Do you allow your dog to cuddle up with you in bed? If not, you might want to reconsider because new research finds that allowing your dog in your bed may enhance your sleep.

Who doesn’t love to cuddle? Dogs are soft and warm, and it’s relaxing to listen to their rhythmic breathing. Doing so can raise your oxytocin levels, which helps you feel more content. And allowing your best friends to sleep on your bed makes them feel loved, accepted and secure.
