Yawn! Well, she is still an early early riser. She is pretty consistently making her first time up at 3:30 or 4:00, but then she wants to be up for the day by 5:15. I'm sure eventually she will grow out of it. Right? Right?

Yup. But by the time she grows out of it, you'll have adjusted to it and you won't be able to sleep past 5:30.

LOL Corgipower! You may be right. Though, after 6 human babies, I can pretty well adjust my sleeping patterns to most anything

Corgi! You're not supposed to tell her yet! She's not ready!

I will just second what everyone else has said since we just went through this in the last year. Osa would need to go out twice a night for about two weeks and then it changed to once a week for about a month and then she could hold it all night (she was about 5-6 months old).

Just remember too, when you puppy gets a little older, they will start to play with your patience to see what they can get away with. All of a sudden when Osa was about 10 months, she decided she wanted to get up at 5:30 on the weekends (that is earlier than she gets up on weekdays) to go out and then she would try to snuggle since we were up. Once we realized she was playing us, that changed very quickly. Now Osa is a constant 6:45 - 7:00 am riser on the weekends which is about a late as we can get it.

Good luck.

I dont know if you got your answer yet, but I was told when I got my puppy, that they can hold their bladder for and hour times how many months old they are. My border collie puppy got me up at like 5am for the first two weeks, then slept till around 6:30, now she will sleep till around 9. Basically all she does is whine to wake me up, I let her outside, and put her back in her crate. She will go back to sleep after she goes. I have noticed it wasnt just because she was a Border Collie and had a lot of energy and didnt want to sleep. she just REALLY had too go potty

You could try taking her/him out right before you go to sleep, so they have an empty bladder, just to see if that works.

Good luck! I hope you pup stops waking you up so early!

Thanks, Bear Luv : )

Our vet says that as well (so at three months, three hours). I don't really mind how often she gets up, it's the fact that after 5:00 a.m. she won't go back to sleep and just whines and whines in the crate. I take her out before I go to bed (around 10:30) and she is good until about 4:30 now most nights. I take her out then and she goes, then I put her back in her crate. But, then at 5:15 she is ready to be up for the day and even if I take her out and put her back she will not quiet down until I get up with her.

Yawn. I think tonight I'm going to set an alarm for 4:00 and see if that makes a difference.

Just curious - have you tried this???
