Sleeping schedule completely changed?

  • Has her feeding schedule/food changed? More exercise/play before she sleeps might help. When Sakura was younger, she would wake up at 5am sharp every morning but I was able to slowly push that to 7:30am by playing fetch or tug of war with her before she goes to sleep (if I am lucky I can trigger the Shiba 500). If she plays with other dogs, I would have to wake her up.
  • Her feeding schedule is the same, and if anything she’s been playing more. Other than her nightly walk, unfortunately she can’t spend as long of a time outside at night as she does in the day because the mosquitos swarm here at night, and for some reason really love my blood(plus I’m alergic to them). So she plays and runs around the house every night, and usually does trigger the shiba 500.
  • Have you tried puzzles and other mentally engaging activities? Training for about 30 minutes is a great way to exhaust Sakura.

  • We played a lot more before bed last night and she ran around a lot outside and woke up around 7 today, so that must have helped. She takes a lot of naps during the day too, could that be another reason she doesn’t sleep overnight much?
