Signs that dogs have a bad dream are much like the signs that dogs are having a bad day. On the bottom line, dogs may appear anxious, distressed, or annoyed.
If a sleeping doggo makes gentle leg paddles and adorable noises of excitement, it probably is having a good time in barkland. However, if a doggo makes piercing whining, crying, or growling noises, they might be having a bad dream.
Now, if there is reason to believe that your fur baby is having a bad dream, it might be best not to disturb them and leave them be. Although you may want to wake and comfort them, your doggo might remain disoriented and lash out as though still in a dream state. As a fur parent, you may want to end your fur baby’s menacing dream immediately. But, put in mind that bad dreams will be gone as soon as they wake up.
By now, you still might be fascinated by the fact that dogs do dream. Whatever they dream about, what is important is as humans, we take care of these adorable furry friends and give them the dreamlike life they deserve!
