The importance of the rest of your pet... > Care of pets.

The rest is as important to us as any other living being of the Earth. And that includes, of course, to our pets. Science has allowed us to know much when it comes to know how rest properly, making that our body gets the attention it deserves when it is erect and active. And the same goes for our pets: have have carried out numerous studies that have helped us to know how to meet their needs for rest according to their movements, the weight of his body or posture used to sleep or relax.
Positions
A dog can rest sitting leaning on their rear buttocks, lying on your sternum or laterally (or even upside down, although it is less common) but on alert, taking a sleep known as slow-wave, or in full REM phase. The last two cases are characterized a position lying on the mattress and with bent legs, eyes closed and regular breathing, and by the feeling that the dog is dreaming (irregular breathing, muscle spasms) respectively.
On the other hand, it is also common to see the animal sleeping curled up, especially in winter, while more heat (or peace of mind) you can espatarrar without any shame. For all of these cases the animal can finish molded to the surface which have more on hand, but must have really comfortable alternatives to provide a correct rest in any case.
Places
It is clear: that we've done things well, we want our furry friend. Why, if we're at home, you will choose to stand near us. Among other things, by their condition of being gregarious. So nothing like having a cushion, bed or similar close to the sofa. But if we are not at home, it is possible that your favorite place to sleep is another. Our task is to find out what and provide a place of rest that fits the characteristics of the place (inner or outer, warmer or cooler...). Influences a handful of factors, from the temperature of the House or being inside or outside it, at the height of the place that decides to move the dog (not for anything Snoopy slept on the roof of your House: from there, the dogs bosom the horizon with greater ease).
Changes in sleep
As it grows, as well as the human being, dog modifies their sleep. Thus, newly born puppies (in its first two weeks of life), they enter and leave a REM phase coming from the third week to alternate with slow wave. And it is that as they mature, dogs need more awake time and less sleep phases. Already by the eight weeks, the rhythms of rest are similar to an adult animal.

Numbers
Making accounts, is well patent the need that our furry buddy will have a good place in that stand: 24 hours, a dog pulls little less than 10 hours sleeping (9,67) in slow-wave and other 3.24 in REM phase. Between this and the other processes of rest that passes along of the day, it is just awake between 44-48% of the same. You have to rest and has to do so in conditions since otherwise you may suffer nervous breakdowns that lead to serious illnesses. Fundamental (and especially in the puppy to its maturity stage) respect its rhythms and provide things for when you want to take a NAP or sleep soundly.
Take care of the rest
As we said at the beginning, science has made that the human being can provide your four-legged companion a steady rest to your own. Few needs are meet with beds and baby cots are non-allergenic, anti-bacterial, anti-mite, termo-reguladoras, anti-stain; with viscoelastic inserts, fabrics and shapes specially adapted for a puppy, an adult and a senior; ergonomic mattresses that is van sinking areas according to the distribution of the weight of the animal's body... and above all, with materials all-terrain: there are beds of interior and exterior, for warm and cold, and especially designed areas for those more unruly animals need to bite all. It has led to a level of detail so high that the best thing to do is to advise is to know exactly what is the best choice for every pet. But of course, the responsibility of human beings goes beyond a successful purchase. It is our duty keep your place of rest in conditions, wiping consciousness regularly, avoiding it to shred it happily and creating a hygienic habitat to its around.
