Jack puppy sleeps a lot NEW
by: Jane

Yes, this is very common and nothing to be concerned about. In fact, puppies sleep from 18-20 hours a day (versus the 14 that adult dogs do). Puppies (like babies) sleep some much because it takes a lot of energy for them to grow and develop.
Congrats on your first puppy. She's lucky to have such a concerned owner! I'm sure you two will have lots of fun together, Jacks are the best!
