Dogs as bed partners

Bedmaker Sleepyhead has released the results of New Zealand’s largest sleep survey.  The survey aimed to assess the sleeping habits of New Zealanders, primarily to make the connection between bedding and quality sleep.

The survey found that 60% of New Zealanders share their bed with a partner every night, 12% of us share our beds with our dogs or cats.

So, if you sleep with your dog – you are not alone!

(One of the benefits not mentioned in the survey is that your dog is an excellent bed warmer on cold winter nights.  Whereas a hot water bottle or wheat bag will cool down overnight, your warm and furry dog maintains your bed at a constant temperature.)
