My dogs get insomnia when the house is too warm -- during the summer or when I have the woodstove cranked up quite a bit. But dogs can get insomnia for other reasons too.

If you've ever had a puppy at home, you know all too well the sleepless nights. Puppies constantly keep us up because 1. They miss their mom and littermates 2. They are wide awake and want to play. These are two reasons that any dog might have insomnia, that is, they're upset about something (missing mom) and they're not tired (not enough exercise).

According to James Dalley, D.V.M., associate professor of small animal clinical sciences at Michigan State University College of Veterinary Medicine in East Lansing, dogs can get insomnia because something upsetting has occurred, such as a fight among the owners or other stressful condition. Other reasons is that they haven't gotten enough exercise or there is a change in the weather. I had a German Shepherd who was terrified of thunderstorms and if the air even smelled of them would stay up and quiver in his crate until the storm passed or until it no longer looked like it would rain.

Lastly, if your dog is uncomfortable (arthritis, hip dysplasia) or has a problem like diarrhea or frequent urination, it's unlikely your pup is going to get any sleep. Needless to say, if your dog is keeping you up, it's time for a trip to the veterinarian.

But yes, most dogs seem to have no problem sleeping.

April 06, 2009 04:51 AM | view on twitter Dogs don't typically have the same causes of insomnia that humans do. They don't drink a lot of caffeine, they don't tend to get stressed out, they typically don't take many antibiotics or get very depressed. A lot of the human causes of insomnia don't generally apply here. This is about human insomnia, but you can compare it to dogs and see why it doesn't really apply. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Insomnia#Causes
