    Both Shadow and now Pretty have always woken hubby up to go out while I pretend to be asleep still. That works for me.

    Any posts made under the name of Di_dee1 one can be used by anyone as I do not give a rats.

    Ziggy can hold on throughout the night, although she usually wakes up around five because she wants to play or explore.

    Well well well, I think Mr George is havng me on: using it as an excuse to go and check out the night life!! I'm going to see how we go with me telling him to go back to bed when he starts whining... Not sure if the OH will appreciate the training process though!! I really don't thing he will pee inside (the dog, that is!) as he hasn't since he was about 3 or 4 months. Fingers crossed!!

    Leo (1.5yrs old) goes out for a wee 9.00-9.30pm then i close the back door for the night. He then has access to go outside from around 6-6.30am, but usuallly doesnt wonder out for his morning wee till after 7am. I dont know how he does it! As I gotta go within the first 5 mins of waking up!

    Its sounds like its just become habit with George, although dont know what to offer to train him out of it.... sorry.

    Take him out on a leash maybe if he insistent on going in middle of the night and if no action, straight back to bed, No cuddles/kisses! but praise him if he does go...

    hmm I've been having similar problems lately.

    I think it's caused by

    * hot overnight weather - we can't sleep.
    * the 2:30am extra long and squeaky freight train when the night is calm and you can hear it really easily.
    * the neighbours' cats chasing mice and each other in my back yard
    * mozzies (though I try to use mozzie pads)
    * not enough of a PM walk.
    * thunder and lightning or full moons lighting up the dark.

    Last night I fed her late, stayed up a couple of hours to allow her dinner (and mine) to settle, we went out for late night pitstop and I think we both slept through the freight train. Or it didn't come last night (unlikely).

    But I woke up with mozzies attacking at 3:50am. Sheesh.

    Frosty isn't as bothered by the thunderstorms as the hot and humid that goes with it. Turning AC on helped us both sleep.

    Maybe a kiddy pool would be more appropriate given George's size!!

    PMSL.

    I saw that comment and thought...

    Forget the newspaper, grab all the boxes and cardboard you can find from the back of the supermarket! Lol.

    I think he's having a game with you NN. Just roll over and pretend you're asleep.
