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.
