Not everyone got the memo it was nap time!
😴 How much should my puppy SLEEP during the day? Puppies need A LOT of rest, 4-12 hours during the DAY. Each puppy's energy level is different.
Some require more or less sleep, but the general rule is 1 hour of training and play = 2 hours of rest. They are growing at an incredible rate, burning vast amounts of energy.
If they have too much play and awake time, their bodies produce adrenalin forcing them to stay awake. This causes restlessness and an inability to settle down. This not only results in a mild developmental stunt but produces obnoxious behavior too.
