I guess I've never really worried about it. Mine seem to sleep a lot, and when they're not sleeping, they're playing!

Toji and Chiyo both sleep a lot. Especially since we are working all day and not home to keep them occupied. I have noticed that when we are home and they are more active during the day, after dinner time they both eagerly find a place to sleep. Luckily, they both sleep great during the night. And, they both sleep in the bed with us!emoticon

Mighty Joe is 14 and in the last 6-8 months he now sleeps a LOT more. Unfortunately, he is getting up at 4:30AM! We deal with it though.

I think as long as a dog has some activity in the day, there's no need for worrying. And what each individual dog needs probably varies, just like with humans.

I get about 7 hours sleep and have a friend who HAS to get 9 hours sleep!

On days I stay home and Gibson does not need to be out working he sleeps about 12 hours a day. Gibson is 10 years old.

Twilite sleeps about 9 hours a day and is 5 months old.

Well, I have been worried that April is not stimulated enough and was thinking about getting her a friend because she sleeps too much. But, according to this, evidently not! I didn't know.
