pups will sleep for as long as they need to!! i guess it depends on how active they've been when awake to how much they sleep afterwards...

The trend for our 9 weeks old Charlie is, sleep from 10pm-6am then wake for an hour, sleep from 7am-5pm wake for another hour, then sleep from 6-8pm, then wake for another hour, and cycle repeats. so he's up for about 3 hours of the day! I would say 5 the most. But yes, when he is up, he plays like there's no tomorrow.

When I got Jazzy, it had been a really long time since I had a puppy, and I also got concerned that she slept so much. Now I know it's just normal.

She will be a year old next month, and she still sleeps a lot during the day. She will be up and play for an hour or so, then she takes a nap. This cycle repeats all day, so I would say she is probably only awake around 5 hours a day total.

You guys have GOT to be kidding! How did you all end up with Sleepy Chi's and I ended up with a Chi that I must PUT DOWN for a nap and make her sleep :lol: . She is 3 months old and she is awake practically all day. She goes from one thing (playing with my Jack Russell mix until she's pooped out :eek: ) to to another (playing with my daughter's 3 month old Chi until he's pooped out) to taking a small nap and starting all over again. Finally about 10:30 at night she wants to get up in the chair and get serious about sleeping.

And she really isn't hyper if she's not playing with the other dogs. She just goes from one toy or chewy to another.
