Tennis Balls and Dogs

Tennis Balls and Dogs
Since being told I sleep a lot on my back, I'm going to take an old t-shirt and duct tape a tennis ball on the back.

My concern, though, is I have two dogs who looooove tennis balls.

Anyone else who has tried this trick, how did your dog react? Any notice it? I can see me waking up with one of them tugging on it.

you can hide the ball in a bum bag, don,t need any designer label bag, just any old bag will do the job Coffee

I've considered that, too. Due to other issues, I don't think a backpack would work.

You could put a couple of balls in an old sock and fasten that to your back. Perhaps they won't notice that there's a tennis ball in there.

I did clean out my sock drawer and have some odd ones left over. I could do that, yes! Good idea!

Have you ever tried to fool a dog's sense of smell?

Paula, my question is if your comfortable sleeping on your back why not? Our CPAP's should compensate for it, I just think you may be uncomfortable trying to sleep in a different position and you want to get as much uninterupted sleep as possible, but go for it.

The problem with sleeping on my back is my AHI is higher on the nights that I do. If I wake up on my back, I already know the AHI is going to be higher than my norm. Granted, still less than 5, but every little point helps!
