Dogs who sleep with their owners have a stronger bond with them.
A new study has found that this sleeping arrangement sends an important signal.
The study involved 962 adult dog owners.
Participants were asked about their sleeping arrangements with their dogs.
The study found that dogs who slept with their owners had a stronger bond than those who didn't.
The bond was measured by factors such as obedience and anxiety levels.
The study suggests that sleeping with your dog can strengthen your relationship with them.
