Bright and Early

Hi from sleepytown USA.... Mossimo has been sleeping through most of the night and will cry to go peeps at around 4/4:30 on rare occasion he will go back to sleep till around 5 or 5:15 but the past few days he wants to get up and start the day at 4:30am!.. SO EARLY!
He goes to bed at around 9 or 9:30 or so and sometimes I think when we put him to bed later, he gets cranky like a little boy

Does this go away ? Any ideas to curb the little early arrival of spunk?

Thanks

My little guy gets up early too (it was ~5:30ish, and this morning was 4:30). He is 5.5 months old now, but we have only had him a few days and are trying to get him in to a routine. He was ready to play and didn't want to go back in to his crate at 4:30, so I put him in his ex-pen. I heard him play with a toy for a minute, chew on a bone for a minute, and then he passed back out until the alarm went off at 7. (See my crate debate post in training area). I am traveling on business the next few days (bad timing since I only travel 1-2x a year), but my hubby is going to try and keep him in his crate all night and try to put him back in his crate after the early AM wake-up. If not, I guess it will be back to the ex-pen.

When you get up with him in the wee hours don't engage in any play. Don't talk to him, don't even make eye contact. Simply take him out to do his business and then put him right back in his crate. I would try to avoid even turning on the lights. It's similar to sleep training in kids!

I'd also try to keep him up a little later if you can; try doing it gradually. Take him for a walk later in the evening, keep playing with him, etc. if he goes to sleep just an hour or 2 later, he might sleep in a hour or two more in the morning.

My little one is 10 months and now easily makes it thru the night most week nights. On the weekend she is good until about 8am most days (unless i wake up early, then she's up). I was out late at a party saturday night and she let me sleep in until 9 sunday morning (but i did have a good play with her when i got home at 1am and she was out to do her business then as well)

I agree. Make sure you tire the heck out of your pup before he sleeps. Also, breeder told me to not give oreo water after 8pm when he was a puppy.

I am so blessed that oreo sleeps in his crate and just silently waits for us to wake up and let him out in the mornings...on our time.

I couldn't agree more Tuss. I need my sleep and was quite adamant about letting Timmy know it was time to go "to sleep" or "back to sleep", and he's great now. Maybe I was just lucky with my little guy. We're up at 5:30 weekdays and he sleeps in till about 8:00 on weekends.

Blaze sleeps until 0730 every morning like clockwork!!! I can't complain, he has NEVER got me up during the night from the day we got him...The breeder had the hardest time to crate train him too. Once he got it, he is great!!!

Thanks everyone. I think we need to keep him up later every night- he poops out from playing and training by 9 pm, and we don't go to bed until 10-11. He did sleep through until 6 this morning, but we put his crate on the night table where he can see us while we are sleeping. No whining, no getting up nothing. After 6 am potty, he went right back to his crate and was quiet we are getting there.

I think quite a few of us did that. I know I had to prop oreo up in his crate right by my bed.

Try moving the crate father and farther away slowly over a period of nights. This might get him use to eventually leaving the crate on the ground.

Thanks! I think in a few days we will try to put a chair in the bedroom and try him on that. These are really great ideas.
