Women sleep better with their rottweilers? Yes, it’s approved by new study that shows that dogs may not be just man’s best friend. Researchers at Canisius College proved that women tend to sleep deeper with their dogs by their side rather than their partners.
The survey of 962 women in the USA showed that 55% of women sleep with at least one dog, and 31% with a cat by their side. However, 57% shares their bed with human partner.
The study found that sleeping with dog by your side provides a feeling of comfort and security. It’s claimed that it’s less disturbing than the human partner. They also go to bed earlier and have a more accurate sleeping schedule.
The study found: “Dog ownership and its associated responsibilities may cause individuals to adhere to a stricter routine,” and also: “Keeping to a consistent sleep schedule may be beneficial to dog owners.”
On the other hand, cats were reported to be equally disruptive as human partners. They were associated with weaker feelings of comfort and security compared to dogs or humans.
