According to a new report, women who sleep next to their dog, sleep better and feel more secure.

In the survey, female dog owners went to be earlier and woke up earlier than women with cats. When compared with a human sleep partner, dogs didn't disrupt sleep as much, and were associated with feelings of comfort and security. For the record, my dog has never stolen my covers! Cats, on the other hand, were just as disruptive as humans. Basically, if you sleep with your partner or cat, you'll feel less secure and less rested.

The data was collected from an online study of 962 adult women in the United States. 55% of the women surveyed allowed dog(s) in their bed.
