Does it seem like your dog is sleeping all the time? It's not just your imagination.
All dogs sleep a lot—and some sleep even more. In fact, depending on the breed, your dog might sleep up to 18 hours a day. Larger breeds sleep more.
On average, though, a dog sleeps half the day away—about 12 hours or so.
Dogs don't sleep the way we do. Instead, they take a lot of short naps. This helps them recharge their energy quickly, so they can be ready to get up and go again.
They sleep so much because that's how they're genetically designed. In fact, you've got to start worrying if your dog isn't sleeping as much as he used to.
Changes in sleeping patterns can indicate a problem—whether that means a health issue or stress.
Well, no need to worry about this pug though… he looks like he's in eternal bliss as he sleeps in a baby stroller!
