How much does your Hav sleep every day?

Just wondering if there is a norm for the amount Hav's sleep everyday? Fionn is 16 weeks old. On the days I work from home, he can sleep a lot. Like, almost all day!! We do go on three walks most days (morning, lunch, dinner) for 20 mins or so each and we'll have some play and training time, but other than that, lazzzzzy. He seems to be most active in the evening. I'm just curious to know how much your Hav sleeps and his/her age. I know dogs are big sleepers, but I'm interested to know how Fionn compares to other Havs.

Thanks!
Jan

Cey is lazy like that too, though a lot of it depends on our schedule and what he is used to. When his dog sitter was coming to pick him up twice a week, on those days he would be excited when I would leave for work (she would pick him up from my house a bit later). When she switched the schedule one week and picked him up on a day that he wasn't used to, she said he was lazy and sleepy all day and seemed to want to go home!

Now that we haven't had a sitting situation for him for a few weeks, I think he sleeps pretty much all day when I am not home. He lays down when I go to leave (he knows I am going to work, when I am not going to work he will be right on my heels) and is sleeping when I get home. Luckily, though, I got a great deal on a doggie daycare right down the street and he will be starting there twice a week next week. I am sure he will quickly adjust to running his little heart out on those days, and back to sleeping the rest of them!

Seriously though, even though he loves to go the dog park or do things or meet people, he is also perfectly content to laze around all day with me, even on the weekends. Which is perfect for me

ok, that's good to know and sounds a lot like Fionn. On the weekends, when there is lots of activity, he happily partakes, but during the week he seems equally content to sleep!

My 8.5 week old sleeps all the time, but the 12 week old never slows down unless he is cooling his belly on the tile floor!

8 week old pups tend to sleep a lot anyway - don't be surprised if Leia turns out to be a total firecracker lol

My Molly I think is average, somewhere between twelve to fourteen hours. The younger pups are like babies and sleep more. Weekends Molly will sleep as long as us. Thank God.

Brody sleeps quite a bit. He's in his crate/pen set up a lot at work, although I do let him out in the office a bit. Lately he's so intent on not leaving the floor mat alone that he ends up getting put back in. He mostly naps in there. When I take him out every couple of hours to go to the washroom I'd think he'd be raring to go, but I'll take him outside and he'll sit or lie down in the grass! He's high energy in short bursts and then tires out. When it's nice and I'm able to take him for a walk after work (about 40 minutes) he's usually pooped out for the night. I always think "oh now he'll wake up in the middle of the night wanting to play", but he never does. He's mostly content to laze around. That suits me fine, I didn't want a super high energy dog.
