    Default How long should Puppies sleep

    Hi all,

    Bongo is now 12 weeks old and sleeps a lot what is normal for puppies in your experience? I would say Bongo probably sleeps 16 to 18 hours a day will this change if so what are you seeing now and through the growth of you Bulldogs?
    Thanks,
    Frank & Bongo

    Every pup is different. Coop and Gracie are almost 8 months and Cooper sleeps WAY more than gracie. SO your pup is fine. I think they may be like kids too....have growth spurts and thats when they sleep more. I notice Cooper does have days he sleeps most the day. Coop just loves his sleep!

    Tubs is 18 months old and he will sleep if I don't engage him in an activity. Some days are longer than others. If he has an active day he will tend to sleep more the next day. Yesterday we went out for an outing and today he has been sleeping most of the day. I think your baby is just fine. I think it is the same with skin babies. I slept all the time as a baby and I was blessed with a little one who took 1-20min nap a day from the time I brought her home form the hospital and fought to go to bed, so I took her naps away at 10 months old to get her to sleep at night (that didn't work either....lol). Some like to sleep (me and Tubs). And others don't (my daughter)! :-)

    Mine sleep most of the day unless something is going on. They will wake up with a some energy on occassion and will grab a toy or run around.
    Please excuse any spelling or grammatical errors... I probably have both bulldogs laying on me or fighting for attention...

    Puppies sleep a ton! Looking back I always laugh & say Penny was storing up her energy! She's anything but lazy now.

    Pretty normal at that rate especially if nothing of interest is going on. I can wake Kain up from dead sleeps to train and do stuff and if I lift him up to sit with him he's snoring with his eyes open very quickly again lol.

    Hi Frank,They say that the average amount of sleep for a puppy around his age is 16 hours a day. I call this "Sleepy Puppy Phase". So it seems Bongo is right on target. In a month or so though, Bongo is going to start getting up more and becoming more lively, so enjoy this sleepy ball of wrinkles now, because soon the honeymoon will be over!

    Zeus is 11 weeks old and he sleeps about 16-18 hours a day. I think that is pretty normal for these babies!

    Probably 16-18 hours a day...less if there is activity going on around them. Banks is 6 and she sleeps about 14-16 hours a day

    Seems about normal to me too ... and then they get all bouncy ... and then they revert back. Maggie's favorite place in the whole world is our bed. She could probably live on our bed ... if we brought her food and water up. Then all she would really need to do is get up to pee and poop occasionally. That would be her idea of bully heaven.

    Daddy is an Olde English and just has a lot more energy .. he's approx 1 1/2 now and I have already started to see more of a slow down. He is gradually becoming more of a couch potato.

    Linus is almost five months and he only has two speeds right now ...... bouncing off the walls or comatose!!
