We all know how cute it is to find our furry little friends snuggling under the covers. I usually can't resist taking a photo or two. But did you ever stop to wonder why they like to hide and cover themselves?
Pre-domesticated dogs were maternal den animals. Meaning, that the mother dogs would birth and wean their pups, for up to 3 months, in a protected and covered space. Although dogs did not live in dens year-round, they would still seek shelter when they were sick, injured or in need of security. It is believed, that this natural urge for dogs to find comfort in protected spaces, is a lingering “denning” instinct.
Additionally, most terrier breeds (developed in Great Britain and Ireland) were breed to chase foxes, rabbits and other small animals in holes and tunnels. This burrowing instinct makes terriers (among other breeds) intuitively seek out small, covered spaces to rest and sleep.
Accordingly, it is perfectly natural for your dog to choose to sleep in a cozy, comfy, protected space in your home.
When your dog burrows under the blankets, he is craving the comfort and security of his natural sleep environment. The KONA CAVE® Snuggle Cave Bed provides the ultimate sleeping space for your dog. It has a cushioned center mattress for extra comfort, soft and supportive sides to snuggle him, and a cozy and protective cover giving him the security he craves. Our Snuggle Cave Bed is like your dog's natural sleep cave, only much better.
Does your dog like to sleep under the covers or lie under furniture? He is telling you he wants a KONA CAVE® Snuggle Cave Dog Bed.
No one knows your dog better than you. Observe their sleeping habits, do they like to snuggle under the covers or into blankets and pillows? Do they like to curl up when they sleep? Do they like to stretch out?
If they like to take up lots of room when they sleep, or they twist and turn and move around whilst dreaming the night away, you might want to size up. If your dog likes to sleep curled up, they should have plenty of room in the recommended size bed for their weight. Pay attention to the cave opening height measurement, as particularly tall dogs might like a larger size.
Terrier and hunting breeds are especially happy in small covered spaces. The KONA CAVE® Snuggle Cave Dog Bed fulfills all their natural sleep instincts.
