Women sleep better next to dogs than men>
Study shows women get better sleep when they sleep with dogs other than men.
This is according to Dr Christy.L.Hoffman, a professor in the Animal Behaviour, Ecology, and Conservation department at Canisius College in Buffalo, New York, and her team of researchers.
They surveyed 962 adult women in the US and found that on average, women who slept with their dog or dogs reported better sleep, as opposed to women who sleep with a man. They also found that women who share a bed with both a dog and a man found their dog to be less disruptive, while also providing a greater sense of security and comfort.
Speaking to Broadly, she said the “keyword here is perception, this [study is based on] individuals self-reporting how they feel their sleep is affected and it’s important to note that this is based on aggregated data and an average of responses, so getting a dog won’t solve everyone’s sleep problems.”
