PostSubject: Waking up at night   Wed 05 Jan 2011, 6:39 pm

Last night and the night before, Enzo woke up at 3am and needed to go out for a wee. He doesn't usually do this, he normally sleeps right through.

I woke up because I could hear him whinning at the top of the stairs and last night I woke up as soon as he got out of bed. Nothing usually wakes me up but I seem to always wake up if he moves about. This first thing I thought was that he was gonna be sick, but it turned out he just needed to go up the garden. (I always think the worst lol)

Last night once he had been out it took him ages to get back to sleep and kept me up so i'm knackered today!

But i've been trying to think why and wondered if anyone else's doggies do this?

He is quite into his routine so maybe its because we are all back at work now after being off for xmas its unsettled him?

Think im just worrying over nothing lol!

You probably are but what kinda mam would u be if u didnt eh!

Just keep an eye on him, if he is ok in himself i wouldnt worry about it. Suppose it could be a water infection but like I said, if he seems happy enough, make sure he as fresh water, and even if it is, he should pass it himself - his a good healthy lad spinner smile

cassie did this a short while ago and was waking about 3am not settling and I had to get up and let her out and she too needed to pee, the only night I ignored her the first night as I thought she was just restless, she peed on the carpet, my fault I should have let her out, she even peed in the day one time when I was out, Im afraid I never go to the bottom (excuse the pun) as to why she was doing this, it went on for three or four nights and then stopped and she hasnt done it since, I did wonder if I was giving her too many treats that were making her thirsty as she did seem to be drinking more during this time, so I have cut her back to only two treat biscuits a day,

sorry havent been much help, but do let him out or you might have to clean up pee the next day, I must add that when cassie asked to go out during the night she really needed to pee even though she had peed before bed time, good luck xxx

Maybe he's just got a wee chill and isn't feeling great,

Diesel did this a couple of times a few weeks ago but he did need to go when he woke us up so i'd rather he did that than peed in the house

He only did it a couple of times and then it stopped I wouldn't worry too much
hopefully he will just go back to normal and let you get a good night's sleep

Thanks for the replys, puts my mind at rest knowing others do it too sometimes.

He always stays up later than me, my mum doesn't go to bed until late so Enzo sleeps on the chair until she goes up. But he is good at letting us know when he wants to go out, he will wait at the back door. Maybe ill just get mum to open the door for him before she goes up to double check. My Dad smokes outside so Enz usually goes with him several times in the evening, so he has plenty of chances.

I did wonder if he was feeling under the weather a fews dads back because his stomach kept rumbling and making a gurgling noise. I just assumed he was hungry and that led me to look into if I was feeding him enough, so I have weighed his food out and checked against the guidline amount, but it seemed I do give him enough.

I will always let him out if he needs to go, sometimes if he is gonna throw up he will wait at the back door too so I am happy enough to get up and let him out.
I will keep an eye on him and see what he is like tonight too. He does seem fine in his self though.

I don't think you have any thing to worry about, it is possible settling into the new routine after the holidays, you all going to bed later, last wee being later maybe and he is just getting back into his stride.

I'd let him out as late as possible even if he is not asking to go out and then make sure he is well covered up at night.

Reuben has been a bit unsettled the last few nights, he has not wanted to settle in his bed and has been up and down on our bed disturbing me.
Last night however he slept straight through so hopefully it was a blip fingers crossed

Hope it sorts itself out, nothing worse than sleep deprevation, I've had it for the last two nights but it's not the dogs wanting to wee it's Glynn trying to cough his guts up. Last night I banished him to the spare bedroom to cough it out spinner smile

Last night was better, he woke up at 5am and started wondering around so I told him to go to bed and he did!! So alot better fingers crossed

I reckon Rocco and Enz have got together and decided "I know, lets really annoy our mums by waking them up in the middle of the night" and then they seen out post and thought "damn it, we've been caught" lol!
