Dog sleeping positions

How you bed him…

…that’s how it lies. Sleeping positions in dogs are not accidental. They reveal a lot about his character and sometimes about his current state of mind. Dogs – just like humans – usually have a favorite sleeping posture, which you can observe especially in deep sleep. Sleeping positions in dogs range from the casual sleeper who likes to lie on his back with his paws outstretched, to the protective posture of a shy deer.

Before buying an orthopedic dog bed, it is advisable to find out the preferred sleeping position of your dog – because it also depends on whether you would be better off choosing a dog mat, a dog pillow, or a dog bed. All Traumhund® orthopedic dog sleepers have identically good pressure relief and are suitable for healthy dogs as well as for dogs with joint diseases.

Here is an overview of the most common sleeping positions for dogs and our sleeping position recommendation that fits your dog. Of course, we will also be happy to advise you personally.

Dog mats for floor sleepers

Sleeping positions in dogs: the floor sleeper. Some dogs just won’t accept a place to sleep. They prefer basically the bare floor, at most a carpet or a dog blanket may be it additionally.

If you have such a floor sleeper at home, it is usually not a cause for concern. Your dog simply does not like to lie softly and therefore does not accept conventional filling such as volume fleece or puffy polyester flakes. However, this sleeping position in dogs can also be an indication of joint disease. A hard surface allows the dog to put coordinated stress on the joints when standing up. If in doubt, check with your veterinarian.

Dog cushion for Superdogs

Sleeping positions in dogs: the superdog. Superdogs need a lot of space when sleeping and like to stretch out completely. Their preferred sleeping posture ranges from a relaxed side position to a casual supine position, all paws stretched in the air. Superdogs are usually extroverted and confident dogs who like to be the center of attention and trust their surroundings without hesitation. You don’t want to miss anything even when you sleep.

Dog beds for nest builders

Sleeping postures in dogs: The nest builder. Sensitive and anxious dogs are often nest builders when it comes to sleeping positions. They like to curl up like a shy deer when sleeping so that the sensitive areas of the neck and stomach are protected. A need that is still strong in some dogs today.

The background: wild dogs have a valuable instinct. For sleeping they dig a hollow in soft earth. These natural dog beds act like a nest where they are protected from the environment. Here they can rest – curled up and nestled together. A sleeping position that guarantees the best possible safety for the dog.
