For those of us who share a bedroom with a furry friend or two, it’s not necessarily a strange sight to see them burrow under their (or our) bedcovers at night. But why do dogs tunnel under blankets, and is this behavior safe?
Certain breeds of dog are more inclined toward creating little warrens in their bedding, and in general, such denning is not detrimental to their health. But some blanket options are safer than others, and dogs of certain ages and breeds need to be more closely monitored when they hunker down this way. With just a little know-how about dogs’ burrowing behavior, we can rest more easily alongside our comforter-covered canines.
