There are actually ways your dog can help you sleep better, according to Bustle.

A study published in the journal Mayo Clinic Proceedings found that: “Humans with a single dog in their bedroom maintained good sleep efficiency; however, the dog’s position on/off the bed made a difference. A dog’s presence in the bedroom may not be disruptive to human sleep, as was previously suspected.”

So, if you wake up in the middle of the night shoved to the far corner of the bed with no covers, retraining Fido to be your big or little spoon can actually help you get more restful sleep than banning Fido from the bedroom. In fact, a survey from Just Right By Purina reported that 31 percent of respondents said that their dog is the little spoon while sleeping while another 19 percent said their dog is the big spoon.
