I'm curious if anyone knows what is a typical amount of sleep for dogs. I know that it will vary depending on the breed, just curiuos. I have a dachshund, so obviously not a high energy dog. He sleeps CONSTANTLY. He will curl up around 11pm at night. He will wake up a few times during the night and maybe play for a few minutes, but unless I wake him up he can EASILY sleep until 3-4pm. Part of this I think is that I'm up until early in the morning and sleep until about the same time. So he wakes up at 3-4pm. We go for a walk, he eats, plays a little bit. Then between 3-4pm and going to bed again at 11pm. He will sleep most of the time. Wherever I am he will curl up at my feet and sleep. Unless i'm laying on the floor, he just sleeps. This seems like far too much sleep, but what is norma? Thanks!
