Pitbull puppies and puppies of all dog breeds tend to sleep much more than a typical matured dog. They are exhausted from separating from their family, adapting to a new environment and are quickly exhausted. If your Pitbull puppy is often sleeping, do not worry about it, and it is entirely normal.
How many hours a day should a Pit Bull sleep?
It’s true that most dogs need more than 8 hours of sleep. An adult human averages at about 7 to 9 hours of sleep whereas most dogs will need as much sleep as human toddlers, 10 to 13 hours everyday. The average can change from breed to breed but most adult dogs will sleep anywhere between 8 to 13.5 hours a day.
Why is my Pit Bull puppy so lazy?
It may sound unusual, but dogs can get lazy when they’re not getting their daily dose of physical activity. As mentioned earlier, a lack of exercise can cause issues such as behavioral problems and health issues.
Why do pit bulls sleep on you?
Your dog is bonding and showing that they want to get close to you or their furry siblings. A dog sleeping this way feels very loving and affectionate, and they’re completely comfortable with whoever they’re napping with.
Are some puppies naturally calm?
It’s important to remember that every dog will be different. Some puppies are calm, laid back and easy going from the get-go and tend to just be lower-energy dogs. Other dogs may seem to never grow out of the puppy stage and may need frequent attention and physical exercise well into their senior years.
