Sleeping Habits of Puppies
Its a good sign that your puppy is healthy when they jerk move around in their sleep. Its when they lie still when they are sleeping that you will need to worry. Puppies only grow while they are sleeping so a good sleep pattern for the puppy is vital. Puppies dream while sleeping and will dream all their life. During sleep the twitching movements help strengthen their legs. The newborn puppy will sleep most of the day only waking when they want to be fed. A normal puppy will sleep most of the time until they are 3 to 4 weeks of age. They will sleep close together for warmth and safety.
