Dog sleep needs

  • 12-14 Hours per day depending on size and breed
  • Larger breeds sleep more than smaller breeds
  • Puppies sleep up to 20 hours per day
  • Dogs also experience a sleep cycle just like humans, beginning with slow wave light sleep and ending with REM sleep. However, they enter REM sleep much sooner (about 10 minutes after first falling asleep compared to 90 minutes in humans), and they spend only 10 percent of their total sleep time in REM, since their sleep is often interrupted by activity or noise. Humans, on the other hand, spend about 25 percent of their sleep in REM and require about 7 to 7.5 hours of sleep on average per night.
