The importance of good sleep for your dog: provide a comfortable dog bed
Just like humans, sleeping for dogs is also very important. A good night's sleep ensures good concentration, for example when catching a ball or retrieving it. A good night's sleep also provides new energy and the ability to learn things and commands more quickly. A dog therefore sleeps a lot. Did your dog sleep badly once? Then you often notice it immediately. He is noticeably irritable or even restless. And does your dog structurally get too little sleep?

How many hours do dogs sleep? Sleep puppy and sleep adult dog
As you have undoubtedly noticed from your own dog(s), your faithful four-legged friend sleeps more often and longer than you do. Most dogs even sleep at least half the day. Pups, older dogs and some dog breeds sleep up to 16 hours or more per day. How long does a puppy sleep? A pup still sleeps a lot: per 24 hours approximately 18 to 20 hours. Compared to an adult dog this is 4 to 6 hours more. An adult dog sleeps on average 12 to 14 hours per 24 hours. Also old dogs sleep more, often about 16 to 18 hours a day. In addition, it is striking that especially the larger dog breeds, such as Sint-Bernards and Newfoundlanders sleep longer than other dogs. Do you want to know if your dog sleeps well? If your dog sleeps a lot, that is a good sign, but also the quality of sleep is very important. A dog can only achieve deep sleep if he can completely relax. A dog that lies with its paws completely stretched out and on its side, relaxes completely. Some dogs even sleep on their backs. That too is a good sign of total relaxation.
