How much are the other 7month-ish doodles here sleeping? Cody is just a big sleeper. He plays pretty had chasing the cats and the boys but he is really sleeping a lot lately. Is it the heat? We're in the mid-90s now. It's 95 today. He's in the house a lot and right now he's sleeping in the living room. He's not sick and when he's a wake he's pretty active. I don't want him to get too lazy. :wink:

Good morning Angela, it is not uncommon for adult dogs to sleep a lot...and older puppies sometimes grow into that pattern too. I wouldn't be too concerned so long as he does show signs of energy and playfulness at times during every day.
I think that the heat can, indeed, make a difference in their energy level. Unless there are other things about his behavior that troubles you, I don't think that a vet visit is immediately necessary, but I would certainly discuss it with the vet if you get a chance. (I often call my vet's office with questions and the vet calls me back with answers.)

Dakota also slows down a lot in the heat. Last week we were in the mid 90s and he had no interest in being outside--just wanted to be inside lazing around! It's now in the mid 70s and he's making up for his laziness by being an all day wacky doodle! :wink:
Diane (and Dakota)
