Help, I'm tired of being woke at 2am every night, and sleeping on the couch. Randy, My dog was sleeping all night till 7am, but for some reason, he's been getting up at 2am, he starts out with a whine, and goes into barking, and doesn't stop, last night I listened to it, for a hour and a half. I take him out at 10 or 11 pm at night, so there shouldn't be any reason for him to be waking up and doing this. HELP!!
hey Tander, My 1 yr. old neutered pup Toby(Malt/pom mix), does this occassionally too. He can hold it all night but lately he has been waking up in the middle of the night. He didn't last nite, but almost every day this past week, he did. He actually does go potty when I let him out. A couple of times it was to poop. I don't think that his eating or drinking habits have changed. I do sleep with a fan on in my room for white noise and if it isn't on, he seems to wake up easy because he hears things. Try a fan to block out any noises that may be waking your dog up. I think that Toby will hear things, wake up and then decide he needs to go out. Otherwise he would probably sleep through it. Make sure there is nothing wrong with your dog physically first though.
My 9 month old male is doing this too. I was up aallll night last night. He has developed some kind of weird insomnia. I don't know what it is but it's driving me crazy. Last night he was sitting on the floor by the bed (he's allowed to sleep on my bed) and was letting out this slow drawn out pathetic sounding cry. Holy moly, when will it stop?
The same thing happened to me, my dog was waking me up about 3:30am every night. I figured out that it was the paper boy was coming on to my front porch delivering the Am paper. She was hearing it and warning me. I moved the box out to the street and we now sleep all night.
