I was wondering how much your poodles sleep? Both of my toy poodles sleeps a lot. Is that normal? They sleep about 8-9 hours at night then nap throughout the day. They take 1/2 to 2 hour naps here and there.

My three are about the same as yours. They sleep for around nine or ten hours at night, and since we go to bed late around 2 am, we get up at noon. Laughing

They also take short naps throughout the day if we're home, but if we all go into town and leave them home, they sleep in their kennels while we're gone. Sunny gets a little cranky if he doesn't get his nap every day. So I think it's normal that they sleep a lot. I read somewhere that a dog needs 12 hours of sleep a day!

Sissy is on about the same schedule. I stay up later watching tv, and she is usually laying by me but not really asleep. Then hubby gets her up around 5am to go potty, then she comes back to bed with me til around 8 maybe 9 if Im lucky...lol
She takes tiny naps during the day and likes me to lay down with her, but if you move she is wide awake...

Mine sleep a lot too. And I think that that is pretty normal. I read somewhere that because dogs (and most other animals) walk on four legs, it takes twice as much energy to get around. Which is why they need more sleep, to store more energy.
After reading that and then seeing how much they run around when they are awake, it makes sense to me.

Mine all sleep alot. 10 Hours at night and god knows when I'm at work.
Cats sleep around 18 hours a day. I can't imagin our babies sleeping to much less, unless your home playing with them.

This is an old topic, but I was wondering about something. How long should a dog be safely able to hold their pee at night? I was wondering if they hold for too long, if it causes kidney or bladder problems. Ours are sleeping seven hours before they get up to potty.

I don't think 7 hours is to bad. I'm no vet but mine at night don't go for around 9 hours. I haven't noticed any problems other then them jumping up and down on one leg when I get up. Lol
Not making light of your question but I think that's quite normal.
Sometimes I'm gone 12 hours or more during the day so I have messes to clean up when I get home but I think for that long a time it's pretty normal too.

Thank you, Virangos! I guess that means I can get a little more sleep. We got a new little boy Mini poodle puppy on Ocotber 17th, he turned four months old on the 29th. He sleeps all night in his crate in my room, and potty training is going awesome.

Not much, I think only when we are not home. She dozes from 9pm on and goes to bed between ten and eleven.
