    Default How long do your dogs/puppies sleep @ night?

    Wesley has been fantastic about this. I am seriously amazed. He sleeps from about 9-9:30pm to about 7-7:30am. That's almost 10 hours most times! I love it!

    Will he keep this up? Do they sleep longer at night as pups, then grow out of it? He also gets several naps throughout the day. And when he's not napping, he's always engaged in playtime with us. Maybe we just poop him out by the end of the day!

    This is one area I am very fortunate in!! My guys go very happily into their crates at 9:00. In fact, Shelby will put her self into the crate at 9:30 if I haven't already done so They both sleep (or at least are quiet in their crates) until 6:00 or 6:30. That's 9 hours!!

    last night i went to bed around 12:30 and brady slept until 10:30. I even got up once early in the morning to go to the bathroom, and he was happy to just go back to sleep with me. my boyfriends brother has been staying with us, and he's home most of the day so he'll play with brady, i think that has pooped him out a little because he usually has to stay in his crate all day (i come home most of the time for my lunch for a midday potty break) in the past brady would always be waking us up at 7 if i hadn't already gotten up. he's been doing better about letting me sleep on the days i don't have to work.

    Murphy comes to bed with us, normally about 10 during the week, and sleeps with us until 7 when we let him out
    Its only very, very occasionally that he's up before that, and only if he's desperate to get out

    I'm jealous!!!! No matter what or how late she stays up, Katydid starts barking at 6:am each morning since I brought her home!!! She is now 6 months old. Lots of ENERGY!!!
    Teddy sleeps with me and will stay planted by my side until I want to get up....his little sister is a totally different story!

    Better to light a candle for one lost dog than to curse the darkness of man's indifference. Saving just one dog won't change the world but it surely will change the world for that one dog.

    Mine go to bed when I do.

    Of a morning Izzy always wakes David at 4.30-5.00am whether it's a work day or not. (David normally leaves home at about 4,30). Unless desparate for a wee, he doesn't disturb me and when david worked away, Izzy slept until 9ish.

    Joly doesn't do mornings and unless he knows there was chicken or something in the kitchen last night, he has to be prised out of bed. Sometimes he will lie on his back and close his eyes tight, hoping he can't be seen.

    this isn't Lisa, this is Judy (Zack's mom), who is Lisa's mom, i'm using Lisa's account because my account got de-activated earlier today and i am awaiting instructions for turning it back on. in the meantime...

    i sleep upstairs and Zack sleeps in the living room on the love seat. When i get up in the morning and come downstairs, after 8 to 10 hours, he is in the exact place he was the night before even though he has the run of the downstairs. he doesn't even get up anymore when i come into the room, he waits for me to come to him for cuddling. Then he stretches and gets up and runs for the door and i let him out. He's been like this since i got him when he was 16 weeks old, being quiet all night for such a long period.
