    DefaultWhat time does your pooch get up?

    Lately Harley has taken to waking me up every morning at 5:30 to go pee. To start with, I am not a morning person, and while I don't begrudge Harley having to go pee, this is a little bit early for me! Is there a way to convince him to sleep in a little bit?

    Oh and the thing is Harley is still young so will probably need more frequent pee breaks, as he gets older he will learn to sleep through longer im sure

    I agree with Kaznalf.

    Dexter use to wake up early to pee. He is now almost 2 and he will sleep for as long as we do. During the week I get up at 6am and sometimes I have to encourage him to get up for his walk. At the weekends he will sleep in for as long as we do.

    The latest I get up is 6:30 am. HK never wakes me. I generally wake her up after I am dressed and ready to take her out.

    Ditto, I'm up at 4:30 for work, so the dogs go out for the first potty round... they usually go back to bed or come in the office with me.....kinda stinks on the weekend, but they are willing to go back to bed and let me get another couple of hours in....

    My puppy apparently has an extremely large bladder - even when he is let out of the crate at (no later than) 6:30 he usually does not go out to pee.

    Diesel, on the other hand, still wakes me up in the middle of the night often to go out and goes out again at 5:30 am when DH is up. One of the joys of having a diabetic dog.

    If you want to control how early your puppy wakes you up, be sure that he is out for a pee break late at night - and pick up his water dish after 9 PM.

    My boys want their breakfast, and if we're not up by 6:00 am, they will start getting fidgety and whining. I can tell them it's too early, and they will be quiet for a little bit. But let either of us so much as move a muscle or blink an eye, and they are bouncing off the walls. They don't care about going out - they want food!
