need help with sleepiing issue!

Hello,
We have a Havanese puppy that is about 6 months old. We have been having difficulty with early morning risings and wonder if we could get some tips.
He sleeps in a crate in our room. Usual bedtime is about 8:30.
Yesterday he woke up at 5:30, and today at 5am! Prior, his wake up time was around 6am.
I feel like he is getting a good amount of exercise (2-3 walks per day and playing in the house with the kids).
I don't think having him sleeping on our bed will work because he starts chewing the sheets.
I try to speak to him and reassure him while he's in the crate but he keeps whining.
Any advise would be appreciated!

Are you all going to bed at 8:30 or just the dog? I find when I go to bed earlier for some reason Molly wakes up too early. I usually try to take her out between 10 and 11 for one last potty and that works out good.

Ignore the whining, don't say anything to him. He may need to go out potty. If you do get up to take him to his potty area, do not talk to him, just take him to the spot and then bring him back to his crate.

Great minds think alike Dave!

Navneet - please know that when you ignore the whining it may get worse before it gets better. Just stay strong and continue to ignore the behavior; it will subside eventually.

Maybe your puppy is waking up and needs a potty break. Seems like nine hours is a long time to wait for a puppy. I take our two out around 11-12 and they sleep until 0800.

I would suggest potty as well and then back in crate. This happens with me and Chloe on the weekends, I take her out around 5:30 or 6:00 a.m. for potty and then back in her crate she goes, and falls back to sleep until around 7:30 or 8:00.

If you are staying up past 8:30 I would let the dog stay up. Make sure he goes potty last thing. I also wrap the crate in an old duvet so it is quite dark and den like. Ollie is 7 months and has slept from 11:00 p.m. till 8:00 a.m., 9:00 on weekends for a good month. We also have his crate in the utility room away from everything. That way I get my breakfast before getting him up. I still put him in his crate during the day too. Just to keep him comfortable with the idea in case I have to go out. Then he doesn't have an issue being crated in the daytime.
