Hi guys

A quick question...

how much does a normal puppy sleep ( labrador male ), 29days old.

I have a 5 month old male golden, and when I got him at 6 weeks old, he used to sleep for almost half the day (but only a couple of hours each time).

He would sleep for a couple hours, play for a bit, pee and/or poop, eats/drinks water if it's time, then sleep again. This cycle more or less repeats half a dozen times during the day (sorry, can't tell you what he does at night :cool: )

Far more than half the day, I'd say.:)

the first week I had my 8 week old lab puppy home she was only awake a total of maybe 4 hours for the first 5 days, I'd even called the vet I was so worried, he laughed and said some dogs just need more sleep, she's now 9 months old, sleeps 7 hours each night and at least 4 during the day off and on

OMG ... now he sleeps the whole day and then tries to jump
on to the bed in the middle of night and expects me to play with him at 4am in the morning ... lol

I can imagine what a good companion he will be once he learns to jump on the bed. And also climb stairs.
