Disturbing a sleeping dog can cause them to become disoriented and potentially aggressive.
Dogs need a certain amount of uninterrupted sleep to maintain their physical and mental health.
Waking a dog abruptly can cause them to experience a sudden surge of adrenaline, which can be harmful to their health.
Dogs may also experience confusion and disorientation if they are woken up suddenly.
If a dog is sleeping deeply, they may not be able to wake up quickly enough to avoid an accident or injury.
It's important to teach children and other family members to respect a sleeping dog's space and avoid waking them up.
If you need to wake a dog up, do so gently and gradually to avoid startling them.
