The Benefits of Sleeping with Your Pet

Health Benefits to Sleeping with your Pet

It’s late and time for bed, or maybe it’s cold and windy, and you are just winding down the evening with a good movie or TV show.  Your faithful companion, your beloved dog or cat, settles in for the night, finding comfort as you do in your wallbed from Wallbeds “n” More.

You find relief in your faithful companion, who seems to enjoy your Murphy Bed as much as you do. But are there true benefits to sleeping with your pet outside of the companionship you both crave?

You bet there is, and Wallbeds “n” More wouldn’t want your dog or cat to have to sleep on the floor.  We want them snug and tight with you while you slumber, and here’s a few reasons why.

Justification for Sleeping with your Dog or Cat

 Pets help you sleep better: According to an article from Today, sleeping with a pet in your bed actually gives you a sense of security. Contrary to beliefs that claim pets disrupt your slumber, this study offers advice to suggest that sleeping with your pet is healthy and provides peace of mind.

Sleeping with Pets Brings Comfort: Respondents in the Today article claimed they felt a sense of ease and comfort when their dog or cat slept with them.  Some actually reported feeling a sense of coziness and warmth when their animal slept next to them.

Pets Help Ease Anxiety: People who tend to feel anxious or overwhelmed can find solace in sleeping with their pet.  Pets cause some people to feel more relaxed, rested, and less anxious.

Pets Lower Stress and Blood Pressure: A study by the Sleep Judge proved that when people petted animals, their blood pressure dropped and alleviated symptoms of stress.

 Sleeping with Pets Eases Symptoms of Depression: Depression can lead to loneliness, and having a fur baby next to you in your wallbed alleviates those feelings.  Pets give you structure and routine, and when your pet needs to get up, eat, and exercise, it gives you reason to get out of bed after your good night’s sleep.

 Pets Beat Insomnia: When people suffer from anxiety or worry, a pet’s touch or the sound of their breath can help soothe a person and help them sleep.

The Results are In

 With proof to back your desire to sleep with your pet, there is no reason to feel guilty! Sleeping with your pets in your bed can improve your health.

What Happy Customers Say

  • I have had the pleasure of doing business at the Costa Mesa Wallbeds and More on two separate occasions. I was invited to visit the store by appointment which assured me Roger’s full attention and respect for my time. I was able to ask questions and see a demonstration of how to open and close the beds. We discussed what I could expect from the delivery and installation personnel. Roger was outgoing and helpful in every way. The pieces I bought are comfortable, attractive, and a great solution to space issues.

  • Everyone LOVES my Murphy bed (Wall bed) and desk set I got from Wallbeds n More, and so do I. It makes for a perfect guest room/office set up, allowing for a multi-use room. I worked with Judy who is a fabulous designer and so helpful.

  • We were so happy to find a wall bed place so close to home – from the moment I called to ask questions to the time we went and looked and bought the staff and everyone involved was wonderful. The time it took to get it and the delivery and set up was wonderful. I would do it again.
