Like a baby's? Should I be doing stuff to keep him awake so that he can sleep through? I know this sounds ridiculous but it did occur to me when I waved a rope toy in his snoozy face and he jsut rolled his eyes and went to sleep
My nearly 6 month old pup will sleep most of the evening if she's had a pretty active day and will want to play all evening if she's had a quieter day. Neither makes any difference to her night time sleep and she's happy to sleep around 9 hours every night whilst we're tucked up.
We obviously prefer the dozy evening puppy rather than the, 'play with me, play with me' evening puppy . She's currently curled up quietly as the trick or treating earlier was obviously very exciting and appears to have worn her out!
Our pup is 13 weeks and always conks early evening. We don't go to bed until midnight but he is usually asleep on the sofa by 8.
He sleeps through and to be honest usually goes back to sleep in a morning straight after he's been out for a wee. On a weekend he doesn't usually wake up until after half 8. And this morning he happily went back to sleep in his crate at quarter to 7 when dh left for work allowing me a lie in. He sleep in the day still too. A lot!
Mine has always been fairly sleepy from about 8 pm and it never affected his night sleep . However he has never slept much during the day , even when little , I assume he sleeps if I'm out , but if I'm about he's awake !
this is very very comforting to me as I have a 12 week old pup (rescue pup, only arrived on Sunday) who does not want to sleep at night as he howls in his crate on and off all night. Now I know that it is an adjustment period for him - and us - and not because his days/nights are messed up. *fanofthe invisibleman*- how did your pup react to the crate?
He has been fine in it from day one. I was steeling myself for a horrific first night but he was fine, not so much as a whimper when we put him in. I made it all cosy with vetbed and fleece blankets with a blanket on top and he just flopped down and went to sleep.
We've had one night about 5 or 6 nights in where he cried in the night (I think he genuinely needed a wee as he has been dry in there from the off). Other then that he has been fine. I don't over use it in the day, mainly just the school run but he does go in there to sleep of his own accord sometimes.
i want your dog... Max creates at nght. On and off. It is hadr to know what to do for the best as there are differing views on here. I take what I can fro the threads and try and do my best. But I wish he would sleep
My child is a fantastic sleeper too. He slept through from 6 weeks old. I however am a chronic insomniac! We go to bed at midnight and get up at 6am on an average good night. A bad night has me awake till 5.30 with alarm still going off at 6am so don't worry, there is no need to envy me, some higher entity is merely mocking me!
