Human women prefer sleeping with their four-legged friends

Ladies like the four legged furry friends!

Sorry humans – according to a new study, women get a better night's sleep and feel more secure if they have a pet dog in their bed.

The “Journal of the International Society of Anthrozoology” collected data from 962 adult women – and of those, 55% shared the bed with at least one dog, 31% with at least one cat, and 57% with a human partner.

Researchers discovered dogs disrupted their human’s sleep less and were associated with stronger feelings of comfort and security. Cats, on the other hand, were found to be just as disruptive as human partners and were associated with weaker feelings of comfort and security and than both dog and human bed partners.
