Here’s everything you need to know about how much sleep your pup needs, and everything you can do to facilitate a healthy sleep schedule for your furry friend.
– 8-Week-ld Puppies: 14 to 18 hours – 3-Month-Old Puppies: 12 to 14 hours – 6-Month-Old Puppies: 10 to 12 hours – 9-Month-Old Puppies: 8 to 10 hours – 1-Year-Old Puppies: 6 to 8 hours
Puppies are not able to sleep through the night like adult dogs. This is because they need to wake up frequently to urinate and defecate.
- Make Sure Your Puppy has a Comfortable Sleep Environment - Allow Your Puppy to Hydrate Before Bed - Allowing for Potty Breaks
