View Full Version : Sleeping on their backs?

Do dogs, or even Cavs, enjoy sleeping on their back much? Ours has taken to doing it a lot (sometimes spread-eagle style) since he joined our household as a mere 8-week-old.

Mine love doing it. I think it is a sign that they are really relaxed and 'laid-back' and also feel safe and secure. Sometimes they will also do it if they are very warm :D

Both our cavalier and our golden love to lay on their backs! Your pup is saying I'm at home:lotsaluv:

Our older girl, Rosie, would never adopt so undignified a position, but the new puppy has no such qualms!

Daisy used to do it when she was younger, but now she doesn't unless she has dozed off mid-belly-rub. I'm kind of sad that she doesn't do it anymore because it used to crack me up.

I used to wonder if it was only Jasper that laid on his back, obviously not, he did it as a puppy and does it even more how he`s older, he has a chair with a blanket on which he sleeps on in the day time and it`s his favourite sleeping position, it reminds of an old man and I love seeing him like it, I have taken a lot of pictures of him like it, shame I am hopeless at posting pictures, anyway I like looking at everyone elses.:)

This has always been my favorite Cavalier pose! A few of our kids since we're all sharing:
And my favorite of Indy as a puppy, the little modest dog:

My lady Cav never sleeps on her back, more of a side sleeper, but my boy showing off his bits for hours on end (well, what's left of them! ;)). He sometimes tenses up his legs so that they are pointing straight up so he lies in the bed back legs spread and front ones up in the air :rolleyes:

I think this is common to all dogs and cats that feel happy, safe and secure in their environment.
