Is he sleeping too much?

Rosco is 3 months 3 weeks old now. I've been noticing how much he sleeps. Sometimes he'll have 4 hour naps at once! Then I'll take him out to pee and we'll come back in and he'll chew a few toys and have a short obedience class and then it's back to bed for him. I think he's sleeping way more than he's actually awake.
Mind you he hasn't been getting a full nights rest either.

Love your dogs forever

Some puppies sleep more than others, so hard to say.

What does your breeder say? How are the rest of the puppies in the litter?

And clearly, if you are really concerned you need to get to the vet with your concerns.

my guy naps for an 90 minutes at most, with probably 3-5 naps through the day. he gets a full nights sleep although he does wake up and chew bones for short stretches. def talk to your vet and listen to the experienced owners on this website about your concerns.
