Just curious about your pups. Mine pretty much get up with the sun. As soon as it gets light in the room they won't stop whinning and pawing at me, and of course there is bitey face going on. Of course it doesn't matter to them if we went to bed at 9:00 pm or 1:00 am. Maybe I need to black out my windows, ha ha ha Also let me know if your dogs sleep in the bed with you as I am curious if that makes a difference.
Mine's up at 6:00 am (the clock's set for 6:15). Yes, he sleeps in the bed, but jumps off, and stands by my side, starting a low whine, then louder, while backing up, to let me know.....HEY, IT'S BREAKFAST TIME! :
Forgot to add...I get 7-8 hours sleep a night, depending on what time I get to bed.
Mine sleep downstairs with the doors shut so they don't have a chance to wake me. I only sleep around 6-7 hours a night though.
Our guys go to sleep and get up when we do. I guess we are pretty lucky?

My dogs are fine ,it's my aging bladder that wakes me up. I normally sleep 7 hours and never sleep in on the weekends. My girls can hear when my eyelids open, so the minute I wake they're up.

Aidan is our early riser here he wants out at 5:30AM no matter what time he goes to bed.

We have (mostly) trained ours to get up when the alarm goes off. It took many early mornings of ignoring very annoying whining, but eventually they got the hint that no one was going to get up until the alarm went off. Once it goes off, however, all hell breaks loose in the bedroom!

Lexi normally goes 8 or so hours. As for her getting up, it is usually when the alarm goes off, though the exception to this is the weekends when she normally wakes me between 6:00 & 6:30 to go out.
She sleeps on a dog bed by my bed. She's never shown any interest in wanting to be in my bed, except when I am making it. Then she gets up to roll around on it to mess it up some.
My pretty girl, Lexi!
At exactly 5:22 A.M. Merlot starts barking and won't shut up til I let him out of his crate. Of course this also wakes up Zoey, so she will whine softly, but not bark. If I go to bed at 9:30 I get 8 hours of sleep, but I usually go to bed at Midnight, so I only get 5 hours a night most of the time >
