If your pet loves to sleep like a starfish, sprawling out on the couch or bed while no space for you, it is a sign that your relationship is all about taking control, or power dynamics. It is your pet’s cute way to tell you that they have the control right now.
This sleep position shows that you have minor issues of taking control on each other. However, it is not a bad behavior; on the contrary, they are just look funny sleeping that way.

For piling-on newborn pups, this behavior reveals that you are like pseudo-father or mother for them. They may yearn close by each other to you just as you have a parent-child relationship.
Cuddling with your pet is just like cuddling with close people to you. Both you and your pet are valuing how you show love to each other; it indicates how much you really care. When your puppy gives you that gentle nudge with their nose, or your kitty rubs up against your leg, it is all about affection.
At bedtime, the cuddle fest is the ultimate way to show how you care and love each other, because, you know, showing love is as important as carrying it.
- In Your Face
If your pet likes to sleep on your head or your face, it indicates that there are some real kinks that need you two to work them out. Your relationship might be imperfect. You may truly love each deeply, but, sometime, you are not on the same wave.
Instead of taking things awkwardly when prying your pet off your face, handle this issue gently to find a comfortable position for both of you. Take it as a chance to ease the tension that you might both have, moreover, it is a way to compromise with your buddy.
This sleeping position reveals that you are real equal partners. Your dog is taking you as a fellow dog, and you are taking your pet as a fellow person. Having such relationship together with your pet just shows how you have great mutual respect.
Your dog really knows that you are responsible for their care, and you are aware of how much love they give you in return through their companionship.
- Foot Warmer
If your pet likes to sleep in the foot warmer position, it shows that your pet is taking your relationship as “your care taker”. It is just an adorable way of your pet showing you that they are not here just here to run the house, but they think that it is their mission to look after you.

Probably, you may feel that your pet is limiting your relationship with your partner. Actually, you can show your pet same level of love while giving your human relationship the required room to breathe.
