- Dogs, like humans, will dream and think of events that are simllar to their days’ experiences
- Beacause dogs are attached to their owners, they’re more likely to dream of them
- When a sleeping dog moves its legs, it’s most liekly becasue they’re running in their dreams
- Cats are more likely to be dreaming of chasing mice, not their owners
Dr Deirdre Barrett, a clinical and evolutionary psychologist at Harvard Medical School, told People that dogs are likely to dream about what happened to them during the day – much like humans.
‘Since dogs are generally extremely attached to their human owners, it’s likely your dog is dreaming of your face, your smell and of pleasing or annoying you,’ she said.
In contrast, cats are more likely to dream of catching mice, Dr Barrett said.
