    DefaultHow much does your lab nap?

    Maybe he's growing up or maybe he's just growing. (mind you hes 6 months) But the last few days he's been quite content to lay around. It comes and goes one day he'll be bouncy the next he's complacent. Just curious as to how much nap time your guys get?

    This is where I caught him!

    Mine racks out when I leave for work, and does not appear to move much until I get home. 'Course she does field work before I go to the office, so she is pretty tired when I leave, and does a little more work when I get home. A tired dog is a happy dog and a good dog! ;D

    All day and again after our evening walk/run. He is 6.5 years old now and has perfected napping thankfully.

    He looks comfy!

    For us, someone is home most of the time during the day, so Jonah is usually out of his crate for most of the day. Other than an hour or two in the morning he naps pretty much most of the day. He will usually be napping light enough that when I leave a room he follows me, and then just lays down to nap in whatever room I go to. He usually perks back up around dinner time for a few hours. We do have 3 children who try to get him to play and chase, and if we take him outside, he will happily comply. But in the house, he usually just wants to sleep. Jonah is 4 and 1/2 months.

    Puff and I walk every morning for about 45 minutes in a nature preserve. She's offleash and gets about 30 retrieves (after a training dummy I sling or running back to get it after I've dropped it on the trail).

    Then she dozes until about 2 PM when she gets up and starts licking me (her signal she wants to go out). We go out front, she pees, and I bowl a softball on the sidewalk for her to chase and retrieve about 3-5X. Then she poops.

    Around 6 PM, it's supper time and she reminds me of that with more licks.

    Similar thing at 10 PM as at 2 PM.

    The rest of the time Puff is sleeping and dozing except whenever I change shoes or head for the door -- then she's right at my side wanting to go with me wherever I go.

    Mine sleep on and off throughout the day. If they haven't had enough exercise, they'll annoy me until I do something with them. When they do get enough exercise (or mental stimulation - training, games, etc.) they'll conk out for most of the day. So, they tend to sleep more on weekends as we are more active then. With the long nights and me swamped with my college work during the week, they don't get as much exercise in the winter as they do in the summer.

    I'm sure that on reflection you don't mean annoy Rosie

    Care to adjust
