Lewis Moon Posted December 14, 2009 Report Share Posted December 14, 2009 We adopted Cerbie, a 10 week old BC mix a week ago and all seems well; he’s learning to sit, come and stay and is crate trained and well on his way to being house broken. My worry is that he is very laid back and seems to sleep a lot and only becomes the “Ricochet Puppy” a couple times a day. What is the normal sleep/play ratio for a 10w/o? What distance would constitute a “long walk” for him? He walks our daughter to school in the morning and walks her home at night (probably about 1/3 mile round trip each) at “puppy speed” and does some indoor command work in between. Is that too much? We are always really careful to let him dictate when to stop. He is a growing puppy. I have a pic of him from the first night we got him and he really looks like a different, older, bigger dog, in just one week! Do pups tend to sleep a lot during growth spurts like kids? OK, I’m a worrier but I’ve become very attached to this little wiggler. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
