Help! Early wake up!

We have had Coco for almost two weeks now. She has be great in most cases.
She does go often so pretty much my wife or I would take her out to pee or poo seemingly hourly. The part we have to get used to th most is her crying at 4:30 am almost every morning. We would take her out to pee and then both of us stay up. On the weekend we did once put her back into her crate so we can go back to bed.

Tonight, it is now 1:30 am. I took her out, put her back into her crate and now she is barking/crying up a storm. She sounds like a mad monkey.

Doesn't matter what time it is she doesn't like her crate much. Her blanket is in there, and a toy or bone. Crate is near the front door for easy access to washroom out the front door. It is covered, and in the same office as the aquarium and terrarium. I have been getting to work before 6am, did I mention that?

Ideally she would sleep 8 hours and wake at 6am!

I am not experienced at all, we have our coco only for a week. After she peed in crate, I woke up at 1 am and took her out. She peed. I put her back in, she whined for about ten mins. The only difference is that I use a small carrier at night time, because she sleeps in my daughter's room now, so coco calms down as she sniffs her fingers. Then I took her out at 5 am , ahem pedal and pooped. She was very hungry so ran straight to her crate in kitchen and then I put her in my daughter's room again. She is sleeping now. Will it be possible to keep a small crate in your room. My daughter volunteered because she wanted a second dog, and she promised she will help, ;-)

I supposed we can put a small crate in our room. With that said she can still cry when we leave the house when she stays in her regular crate.

When I first got Molly I put her crate next to my bed so I could hear her if she needed to go out and comfort her if I needed to during the night. After awhile I tried to put her crate in a different room at night but she just cried and cried. The crate went back in my bedroom and she hasn't made another peep during the night. She is an early riser, usually between 5:30 and 6:30. If I want to get up that early i stay up, otherwise she goes back in the crate and I go back into bed. She just wants to be in the same room as me. If you want to keep the pup in another room you just have to let them cry it out, just like a baby. (As long as you know they don't have to go potty). The first few weeks are the hardest, these are smart dogs and things will get a lot easier before too long.

She is still new to you environment and probably doesn't feel comfortable away from you. I would recommend moving the crate into your room in a spot next to your bed. That way she can see you when she gets lonely or afraid. If she starts to whine you can slip a few fingers in her crate to calm her down without having to get up. Some people keep the crate and the level of their bed to allow their dog to see them. With us that wasn't necessary.
Colbie has slept in her crate in my daughters room with the crate on the floor and has not cried or whined to go out other then her first night with us and that was last October.

She is adapatable so she gets up at 530AM when my daughter wakes up for school during the week, but lets us sleep until 8AM on the weekends. Some are less adaptable and want to get up the same time every day.

If you have only had her for a weeks I'm assuming she is still very young and you can;t really expect her to be so regimented at that age. Constant trips to the bathroom during the day are the norm. At night, that is a different story. She should be able to get through most of the night without having to potty.

Make sure she isn't drinking right before bed. We usually take away her water bowl an hour or two before bedtime.

When Leo first came home he slept in a small crate on a small table beside our bed. If he whined I could slip my fingers in the door of the crate to let him know I was close. He got up to potty once each night the first 2 nights and a couple other nights over the first few weeks but mostly slept from 10:00 pm - 5:30 am which is my usual schedule. Now that he is grown he sleeps in our bed. Your puppy would probably settle better for the night if she were tucked in much closer to you.

Good ideas everyone. I will ponder that with my wife.

Rudy is now 16 weeks. He rises btw 530-6. I love my sleep!!! So on weekends when he wakes up, we take outside and then he comes in bed with us and will sleep for 2-3 more hours!!! As LNG as I know he eliminated I have am good with that. Just a thought for weekend sleep!!!

It's like having a baby. 'And this too shall come to pass.'

I would take the water up earlier. like 7pm. I am not a fan of limiting access to water as it is an essential, but it is a tool to help them pee less during the night.

I'm a failure at crate training, all my dogs have been allowed to sleep on my bed at one time or another. I am also a very light sleeper so if my little pup stirred during the nite, I would take him to the pee pad... it's all a blur now as he is 5 yrs old.

He doesn't sleep on my bed anymore and he can hold it up to 12 hours (if he's not moving around).

hang in there and good luck!
