    Default puppy sleeping to much???

    our 14 week old girl Harley has been sleeping more than usual the last few days. she is eating and drinking fine and doesn't act lethargic when she is awake, should we be worried. we are first time bully owners so we worry about everything. Any opinions, how much should she be sleeping at this age?

    Hi Kat, I agree with Phil, it's normal, puppies are like babies and need lots of sleep, they will sleep more when they are going through a growth spurt as well. Puppies can sleep up to 18 hours a day.

    I never really tracked my girls sleep when they were pups but I do recall watching my youngest playing and all of the sudden we would look at her and say what is she doing??? She would literally fall asleep in the middle of playing. It was the cutest thing EVER!

    I truly loved the puppy stage and could barely take my eyes off my adorable little pups...well that hasn't changed much and they are 7 & 11 LOL. Be sure to take lots and lots of pics because they grow up so fast.

    Agree, puppies sleep a lot! But if you feel in your gut that something's not right, you know her better than anyone, trust your instincts if she's not being her usual self. You can also do an exam to check for warning signs something may not be right. Take her temperature, temp should be between 99-101 F, check her gums and make sure they are nice and pink, they should be wet and not tacky. Roll her on her back and she should immediately try to correct herself unless she's a particularly submissive pup.
