My pup sure does sleep alot. She will go through spurts throughout the day where she wants to play for about 20min and then it is back to her bed to sleep. Is she lazy or is this normal?
Michigan is around 3-4 years old and as of late she doesn't want to get out of bed in the morning. It may be a hangover from the winter months when she was happy to go out, pee and then go back inside but I'm told some shorthairs are just lazy. I think I've got one of the lazy ones sometimes.
From what I know puppies can't keep the pace up for too long before they want to rest.
Your puppy is a baby and needs allot of sleep. Puppies tend to sleep, eat, pee and poop, play, and maybe not in that order. The sleeping and playing cycles are pretty normal.
Thanks y'all. She really turned it on this evening right before dark. She hasn't wanted to go to the fields in about a week (she doesn't like rain or wet ground), but she tore it up this evening. There had been some turkeys in the fields earlier today and she went crazy when she got their scent. From that point till' dark, it was off to the races. She was looking for birds everywhere. Too bad we don't have any wild birds or she would have found them. Oh, and she's only 9 1/2 weeks old.
