We all know how cute it is to find our furry little friends snuggling under the covers. I usually can't resist taking a photo or two. But did you ever stop to wonder why they like to hide and cover themselves?
Pre-domesticated dogs were maternal den animals. Meaning, that the mother dogs would birth and wean their pups, for up to 3 months, in a protected and covered space. Although dogs did not live in dens year-round, they would still seek shelter when they were sick, injured or in need of security. It is believed, that this natural urge for dogs to find comfort in protected spaces, is a lingering “denning” instinct.
Additionally, most small terrier breeds (developed in Great Britain and Ireland) were breed to chase foxes, rabbits and other small animals in holes and tunnels. This burrowing instinct makes terriers (among other breeds) intuitively seek out small, covered spaces to rest and sleep.
Accordingly, it is perfectly natural for your dog to choose to sleep in a cozy, comfy, protected space in your home.
When your dog burrows under the blankets, he is craving the comfort and security of his natural sleep environment.
The KONA CAVE® Snuggle Cave Bed provides the ultimate sleeping space for your dog. It has a cushioned center mattress for extra comfort, soft and structured side cushions to snuggle them and support them when they learn and a cozy and protective cover giving them the security they crave. Our Snuggle Cave Bed is like your dog's natural sleep cave, only much better.
Worried that your pet won't get enough air while under the blanket? Only KONA CAVE's patented design has a back air opening that regulates the temperature inside of the cave and ensures your pet gets enough air while under the covers.
