    I dont think i have ever gotten up to take a pup to the toilet at night. Ever. And was taught by my ex husband, that if you are nasty when woken, things stop waking you. kids n pups included.

    Crate, by bed. Crate can be anything, from a really expensive one, to a kids travel cot from charity shop whilst house training to go through the night without waking me.
    Ear plugs, and shifts devided by amount of staff on your family team to share it with. Kids should really be about 6yrs of age, before you ask them to get up and take a pup out to toilet anyhow.

    Depends if you'd rather be woken up - or have to clean up the mess in the morning and teach puppy it's better to pee in the house than wake you up.

    Personally - I'd rather the dog woke me up. Saved a few dramatic messes when she's had stomach upsets (ie eaten a bone without chewing it first).

    First time Banjo woke me up to go out at night - she was 8mo and weighed 18 kilos - she jumped right on top of me! I must not have reacted well to it because she never did it again. The next time, she nuzzled my hand instead.

    Lol, Frosty used to walk around to the pillow end of my bed and poke me in the head with her paw.

    She doesn't bother getting out of her bed now, just pokes me directly from there. She's got longer legs now, can reach further.

    But what really gets me up in a hurry is when she actually goes out and sits by the back door and makes one really pathetic bark. Ie that's really desperate to get out.
