- October isNational Pet Wellness Month
From now through the end of October, the Slumber Yard will be focusing on doggos and their different sleeping habits. Not only do we dive deep into research about dogs and sleep, but we also go on the hunt for the best, coziest dog beds (with the help of some volunteers). Our end goal is to bring awareness to the importance of sleep for canines, and support an organization who cares about a pooch’s well-being just as much as we do.
- AndWe’re Giving Back
October may be the spookiest month of the year, but it’s also National Pet Wellness Month and Adopt a Shelter Dog Month. Unfortunately, most shelter dogs only receive about 11 hours of sleep a day due to stress — 1-3 hours less than your typical household pup. That’s why we’re donating 50% of proceeds from all dog bed sales to the Humane Society of Charlotte and the Conway Area Humane Society, organizations who help make a positive impact in the lives and sleep quality of anxious shelter dogs!
1 in 4 adults would rather sleep with their dog than their significant other.
