A Golden Retriever will sleep between 12-14 hours each night. Your puppy will sleep longer than a Golden Retriever. Dogs need to sleep to be healthy and to allow their puppies to grow.
Golden Retriever Puppy Sleeping Habits
Golden Retrievers sleep differently to humans. Dogs require more sleep to feel rested. This is why they sleep during the day.
Puppies need more sleep than mature and adolescent dogs. A Golden Retriever puppy can sleep for up to 20 hours per day. They need to sleep in order to grow mentally and physically. Your puppy may be tired if they don’t get enough rest. You may notice a lack of concentration, frantic energy bursts or temperament in your puppy.
The Golden Retriever puppies don’t sleep long, and they have many breaks throughout the day. As they grow up, they quickly lose a lot of energy so they must take more breaks throughout the day to replenish this energy and make themselves stronger.
Sleeping Tips for Your Golden Retriever
You can take steps to make sure your Golden sleeps through the night if you are having difficulty getting it to doze off.
Select a sleeping area for your dog
Establishing a safe place for your Golden Retriever puppy to sleep is one of the most important things. You can use a kennel or crate to provide this space. Make sure your puppy is comfortable in this space. Provide blankets and other bedding to make it more comfortable.
Establish a Routine
Establishing a routine with your Golden Retriever will make it easier for them to fall asleep. Dogs love routines and will be more relaxed if they know when their bedtime is. You will also find them more likely to go to bed at the same time every night. You can also establish a routine for your dog’s daily life, such as walking or feeding them at the same times every day.
