We totally have to rephrase the popular saying and belief of a dog being ‘Man’s best friend’.

Studies have proven that woman actually sleep better next to dog/s than next to men!
Woman sleeping near or with their dog/s reported to have higher levels of endorphins. This is simply due to the cuddly warm comfort of close contact. This encourages healthier sleeping patterns and can extend your snooze time. Dogs have ten vocal sounds that they can produce. The one low pitched one they emit whilst ‘snoring’, is shown to decrease your cortisol and adrenaline levels, inducing a calm and peaceful sleep.
You also sleep better having a subconscious knowing that you are protected from potential intruders. Dogs swivel their ears like mini radar dishes and can locate a source of sound in 6/100ths of a second, warning us of danger way in advance.
Bed up with a K9 girls!
