I'm not going to be much help. Ours started in the crate in our bedroom but like your husband I couldn't sleep. Loki moves around all night. I moved him to his large crate (2x6) like Shama's with a bed and pee pad. He went to bed fine but started waking between 4:30 and 5:00. I did everything - letting outside to potty without talking and then putting him back, letting him bark it out since he could go on pee pad, keeping him up later - but could never get him to be quiet when he woke up. One morning he barked, whined, cried, talked, every vocalization he could think of for almost 2 hours straight. He slept in bed with us at my sister's at Thanksgiving and slept until 7 a.m. After that he has been in bed with us. He normally sleeps until we get up. Occasionally he needs to potty during the night. He will wake me up, and after he goes out he goes right back to sleep.
