Puppies are like babies. They need alot of sleep. Puppies grow much more rapidly then babies do so they will sleep a ton! They also need alot of food and water. let the puppy sleep, if the dog is lethargic, and has no appetite then you need to get it to the vet, there could be something else going on.

Although every puppy is different, most young puppies will sleep for nearly two thirds of the day, or 16 hours. As they get older, their sleep demands will decrease.
