sleepy time

Here at our rescue puppies are out to play for an hour then put down for a nap. One they sleep for around 90 minutes they are out to play for another hour. As the puppy ages he or she gets out for longer and nap less. If the puppy plays for unlimited time it will sleep long due to exhaust. We tell adopters to think of the puppy as taking home a baby for the first time. Treat the puppy as you would a new born. After all that is what you have.
