Do dogs fall asleep the moment they close their eyes?

or do they do the same thing we do, close our eyes and wait for sleep to come?

    I think that they close their eyes to induce sleep. I know that mine will open their eyes the 2nd I leave the room to follow me no matter how quiet I am!!! :-) Perhap it's like a 'catnap' to them.

    I know I wish I could fall asleep the minute I closed my eyes!! That'd be great!!!!!!

    They do the same as we do. Many times they just lie there with their eyes closed and not sleep.

    my dogs lay around and close thier eyes but are not truely asleep... they jump up to follow me the moment i get up (from the computer chair or the couch... they always are around me no matter where i am... i am followed by a hairy crew of shih tzus...lol

    so to answer your question... no they don't instantly fall asleep... but when they do sometimes they dream (paws move.. rem movement is seen... and bark sometimes) or they can snore...

    I'm pretty sure they are the same as humans, they wait for sleep to come.

    I don't think anyone has ever studied it.

    I do know mine can look and act asleep and yet, when I look closely, their eyes are open.
