Why do dogs sleep so much as adults?
Is it because they used up all of their energy as puppies?
LOL!!! Dogs just require more sleep to rejuvenate their bodies than humans. The average dog sleeps 14 hours a day, however some sleep more and some sleep less. It's important to know your dog's sleep patterns. That way if they change due to a health issue, you will be able to identify the pattern change and notify your vet.
Since dogs need so much sleep, listen to the old adage and "let sleeping dogs lie."
Actually studies at the University of Nevada Veterinary College have determined that adult dogs only sleep about 25 hours a day, which is quite a bit less than puppies.
I woke my dog up and asked her about your question.
"We can´t switch the CD to our favorite music, surf the internet, or read our favorite book. What else is there to do? Wake me up when it is time to go for a walk."
You know what she is doing now? Take a guess.

My dog had puppies and we went to post them on CL and apparently you can't do it anymore, which really sucks cause now I have to figure out how to sell them. Does anyone even read the paper anymore?

How much does the average dog sleep?My dog sleeps a lot. He is a small dog, a rat terrier to be exact. Does being big or small affect how often your dog sleeps?
