I know pups sleep a lot but Molly has been asleep now since about 4.30pm! She woke up just over an hour ago so I took her straight out for a wee. She did that then plopped herself down on my feet and curled up asleep again! I brought her back in and she went straight to her crate and fell asleep again.....she hasn't even had her dinner yet.

Should I wake her to feed her or just leave her. She did have a very busy afternoon as I took her for a ride in the car and we went to school to pick the boys up. The head at their school is lovely and has agreed she can have full access to the school and buildings so it was a bit heavy going for her.

Life is far easier if you have a routine. I feed at a particular time, and if my dogs are asleep it's "Come on girls, dinner time!"

Puppies sleep an amazing amount of the time, that's perfectly normal and nothing to worry about. :) But it gets less as the pup gets older, how much less depends on the dog. Some are couch potatoes and some are perpetual motion machines!!!

Regards, John

i would wake her up, i`m sure she`ll be thankful when she sees all that yummy food out for her!

it`s good you can take her to the school, i carried jake with me everyday and it was good for socialising him with the kids although quite annoying at times being swarmed with them :lol: i still take him on the school run everyday now but we stand outside the gate as there`s so many dogs in there and kids just running riot it`s way too stressful. i think he still expects all the attention he got as a puppy tbh but now the only one who comes to see him is a little girl who seems to know more about dogs than me :lol:

Right, I woke her up, she stuffed her food, went outside, pee and poo, came back in, straight in the crate and now she's snoring again!

Can't believe it 8O I know you said they sleep a lot John but my goodness I would never have imagined this LOL. Is it because I've done too much with her today? We did some training this morning too - a couple of five minute bursts but is that too much for her with school runs as well? I don't want to burn her out :? How old was Jake Leah when you took him to school?

I reckon pups are like babies :lol: Make the most of the time she is sleeping :lol: before long she will be hoolying around and you will be wishing she WAS asleep.

Yes it is a very quiet time here, 3 black ones snoozing on the sofa and the Ginger one on MY chair 8O :lol: :lol:

I find the rattle of food dishes is enough to waken ANY pup/dog here!!

She`s had a tiring day, if you`ve read through the many many threads here you `ll find that they tell training is more tiring to a dog than actually walking, thats because they have to use their brains so its mental tiredess.

That coupled with all the excitement of being in the school and no doubt being fussed from every quarter will have tired her, be aware though that she may well e wide awake during the night :lol:

I remember posting on here when Alfie was just a pup in arms about the length of time he slept and how little he ate....OMG within a few weeks of him being home he was a hooligan and needed put in his crate during the day to calm him down.
Enjoy the sleepy phase as when they awake there batteries just don;t turn off for a good few months. And now Alfie is total couch potato walk and food is all that moves him, not even the door opening moved him now...lmao
