    Do animals dream?

    smile  Just out of observation of my own pets while they sleep I would say, that yes, they do dream.  It's quite humorous to watch a dog run and whine and growl in their sleep.

    By watching my dog, then, yes, they must.  She kicks her legs, growls and makes funny noises.  It is quite funny!

    Dogs and cats certainly do so. Dogs sometimes bark and growl in their sleep, and, like cats, twitch their noses and paws. Evidently they are dreaming of a chase or fight. So one may conclude that other animals dream as well.

    Yes. Especially dogs.

    You can usually tell when their paws twitch - that's usually the sign of a good dream and you shouldn't wake them.

    Yes Yes Yes! I have a dog that moves her legs like she is running and running. She seems out of breath after a few minutes. I know she is chasing rabbits.

    Yes. When I was young, I had a pet dog. I noticed that when he sleeps, he would whinned or growled in his sleep. His nose twitched and legs kicked too. Guess that some other dogs were chasing after him!

      Or maybe he was chasing a car!
