    Our 5 month old lab is perfect in every way apart from waking at 5am every day. We let her out for toilet and she will go back to sleep on the sofa with us till 7am. Any ideas on how to get her to wake later?

    My 5 month old is exactly the same, there have been the occasional sleep ins but usually it is 5am. I am hoping that once the teething has stopped that he will sleep longer, as I know he is capable of it. I’m getting used to it now and just go to bed really early.

    Is it the light mornings, birds tweeting ! When they are you they young they are so much more sensitive to seasonal changes. They get more resilient to that as they get older !

    My puppy seems to wake at around 4.30 for a poo, I don’t talk to her put her back in crate and then at 5 she wants to get up for the day. Can I ignore her whines in the crate or is that bad??

    I’m having the same problem. My pup is 4 mo old and having had quite a tricky first few weeks settling him at night, he seemed to get the jist of it and was sleeping from 10.30pm through to between 6-6.30am: perfect!! But the last week he has been waking at 5am and crying/barking for us to go down. I don’t understand why or what has changed? He is fully house trained and can definitely hold it until 6. Like yours, if I get up with him at 5am he’ll go straight to the sofa and go back to sleep. I just want to stay in bed until 6 I’ll be interested to see what advice anyone can offer.

    I’m glad I’m not the only one! Sophie is 13 weeks snd I’ve had her since 7 weeks. She’s up like clockwork at 5:30. If I put her back in her crate she barks and howls non stop so I don’t do it anymore since I can never go back to bed with that noise! I’m hoping when she’s a bit older she will calm down and hoping it’s just puppy energy. This morning she was super excited to see the moon.
