Why does my chihuahua sleep so much?

He's going to be 2 yrs old in October and he's always sleeping... We let him run around the farm for 2 hours in the morning to get exercise but that's about it besides letting him outside. He sleeps all night when I go to bed (usually between 11 pm through 5 am), and only wakes up at around 3 am when I get up to feed livestock. Is he not sleeping enough at night or what?

Some dogs do sleep a lot. if they have nothing to do, then they may just decide to take a nap since they are bored. I have a 13 year old that is always sleeping. He has been this way most of his life. But if we would get the leashes out to go for a walk, he would get up and be ready in no time. You just may want to find more thigns for the dog to do during the day.
