Why Winter Beds for Strays?

Dec 10, 2023 Annelieke Laninga

Some (senior) residents are getting disturbed by the dogs barking at night. In winters dogs regulate their body temperature by moving around more at night and sometimes barking incessively at intervals. 

Dogs naturally tend to rest/sleep about 14-18 hours per day as scientific research on the activity budget of street dogs has shown. But many feel unsafe, uncomfortable or cold and (old) dogs may be in pain especially in winter.

Sleep deprivation not only makes people more irritable, also our community dogs may become more reactive during the day to triggers which they would otherwise be fine with. 

We don’t want to let them get sleep deprived, bothering people in their night rest, because both people and dogs will suffer in that way.

Sleep is a major factor that can easily be influenced by caregivers and other residents to make coexistence possible. 

By placing boris we try to make sure that our community dogs have a safe and comfortable place to rest and that our residents can also sleep undisturbed.
