Dogs can sleep in the weirdest places and sleeping positions making cutest faces.

I don’t know what it is, but watching them sleep is heartening and funny. What amazes me more is when I find them in different sleeping positions. Curled up. Sprawled out. Bundled up. Each of their sleeping positions is quite comical, yet they can reveal a lot about their overall health and personality.

Here are 5 sleeping positions that may tell something about your dog.

1. Curled up in a ball


The curled-up position is one of the most common sleeping positions for dogs. It is mostly adopted by the dogs living in the wild habitat. When dogs curl up in a ball it conserves warmth and protects their vital organs from possible predators. This position, however, limits movement of dogs during sleep. This position is most common during winter months when the weather is frosty or simply a dog may feel comfortable sleeping in that position. Dogs sleeping in this position are considered gentle, easy-going and of sweet personality.

2. Side sleeper


Dogs sleeping in the side position feels quite safe and comfortable with their surroundings leaving its vulnerable organs exposed. This position leaves the dogs limbs to move around during sleep. Dogs sleeping in this position tend to be happy, easy-going, relaxed and loyal.

3. The Superman Pup


This sprawled out position is often seen among dogs who need a frequent nap and play instantly anytime anywhere. These dogs are the most adorable of all kinds. They are super energetic who always wants to be in action even while they are napping. Dogs sleeping in this position are very easily motivated.

4. Back sleeper


This sleeping position is especially shown by the dogs who are very comfortable with their environment leaving most sensitive areas exposed. Sleeping with an exposed belly helps them to cool off from the hot temperature. This position is most common during summer seasons having scorching heat. Dogs sleeping in this position are considered highly confident and very adaptable to any new situations.
