Sleep is for the Dogs

It’s Labor Day, so it’s a good time to catch up on some sleep. Maybe you can find an unoccupied room where you can sneak away for a nap.

If you need inspiration, you can check out the photos of
these dogs. Visitors to caught their dogs napping everywhere from the shower stall to the flower pot.

Does your dog have a serious case of daytime sleepiness? If so, maybe it’s because of your sleep apnea.

recent post on the Sleep Better Blog by AASM spokesperson Dr. Lisa Shives tells of a patient with severe obstructive sleep apnea. Often his dog would paw at him and wake him up during the night.

But now he is using
CPAP therapy to treat his sleep apnea. The result? He and his wife – and even their dog – are all sleeping better.

Of course, there is one dog that may not be sleeping well today. Bizkit the Sleep Walking Dog would like to remind you that dogs can have sleep problems too.
