While most people think that cats are the nappers when it comes to our household pets, in actuality, dogs sleep a lot!

Adult dogs sleep between 12-18 hours a day on average. This number can be adjusted due to age (senior dogs and puppies tend to be sleepier) or circumstance (a dog in a shelter may be agitated and sleep a great deal less). Some dogs also sleep when there isn’t anything else to do – it’s likely that is what they’re doing for much of the day while we’re at work!
