And now it starts!
Our trio were all doing so well potty training, pixie & marley still are but Jasper now decides that he is going to wake us up at 3am and then again at around 5 or 6am, sometimes there are toiletries, sometimes not and we don't know from which one, but this sets Jasper off, whine...whine...whine...whine...howl...howl. We have tried keeping them outside until they do their business before we go to bed (usually around 11pm), jasper is always the one who may wee but will not poo and he waits by the door until we let him in, i made him wait for half an hour last time (on top of the 20mins the others were out with him and did their business) but he wont go do anything.
The whining around 5-6am is usually when there is no mess but he wants attention, we have tried leaving him to see if he stops but he doesn't (and i think its starting to annoy the neighbours) the longest we left it before going to see him was an hour (is that too short or too long?) Has anyone any ideas on how to stop this it's not something we've had to deal with before.
They sleep downstairs, i can't allow them into our room at night and the landing area is too small to fit a crate or dog bed. They do have pee pads which they use ok but we make them go out as much as we can. A full night's sleep would be very welcome right now :-)
