Dogs are known to relieve anxiety in humans, as can be proven by dogs that work as service animals for those with severe anxiety disorders. They make it easier for people to go outside and live their lives, but they also make them feel calm and relaxed at night. Sleeping with your dog in the bed can help you sleep better and offer tranquility.

One of the biggest reasons most people get dogs in the first place is to feel safer. Whether you’ve got a fully trained personal protection dog or a dog that will alert you with a bark doesn’t matter. All you need to feel safe is the dog sleeping by your side.
