Many dogs love to bury themselves under the covers to sleep and it is curious to think about why they might do this seemingly very human thing. Leroy, the Beagle puppy, loves to play under the covers and tidy the bed sheets before he goes to sleep. He is determined to get the bed just right, no matter how long it takes him to do it! Adorable!
Animals depend on the concept of resources, such as food, water, and shelter. Your bed represents a shelter or den to your dog. Since the bed is a place where the pet regularly nests, it is marked with his scent and it is part of his routine. He instinctively crawls into his den as a happy and safe zone. Under the covers may feel like the inner sanctum of his den to him.
When your dog is tucked away under the sheets he feels surrounded and the sole pressure of the sheets snug around him probably makes his brain release happy chemicals that give your pooch a sense of security and well-being.
Have you ever found your dog sprawled out on the kitchen floor, curled up in a discarded coat or nestled into the back seat of your car?
These are all comfortable places where your dog can sleep. As a pet owner, it is very important to provide your dog with a warm and comfortable bed of her own; a place she can retreat to at night and nap in throughout the day.
All dogs seem to have their quirks and routines because dogs are creatures of habit. Footage shows the entire bedtime routine of this adorable Beagle pooch.
Every night before Leroy goes to sleep he has to do his routine consisted of proper blanket and sheet fluffing which helps him create the perfect nesting spot for him to lie on. Watch as he transforms his owners’ bed into a big Beagle doggie bed. He shuffles, pulls, and digs until his highly-demanding conditions are met. Then, he goes off to dreamland!
