    Default Bedtime?

    Belle sleeps with us in our bed every night. She's curls up in her spot and doesn't budge the entire night. We've noticed that she tends to put herself to bed promptly at 8:00 and she hates getting up before 7:00. Last night at 8:30 we noticed she wasn't in the living room so I checked our bed, and sure enough she was sound asleep under the covers Apparently she needs her beauty sleep LOL. This morning we got her up at 6:30 (to see the kids get their Easter bunny stuff) and she was NOT happy. She grumbled and parked herself in front of the heater. Are all bulldogs this serious about bedtime and sleep?? I've never had a dog that put herself to bed

    Harlea gets grumpy if it is much later than 9pm when she goes to bed and if she gets up much later than 530 am as it interferes with her morning nap and throws off her routine.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    what a great picture!

    yes, Nitschke and Banks both had strict bedtime in their head and would let me know if I was late going up .... I'll let you know if Lambeau develops it, he is currently 5 mths and just goes with the flow for know

    Lola and Floyd go to their beds at 9pm but they sleep on the couch from 7-9 while the family is watching TV. They also need their beauty sleep.

    What a funny picture

    Yes Frank is usually tired around 7pm and he'll sleep with me on my recliner while I read and settle down for the night. When he actually goes to his crate is whenever I'm feeling like he's taken over my chair and I have no room left haha. He's old enough now that he'll sleep though the night, and it's useless trying to wake him up to potty now anyway, he WILL NOT budge! It's funny to hear him grumble and groan.

    Walter is the same… he crashes on the couch w/me to watch TV before bedtime. And of course after our early breakfast he goes to take another snooze… Lol

    Default Re: Bedtime?

    Ruckus has a super comfy dog bed that he'll fall asleep on in the living room. Once he heard me head to the bedroom he jumps up and follows. If it gets too close to 11:30/12 and I haven't gone to bed he'll get up and whine a little and just look towards the bedroom. Once in awhile he'll put himself to bed without me, but he likes to sleep in the same room as his people.
