    If your pooch tends to sleep on the side, it means that they're incredibly comfortable with their surroundings, are secure with themselves, and are in no way high-maintenance. And though your dog may be guarded and alert when awake, she feels blessed to be in your home and company, and has an enormous sense of trust in you. Dogs who sleep in this position tend to be happy-go-lucky and fiercely loyal.

    Dogs that sleep in that position may not be as relaxed since their muscles are still too tense to enable them to drift into the REM stage of sleep. pooches who curl up on their tummies while they sleep, tend to be very gentle but slightly timid and shy.

    Many dogs who sleep indoors opt for this "passed out" position. A dog will lie on its back in order to help themselves cool down as quickly and efficiently as possible. Most of the time, dogs who have expended lots of energy during the day, or who are overheated, will sleep flat on their backs. In addition, really happy, secure, and relaxed dogs will tilt their legs in the air during their sleep. Dogs who sleep in this position are highly confident in themselves, and they also tend to be very adaptable to different and new situations.
