Why do dogs sleep on your head?

Hi

Ollie sometimes sleeps on my head and pushes his head to lay on mine. Why does he do this?

Re: Why do dogs sleep on your head?

I've never had a dog that does that I don't let mine sleep on the beds. Maybe he just likes to be close to you?

Re: Why do dogs sleep on your head?

You're nice and warm!! All of the heat escapes out of your head so thats where cats and dogs gravitate to.

You'd think with all that fur they'd be warm enough.

Re: Why do dogs sleep on your head?

i don`t have a clue but muffin does it. at night she sleeps at the foot of the bed but if you lay down on the bed or the sofa during the day she`ll come and lay on your head lol she`s a nightmare to get off

Re: Why do dogs sleep on your head?

Adam's like this too. He likes to curl up on my chest with his head under my chin or in my ear! He is my most clingy dog though, wonder if that has anytthing to do with it?? I think that way they can make sure you dont leave when they are asleep!!
Hannah prefers to sleep with her head next to yours so anytime you move it illicits a tail wag and a wet tongue in the face..

Re: Why do dogs sleep on your head?

Rupert never does it

He gets quite warm quite easy though, I imagine it would be the heat thing.
