How much sleep is normal for a grown dog?

Spud seems to sleep a whole lot...basically if he's not on a walk, chewing a bone/kong, or eating then he's sleeping. I'd guess he spends about 16-18hrs a day alseep or just lying around, and he isn't crated anymore. I think it may be because he ain't too bright and when I'm not entertaining him he can't think of anything else to do...but for a dog estimated to be 16 months it seems like a lot of sleep. I was wondering if he's older than guessed. He is active on walks and hikes but he never gets 'zoomies' or acts even remotely hyper. My ten year old cat spends less time sleeping than him...
