My crew are all pretty big sleepers. Couch potatoes. They go thru spurts of playing/running/chasing throughout the day, but for the most part they are pretty lazy.
Heidi is 4 months old now, and she seems to be awake more than the adults. She will be awake for a couple hours, then sleep for a couple hours. I don't know that I could really put a "time" on exactly how much they sleep.
They are def more awake/playfull in the evening when everyone is home from work/school than they are during the day~~
Hope this helps!

I agree with Katie, based off of Kubrick alone, of course. He is a BIG sleeper. He usually sleeps probably 18 hours of the day, depending on the day. He does like to run around and play, but when we're done he will usually curl up and sleep before getting up to run around again.

Good to know. I thought I might not be "stimulating" Posh enough. Yes, I've been boring here and there. Yikes!

Very cute, Katie!~ I can say that my guys did sleep a lot more when they were puppies, then less from 4 months to a year, and then I find that after 1 year, they sleep a little more.

Really??? I wonder if something is wrong with Ollie? He seems to never sleep. He lays down, but even in the night if I wake up and look at him, he is usually awake. He may be being quiet, but he's definately awake. During the day he is most always 'busy'. Sometimes he gets sleepy in the evening for 30 minutes or so, then he gets busy again! Wonder what's up with that.

Isn't Ollie a only dog. Me, Katie and Laurie have quite a few dogs living under our roofs. Maybe they wear each other out.

Peace, Love & Havanese

Nope, I have a chihuahua, Ruby, too. Ollie is in love with her. They play too, several times each day they'll get in a little RLH. She doesn't play as much as he does, though, so probably doesn't wear him out like your beautiful babies do.

Here is the sleep routine for my furbabies:

10pm- 6am
9:30am- 12 pm.
3 pm- 5pm.
AND
relax, doze off any time they are tired of playing...the playing is constantly chasing each other up and down the stairs. I bet they get exhausted fast! They are ing right now after a big round of chasing, fetch the ball and RLH.

Best, Poornima
