Keeping an eye on sleep patterns and spotting disruptions
20th May 2021
Dogs like to sleep; on average they can sleep between 10-14 hours a day. The amount of sleep that each dog needs varies from dog to dog, but it is vital for your dog’s health, and either a lack of or too much sleep, could be a sign of a health condition or a disruptive environment. Puppies need up to 18 – 22 hours of sleep while their bodies are still developing, and senior dogs also require more sleep than average.
