With a range of treats and chews to be used as part of your dog’s bedtime routine, take a look at why bedtime is so important and what you can do to improve and support your dog’s bedtime routine.
Why is sleep so important?
Play. Eat. Sleep. Repeat.
That’s a dog’s life.
Sleep provides a vital downtime for the body to divert energy into growth. Just like humans, sleep allows your dog’s brain to make sense of the day. This helps the pooch store and remember all those amazing tricks and training they have been learning every day.
With dogs recommended to sleep between 12-14 hours a day, ensuring our dogs have the ideal amount of slumber is an essential part of their daily lives. As playtime, chews and walkies can cause a mass array of excitement, calming our pets down before bedtime can often become a waking nightmare.
Like troublesome toddlers, settling our pets down for bedtime when excited can lead to hours of pacing about and anxiety for our four-legged friends. Adding some natural extras to their diet just before bedtime, can help settle nerves, get your pets feeling cosy and ready for bedtime without any stress or hassle. So with a selection of slumber snacks on offer, here’s our top tricks for getting your dog ready for a cosy night of dreamtime.
