Dog Dreams


1.  There isn’t a way to know what dogs are dreaming about but you can remember your own dreams!  Keep a journal for a week and write down the dreams you’ve had.  Read through them at the end of the week and see if they reflected the things you did that day.

2.  Do you have a dog?  Ask an adult if you can take it for a walk or play with it in the dog park!  You’ll both get some great exercise and give you and your dog some new things to dream about.

3.  Don’t have a dog?  You can make one!  These instructions will help you create the dog of your dreams.

When humans sleep, we dream — but what about dogs? How do we know dogs dream at all?  Do they think about their dreams the next day?  Do they have nightmares or sleep walk?
