Do you believe your dog dreams of chasing squirrels and cheeseburgers? I do! Many dog owners have noticed their dog may quiver, their leg twitches or may even growl while sleeping giving the impression that they are dreaming about something. During sleep the brain wave patterns of dogs are similar to that of people and go through the same stages of electrical activity observed in humans, all of which is consistent with the idea that dogs are dreaming.
Since a dog's brain is complex, it is reasonable to assume that dogs are dreaming. There is also evidence that they dream about common dog activities. Researchers found that a dreaming Pointer may immediately start searching for game and may even go point, a sleeping Springer Spaniel may see an imaginary bird in their dreams, while a dreaming Doberman Pinscher may pick a fight with a dream burglar.
