Romanian rescues have never had a peaceful night's sleep prior to coming to the UK. Even some UK dogs, depending on their previous home may also have experienced disturbed sleeping.
In Romania the dogs are on constant alert - essentially sleeping with one eye open in case another dog, human or other animal tries to attack them in their sleep.
When they arrive at the rescue centre the dogs still struggle with restful sleep. They are around lots of other dogs and there is always something going on. People coming in and out, washing machines and dryers on the go and at points, workmen fixing things in the centre, or training clients with their dogs coming in for sessions.
The first restful night they will ever have will be in the safety of their forever home, and it is important that their family are respectful of this to avoid sleep scare.
