“Common sleep-walking doesn’t occur during dreaming sleep, but a much more vigorous ‘REM behavior disorder’ is accompanied by dreams, so the more pronounced and fast the movements, the more likely they’re acting out a dream.”
This led us to our next question — is there a way to give our pet better dreams?
“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,” Barrett advised. “It’s a good bet this is also best for pets’ dreams.”
It makes complete sense. If you watch a horror movie before bed, of course you are going to have nightmares!
It’s great to know that our pets are on the same page as us for the most part. What do you think your pup is dreaming about?
