I just got a new pup and all she wants to do is sleep. She's nine weeks old and I bought her some toys to play with, she'll play for a couple of minutes then she'll go back to bed. It's the middle of the day and she'll rather sleep then get up and run. Do I have a lazy dog or is she just to young???
When I got my puppy she was also 9 weeks old and she slept a lot. I wanted her to play also but I let her sleep because I just figured that she was growing and needed her rest. She will probably begin to play more as she gets older. I don't think you have a lazy dog.
No, all puppies sleep a ton! When I first got my chi, Ace, he would play a bit and then fall right asleep no matter what he was doing. I used to love when he'd sleep! Now he barely does anymore during the day very much! Congrats on your new puppy =-) What kind is she (he)?
Oh, not to worry at all. Your new puppy is getting adjusted to its atmosphere. It took my pup 4 weeks before i saw his true personality. Give it time, you dont have a lazy dog, i thought that same thing. In no time you will be chasing that dog everywhere my friend.......
compare your new puppy to a baby: they both need a lot of sleep because growing takes a lot of energy and sleeping replenishes the energy. Pretty soon your new dog will be full of energy and you wish the pup would settle down for a nap. Certain breeds are also more relaxed than others, that, of course, could be a factor as well.

Well I got her from the pound she is the most adorable thing you have ever seen. They say she is a Curl mix, but I searched for that breed and came up with nothing. So right know I just have a puppy not knowing her breed.
