Why Won’t My Dog Sleep Through The Night?

According to research, dogs sleeping in the bedroom is actually good for you and good for them, but for many owners it’s difficult to cope when a dog won’t sleep through the night.

Dogs, just like us, need high quality sleep in order to function, be healthy and happy, so a lack of sleep is not good for them.

If a dog is not sleeping through the night, there are a few issues that could be at play:

1. Are they needing the toilet? If so, is their an underlying medical issue that needs to be looked at by a vet?

2. They are being disturbed by a noise in the home, maybe a timed event such as central heating being turned on or off?

3. Are they experiencing discomfort, if so, what?

4. Are they – now wait for it – being disturbed by you or another human in the home? Some people are prone to loud snoring or sleep talking / shouting, which could in turn be waking the dog up and causing them to be agitated?
