It may be cute the first few times your furry friend sleeps on your head. They’re trying to be close to you, and it’s very sweet.

But sometimes, it can become a problem. So why does my puppy sleep on my head?


Your pup sleeps on your head for security and comfort. As the owner, you are the alpha, and they know you will protect them from predators.

They Are Protecting You

Your head is the most vulnerable part of your body, and thus your furry friend will sleep on it to keep you safe.

Your pupper may just be trying to strengthen their bond with you. Cuddling is a way dogs can strengthen bonds with each other, so sleeping on your head is their way of initiating a bonding session.


They’re Cold

Our heads are the warmest parts of our body, and your pup will take advantage of that when it’s cold.
