You may have many best friends, but your dog only has one.
Is your best friend suffering from lack of sleep? Sleeplessness in dogs can occur when their daily routines have been disrupted, and usually only results in a mild behavior problem (along with sleeplessness, your dog may experience “accidents,” or show obvious signs of nervousness). Hopefully, this is only temporary. Also, as dogs get older they may have trouble sleeping – just like elderly humans – and an occasional night without sleep is harmless. If your dog has trouble sleeping often, it’s time to examine causes and treatment.
