Psychologist Believes That Dogs Dream About The Humans They Love


For a dog owner is always a pleasure seeing their pets sleeping soundly, and a lot of time we are curious what are our pets dreaming about, are they dreaming for us or their favorite food?
A Harvard psychologist, Dr. Deirdre Barrett has been studying humans sleep behaviors for years now, along the way of the studies Dr. Barrett also learned some things about animal’s dreams.
Dogs just like many mammals have almost the same sleeping cycle as humans and according to Dr. Barrett, “That certainly makes it the best guess that other mammals are dreaming, too.” He reported in an interview with People.
Just like humans, dogs undergo a stage that is called Rapid Eye Movement or REM, and it’s the phase in the cycle when mammals experience dreaming.

When Dr. Barrett asked what dog’s dreams about he answered: “since dogs are generally extremely attached to their human owners, it’s likely your dog is dreaming of your face, your smell and of pleasing or annoying you.”
Dr also answered the question if we can do anything to ensure that our pets only dream about pleasant things he said: “The best way to give ourselves or our children better dreams is to have happy daytime experiences and to get plenty of sleep in a safe and comfortable environment.”

Seeing a dog sleeping always gives you a peaceful feeling, no matter what they dream about.
