Awwww, what a cutie. Oreo sleeps in his crate and does not get up until I am up and about, but I am sure others here that let their pups sleep with them will have great advice to give. I simply had to chime in and comment on how cute your little one is

How old is your hav? By the way, he is adorable. Brady just turned a year old, and he is sleeping much later than he used to. We started in a crate and he would start stirring and crying to get up around 7:00. Then we went the wrong direction and it became 6:30. He would get up and would be wide awake and ready to start the day. We started letting him sleep with us around 6 months old and he continued with the 6:30-7:00 thing. In the last month or 2, he has started sleeping in. It is wonderful. I hear him stir around 7:00 and then he jumps in bed, gives a few kisses, and snuggles back in until we wake him around 8:00. I have no real suggestions except for us, it just happened with time. I will say that if one of us gets up earlier, especially my husband who Brady gets up with, he will not stay in bed. As soon as someone rises, he is right there to join them.

Oh your baby is sooooo cute!!Duncan sleeps in his crate,but is also an early riser!!!I'm hoping that the older he gets and the more activity he has during the day will eventually lead him to sleep till at least 7am.
Good Luck!!!

Your puppy is beautiful. I never had a problem with mine sleeping. Since day one, they sleep through the night and don't get up until I get them up, ususally around 6:30 or 7am.

What a fantastic picture of your little guy!!

Ricky has been getting up from 5:15 to 6:15 for the past couple of weeks. I consider it a late morning if he's up at 7 ! He's crated and will bark to be let out. We've tried ignoring the barking, but it just gets worse and then I get very annoyed!

Sammy won't ever bark, even though he is also crated, and if left on his own, wouldn't need to be let out until 8 or even later! Ricky is an early riser though. I close the blinds in the kitchen and keep his crate covered exc. for the front of it, but it doesn't help much.

I don't know what to suggest! Sorry!

I tried something new last night. I left the dogs out of their crates, in the gated kitchen/dining rooms, to see if Ricky might not bark so early this morning. Maybe he just wants out of his crate, but not necessarily outside or in need of our company!?

I heard our teen boys get up around 6:15, drifted back to sleep and never heard Ricky bark. I got up with our daughter and hubby around 7:30. There was no pee in the kitchen, no paper towels in the garbage so I knew they hadn't made a mess anywhere. I'll have to ask my boys once they're back from school how Ricky was when they got into the kitchen. If it means he won't be so barky so early, then we'll just keep it up. *crossing fingers*

He is a real looker!! I think that the temptation of you in bed is too hard for him to ignore. If he were in a crate, he might be more willing to just look at you and then fall back asleep. Mine are used to getting up at 5am during the week, so on weekends, we dont make it past 6am- it stinks!!

All 3 of my pups sleep in crates. I have the crates in a room that's off of the laundry room....no windows in there so it stays dark. I turn the radio on low(they love the 60's oldies!) and they go to bed between 10:30-11:30 pm. They will sleep quietly until we get up. That time can vary depending which day of the week it is and how tired we are. Some mornings it is 9 am....they all hold their business and don't make a peep! We tried letting them sleep with us....BAD IDEA....it was chaos...they played "musical spots" all night long(hey, isn't that a Lionel Richie song?) .....my hubs was not happy....he said I could sleep with him or the dogs but not both. Needless to say the dogs got crated! But since then everyone, including them have gotten a good night's rest! By the way your little guy is a cutie!

That is interesting. I have all three in crates in our bedroom. I wonder if I moved them to the den if they would sleep later? I migh have to consider this!! Cause I sure would love to sleep a little later on the weekends!!
Its funny that you say that about when they sleep with you - mine do the same thing. They cannot sleep in one spot for more than an hour each, so every hour all 3 would move. And usually between our pillows, and push me up trying to get behind my pillow. Not good for sleeping!!!

Yeah, give it a try....if it's dark they don't know it's time to get up! Also I find a little music helps! Let me know!
