My human son had Night Terrors for years--I didn't get to sleep through the night for 5 years. They are awful to see and wait out. For human Night Terrors the doctors (and research) told me to not touch him (that can prolong the process of their shifting between levels of sleep, and seemed to make t worse for him,) but just wait it out and make sure he didn't get hurt. For human Night Terrors it is a physiological problem with them shifting between sleep cycles, part of the brain trying to wake up, and part trying to go deeper. My son never did remember any of it. I wonder if dogs can do the same?
