Simply, their body languages have revealed a lot of secrets for us.

We all know that a wagging tail symbolizes joy, and a lowered tail means fear. Actually, the dog’s sleeping position also reflects the vital signatures about their health. Let's make a deep view on these secrets.

Curly Sue Type

A dog is sleeping with the paws hidden under the body and the tail curled. It’s the most common position among the wolves or wild dogs. If your pup is sleeping as Curly Sue, it likely means that they are a bit cold or anxious about something, such as a new person or environment. 

Side-Sleep Type 

Hands down are the most common sleeping position for pups. This position is more relaxing than Curly Sue. When a dog leaves the tummy exposed, it means the pup feels comfortable enough and completely trust the environment. Side sleeper is usually calm and has strong bonds with their families.

Superman Type

A dog is sleeping with all four paws stretched out and the head at ground level. The Superman position is probably one of the cutest. This position is popular in puppies, it’s easy for a dog to wake up and jump right back into playing. Superman symbolizes the active and energetic canine.

Crazy-Leg Type

A dog is sleeping with all four legs pointing upwards. With all four legs in the air, the dog’s stomach and organs are completely exposed. This sleeping position is the sign of independence, super easy and letting their family know that they feel absolutely safe and cozy.

Passed Out Type

The “Passed Out” sleep position is similar to the Crazy Legs. The differences are a dog’s front paws put over their chest and their back legs extended completely in the air. This sleeping position likely means overheat, because their body has many furs, except for their belly, this position is easy to cool off. Besides, if your dog’s paws are curled over their chest, it may be telling you they don’t want to be bothered. Please be cautious if you try to wake them.
