When Toby was a pup he only slept at night and when I wasn't home. Now that he's older he's mellowed a lot and sleeps much more. He usually plays for an hour, then sleeps for two.

My pack go to bed at 10pm and wake up at 4am. During the day they have nap
time around 10am for about 2 hours, and around 3pm, for approximately 1 hour.
So that's around 3 hours of napping during the day, and a 6 hour sleep at night.
They lead busy doggie lives, not too much time for sleep.

I've been told your dogs get use to your sleep schedule. Almost like they are "trained" to sleep when you do. My suggestion is that you get your baby a chi friend! Mine always play together! Before koda would sleep often too. But now they are always having so much fun with their toys. Attachment 8910Attachment 8911

I think that Odie has become too used to having cats as siblings. If she's not eating, playing or out on a walk or running, she's sleeping or cuddled up in a blanket. She sleeps A LOT.

I am getting puppy fever. Timmy was go go all the time, no down time. I never seen him sleep, always on the go.

When he turned 3, he changed and the puppy was gone. Now he sleeps a lot.
I miss his puppy days. Even though he drove me a little bit crazy, he was so much fun.
I guess it really happens when they mature, some mature earlier. And most just love to sleep.
When I go to work, it is a blessing knowing he will just sleep while I am away.

I really want to get him a playmate, but my mother has a little five month girl, and he is really not too thrilled with her.

She jumps on him and scratches his eyes, he puts up with it,, but she is on all the time and it becomes too much for him.

Don't worry about him sleeping a lot. They really adjust to your schedule.
