Lhasa Apso Q&A

My 5 year old yorkie sleeps all the time. I'd say he's asleep more then he's awake...is this normal behavior?

Only if he is very young if he is not really young, then it is not normal behavior. if he is older than about 9 to 10 months old, he should be very very hyper.


Well, I know of some dogs that are like that. I don't think it's really that bad. YOu just need to get him to play more. IF he has a favorite toy, let that keep him company. Pretty soon, he should be a little bit more hyper. But, i havee to say, don't make it so that your dog is all ove the place. That would be too big of a change.


Did you recently change your schedule. I am a teacher. My dog gets used to sleeping all day and being awake in the afternoon/evenings. When I am out for break, it seems like all he does is sleep but that's because it's usually his down time. Then, I go out more in the evenings so I don't see him during his awake times. It takes a little while then he adjusts to my new schedule. It may not be him sleeping more, it may just be you are home when you're usually not.
