Why do dogs sleep so long?
The importance of taking a nap
Good sleep is important for the development of puppies. That furry ball has a lot to do. Sleep provides an important time off for the body to convert energy into growth. Just like an adult dog, sleep can make the puppy's brain aware of the daytime situation. This helps the puppies store and remember all the important obedience training!
Unlike an adult dog, a puppy's sleep is equivalent to an "on/off" button. Their brains are connected, from a preoccupied game mode to a deep sleep between the blinks.
At the same time, adult dogs have a more gradual wake-up sleep cycle. Even when you sleep, the dog will cycle while awake. They may stand up, check all the places they left, then settle down, severely snoring and re-enter deep sleep.
Do you know that the size of the dog will affect their sleep time? In fact, big dogs sleep much more than puppies. Not surprisingly, young and old people sleep much more than ordinary adult dogs.
