Many dogs love to bury themselves under the covers to sleep and it is curious to think about why they might do this seemingly very human thing. Leroy, the Beagle puppy, loves to play under the covers and tidy the bed sheets before he goes to sleep. He is determined to get the bed just right, no matter how long it takes him to do it! Adorable! Animals depend on the concept of resources, such as food, water, and shelter.
Your bed represents a shelter or den to your dog. Since the bed is a place where the pet regularly nests, it is marked with his scent and it is part of his routine. He instinctively crawls into his den as a happy and safe zone. Under the covers may feel like the inner sanctum of his den to him. When your dog is tucked away under the sheets he feels surrounded and the sole pressure of the sheets snug around him probably makes his brain release happy chemicals that give your pooch a sense of security and well-being.
All of our dogs seem to have their quirks and routines. Whether not eating their dinner unless it’s in a specific bowl or not walking down a hallway unless they do so backward, one thing is for certain: dogs truly are creatures of habit. And a Beagle named Leroy has a bedtime routine that’ll have you in stitches! Mom and dad recorded it for all to see, and we’re so glad that they did! Every night before he can go to sleep, Leroy has to do his thing. And his thing is a proper fluffing of the blankets and sheets for a good minute and a half before creating the perfect nesting spot.
Mom and dad can do nothing but watch and wait as their bed is transformed into a big Beagle doggie bed. He shuffles, pulls, and digs until the conditions are just right. And then it’s off to dreamland!Have you ever seen anything like this? Does your dog have any funny routines? Let us know in the comments after watching the video in full below.
