Yes, dogs can sleepwalk, although it is not as complex as those found in humans. Some pet owners and experts think it is due to dreaming, seizures, or even a trance and not sleepwalking.

Yes, many dogs are not fond of getting a good scrub. Once it’s finished, there’s nothing in this world that can make them happier than running around and getting crazy. It’s like shouting for joy, except that our dogs do it differently, and running around like crazy is pretty normal for them.
