A dog’s rightful place is in his master’s bed

Melbourne, Nov 9 (ANI): An animal expert has revealed that pets are better behaved and less stressed if allowed to sleep with their owners

They are suffering separation distress and should be in bed with their owners, where they rightfully belong, reports News.com.au.

One of Australia’s leading animal behaviorists, Dr Robert Holmes, is happy to court controversy by decreeing dogs demonstrating destructive damage or depression are better behaved when welcomed into the boudoir.

“That’s where they feel secure and safe, and rightfully part of the family pack,” Holmes said.

“A back yard is no place for a dog, it’s not their natural environment. They should be in bed with their owners, that’s where the pack lies and they should all pile in together,” he said.

Holmes said people had wrongly believed for decades that problem dogs were bored pets.

“But we’ve discovered boredom is not the big deal. The problem is an anxiety to be with people and we have seen a dramatic turnaround in treatment success rates by dealing with that issue instead,” he added. (ANI)
