Everyone knows that the power of a good night’s sleep can cause you to feel completely refreshed and renewed by the morning. But does a good night’s sleep have the same type of benefits for dogs?
At All Natural Dog Beds, the leading provider of quality non-toxic dog beds, we want your dog to live a healthy life. You might be surprised to learn that investing in a better mattress for your pet can help improve learning, memory and comfort! The following are three of the most exciting benefits of improved pet sleep that researchers have discovered.
- Improved learning and memory. If you’ve ever failed an exam because you stayed up all night cramming instead of allowing your studied material to “sink in” with sleep, you know firsthand that hitting the hay can improve your chances of remembering things you’ve learned. However, these benefits can also apply to your pets! A recent sleep study performed by the Hungarian Academy of Sciences found that dogs who had a good night’s sleep after a day of learning tricks were able to respond to commands with greater accuracy the next morning. If you’re training your dog, investing in a new bed or mattress can help make the learning process easier!
- Decreased stress and pain. Restorative sleep plays a crucial role in helping pets recover from traumatic injuries and lessens the pain associated with arthritis and joint damage as a result of age. Veterinary researcher Dr. Karen Becker recommends that those looking to help improve their pets’ healing process invest in the tools that they need to give their furry friends a better night sleep.
- A strengthened immune system. If you want to spend less in veterinary visits, the secret might be a better night’s sleep for your pet! A new study published in the American Veterinary Medical Association found that dogs, just like humans, released melatonin, an important hormone that helps strengthen cells in the immune system.
