    DefaultSleeping with legs back

    Hello!

    Recently, my dog started to sleep with putting his "legs" back. (He lies on his stomach).

    Is that a bad thing? I just think that he "calmed down" after two weeks and this is how he is sleeping relaxed.

    Thanks.

    If it is comfortable for him it must be okay. None of my labs have ever been flexible enough to sleep like that but the pit bulls at the rescue we go to often lie down in that position.

    My lab is obviously mixed with a smaller dog (he has shorter legs than a usual lab). Maybe that's why!

    No it's not a bad thing. It's not a good thing. It's just a thing.

    You're starting to worry too much about things that you don't need to worry about. Relax. You'll get enough opportunities to worry about real problems throughout his lifetime.

    I call it the Frog Dog position. My Flint prefers that position.

    I don't think he's mixed with anything. Most Labs you see are TOO tall. He has a nice head. Measure his height at the top of his shoulder. I bet he's around 21".

    I don't think he's a mix. He looks like a decently bred Lab to me. They're not going to be leggy.
