What dogs do in their free time – wait, most domesticated dogs have nothing but free time! Anyway, an adult dog will sleep about 12 to 14 hours a day.
There are other things that affect the amount of time they rest, like their breed, age, and activity level. Older dogs, obviously need more sleep than younger dogs. So, that leaves about 12 hours of time each day that the dog is awake. They need things to do to keep them from getting into trouble.
The golden retriever in this video has some great parents! They gave him a swimming pool and filled it with water. Unfortunately, the dog seems to think there is too much water in the pool and is trying to paw it out! Either that or he doesn’t want to get all wet, so he is just dipping one paw in at a time to try and cool off!
