Romeo gets up when I get up. Zoie too but she would prefer to stay in bed another few hours. Skye...I've been trying to encourage her to bark and jump around when the alarm goes off (I have a hard time waking up) so...we are getting there . If she really wants to go out and pee she will bark at me incessantly.

It's not by luck that my dogs are good about sleeping when I sleep. It's a rule in this house! lol. That's why Happy got the pillow tossed at her. Sorry, dog... I went a week with listening to her whine at 5am, and when it was apparent that ignoring it wasn't going to fix anything, I had to do something lol.

Seriously if that habit wouldn't have been so easy to break, she was going to have to sleep somewhere else then.

So now, if my dogs whine to get up before I do... they usually have a bladder that's about to explode, or wicked bad diarrhea

Frodo gets up whenever we do. If I have to be at work in the morning Frodo stays in bed while I shower and get ready, then I have to go get him to go potty.

That is one of the main things I am not looking forward to after this week. Puppies require midnight potty breaks :/

Both of my dogs are really great about sleeping in if my schedule is erratic. While I worked for TSE they were both horrendous about sleeping in because I was up at pretty much the same time every single day. Buzz is back to "normal" not and only needs to get up to pee.

Hudson is not a big believer in sleeping in. I might kill him. Anyone want a puppy?

I will say, though, if any of them has a potty emergency they WILL wake me up which I am very grateful for. But that's different than just a normal average morning.
This is pretty much Jackson.

So long as I let him out late enough (after midnight), he will actually sleep until past 11am with me (if I do, lol, usually I have to pee before that). But in general, he gets let out around 10pm and wakes up around 8am with me. When I have the early shift, and have to get up at 6:45, I am the one waking him up.

Cricket and Newton are morning dogs. They're polite about it won't wake you up (unless they really need to go out) when as soon as someone gets up, they're ready to get up and play. Journey, on the other hand, definitely is not a big fan of the morning - we share that viewpoint. She sleeps in as long as possible.

Both of our dogs will sleep in as late as I do. They don't get up when the boyfriend does (he gets up earlier).

All of my dogs wake up whenever I do. They'll sleep anywhere from like 6-12 hours. Once they suspect I'm awake, they're really happy and looking forward to breakfast, but they never wake me up. Even the puppy has slept through the night for 8+ hours since day one. Easiest puppy ever. Sometimes when I wake up in the middle of the night though, I'll let her out if I want to sleep in later when I go back to bed. That way I don't feel guilty.

Harlow is one that you have to drag out of bed. Rider gets up when we get up. When I go to work, I leave the dogs in the bedroom, so they normally get up around 10, with a quick morning potty break around 9.

So easy going.
