What time does your Golden go to sleep at night in the winter months?

Our Maizie is 16 months old now and our first Golden. It seems she's falling asleep by about 6:30 pm and is out for the night. Just wondering if other goldens go sound asleep this early when the days are shorter during the winter.

Nope...my dogs fall asleep every night at the exact same time year 'round. Lucy is asleep by 8 and Chance is asleep by 8:30 to 9. I usually go to bed between 1 and 2 so I wake Chance up to go potty one last time, but there is no waking up Lucy at all. She's out for the night...

Vinnie usually goes out for the night when ever I put him in his crate. Usually about 10:00. He takes a couple cat naps in the evening.

If Tayla is out of her crate she is perpetual motion. I put her in her crate between 9:30 and 10:00. She may be awake until we go to bed at 10:30 or 11.

Wow, Maizie must have a huge bladder, lol.
I take my boys out around nine in the evening for their last walk, they usually settle down after that. This is regardless of the season.

Ben naps off and on all evening, but he doesn't go to his bed until after our walk at 11:00 and usually not until we go to bed around 1:00. He doesn't wake up until 9:30 or so, most days, sometimes later if we sleep really late.

I must have a really lazy dog...I take Chaya out around 6pm for her last potty, and she pretty much sleeps until the morning. She'll follow us around while we're still up, but falls asleep immediately once she's repositioned. Sometimes if we're being too loud and annoying, she puts herself to sleep for the night in our bedroom! And this is both summer and winter....

My MacKenzie sleeps very hard. I can actually carry her while she is sleeping, and she won't wake up. Now that you mention it she has been falling asleep earlier, maybe before 8:00. She plays very hard during the day too.

Brady is a night owl, and stays up with me.
