Hi All, We have a near perfect 7 month old female lab. Slept through the night in her crate from day one, a big chewer but generally on her own stuff and completely dry in the house for the last 4 months. My last challenge appears to be getting her to sleep past 5:45am! She starts off whining then digs at the crate floor. We wait until she stops before we go down, it can be 30 minutes digging solidly so she is very keen to get out! She sleeps outside of her crate in the day (she originally was in her crate but can be trusted now so we have given her that freedom). She generally goes to bed at 10:30 in a covered crate. Her crate is towels and safe soft toys, as she chews at her bedding otherwise. She always has a final wee in the garden last thing. When we get up to her in the AM we take her straight out for a walk and she does a wee instantly and a poo about 1 minute later. We have tried: Putting her to bed later - she still wakes the same time. Letting her out in the garden instead of a walk (she runs straight out, eliminates, goes back to bed and sleeps). Getting up before she whines Having an alarm go off that she hears before we go in. Taking her for another walk in the early evening or late at night, but nothing seems to solve it - she wakes up the same time every day! Key parts from her routine (we both WFH, often both there but 1 of us always is 1 hours walk in the morning (off lead, running around in the woods). Breakfast in her frozen kong nap most of the AM with a wee break, bit of training and fun. 1 hour walk at lunchtime Lunch in her frozen kong nap most of the PM with a wee break, bit of training and fun. Dinner at 6pm in frozen kong. Play with us / bit of training. Has a long lasting treat chew around 8pm (bully stick, buffalo ear, beef tendon). Big drink then bowl is taken up. Sleeps from 9pm until whenever we wake her for a final toilet break! She is very much asleep at this point! I think it may just be a case of waiting until she gets older, but wanted to see if anyone had any ideas or similar experiences?
