Sleep through the night?
We've had Joey for almost two months.
He's almost six, and a Schutzhund Level 3. We got him from a family member (he has 2 other dogs; 3 boys under the age of six).
He's the greatest dog a person could have. He listens a good part of the time, and is housebroken.
My biggest issue is that he's been waking us up around 2 in the morning. Sometimes he whines, sometimes he doesn't.
We go to bed around 8:00, after Joey's walk.
Since I get up at 4:30 to go to work (husband's retired), how can we extend his sleep time? Do we just ignore him when he wakes us up? How do you know when it's a real potty need, or just him wanting us up?
