How many hours a day should my dog sleep?

On average, adult dogs sleep for about 12 to 14 hours per day. However, the actual amount of sleep your dog needs may vary based on factors such as age, breed, health, and activity level. Puppies and senior dogs may require more sleep, while highly active or working breeds may need slightly less. It’s important to provide your dog with a comfortable and quiet place to rest, and to observe their individual sleep patterns to ensure they are getting adequate rest.
