How to make sure your Belgian Malinois puppy gets enough sleep?

Although Belgian Malinois puppies have little energy, they usually sleep 18-20 hours a day. One minute, your dog may be a small tornado, the next minute he’s asleep, almost in the middle. Sleep is essential for healthy growth and contributes to the essential development of his central nervous system, brain, immune system, and muscles. All this sleep also helps him rest during his growth and development. When dogs are awake, they consume a lot of energy – growing up, experiencing new people and places, learning what they can and can’t do. Because the world is so exciting and exciting, they don’t always notice an internal clock telling them it’s time to rest. You can help by following some simple guidelines on daytime naps and nighttime bedtime.


Tips to help Belgian Malinova dogs sleep during the day

Don’t disturb your Belgian Malinois. It’s hard to resist hugging him and letting him fall asleep on your lap, but you don’t want him to depend on you to fall asleep. Family members, including children, should learn to let your dog sleep alone. But pay attention to him, because when he wakes up, he needs to take him out.
Tell your Belgian Malinova where to sleep. If he looks sleepy, encourage him to take a nap in a safe place: a crate, a dog bed, or a quiet place, and he can take a nap undisturbed. He may need time to understand the idea, but eventually, he will recognize that place as a place to sleep.
Follow the plan. Plan a day for Belgian Malinois dogs. This active time is followed by a quiet sleep time. He is likely to be ready to take a nap during playtime or after a walk. Your dog may nap once an hour, from 30 minutes to 2 hours. All this sleep is normal. Identify overworked behaviors. No matter how much fun you have, don’t let the Belgian Malinoisir get too tired. Too much stimulation and exhaustion can lead to unfortunate behavior. Guide him to his crate or sleeping place and encourage him to relax.

Tips to help your Belgian Malinova dog sleep at night

You don’t want to buy an expensive dog bed for the new Belgian Malinois, as it is likely to gnaw it. Lay one or two soft, felt, cheap blankets at the bottom of the crate. Watch out for blankets or mats. They can get bitten into long cords and suffocate. If you can, bring home a soft toy or baby blanket that smells like a mother dog and put them in a crate. Many owners keep the dog’s cage in the bedroom so he can feel his family nearby.
Develop bedtime habits in Belgian Malinois dogs. Give him a routine from the beginning. You’ll teach him that the night is for sleeping, and both of you will sleep better. Limit food and water intake to puppies a few hours before bedtime. Play with him, hug him, take him out and relax.

You should keep the sleeping area of the Belgian Malinova quiet and dark. If you’re watching TV in bed, turn down the volume and turn down the light. If the room has early morning sunlight, you can even use shading curtains. Silence and darkness will suggest that it is time for him to go to bed. If your crate is barbed wire, you can put a lid on it to make it darker and more like a cave.
First, make sure your Belgian Malinoisir has access to the toilet and does a lot of physical and mental exercise during the day. Teach him how to like entering his box by rewarding him with a treat. When he is studying daily life, be prepared to accept some whining, barking, or howling before he settles down for the night.
Be prepared to be interrupted. Like human babies, Belgian Malinois are sometimes not ready to sleep all night. Your Belgian Malinova may need to pee at night. If he sleeps in a crate in your bedroom, you can react if he needs to go out. When he quietly put him in the box to sleep, he would quietly put him back in the cage.
