
EMOTIONS. Our fur babies have a special place in our hearts and it can be therapeutic to have them in bed with us.
It is fine to have your pets in bed as long as it does not disrupt your sleep cycle or health. Just make sure not to roll over on your fur baby!
