Treating dogs with severe separation anxiety

Personal protection puppy training
Night waking, and early rising are both common problem behaviours in Labradors under a year old.
New puppies are a special case, they have poor bladder control and may be very homesick for the first few days and nights. By around five months of age, most Labrador puppies are sleeping through the night until a reasonable time in the morning. It is quite common in dogs under a year old, for night waking to begin again after several weeks or months of sleeping well.
When noisy night waking restarts, there is sometimes an obvious reason for this, the dog might be feeling unwell, he may have been disturbed by a fox in the garden, or by hedgehogs snuffling outside the back door. One of my pups started night waking at nine or ten months old, and it turned out that a family of mice had moved into the kitchen.
However, depending on what your initial response to the barking or whining was, you may also now have a dog that has discovered a very good way to get your attention at 3am.


If you have had your dog since a puppy and he was previously sleeping well, then you can rest assured he is not lonely. We need to consider this when considering the options for getting the night waking problem resolved. But if you don’t mind, it may be the best solution for a peaceful night, especially if your dog is getting on in years. If the night waking started as the result of a tummy bug and the bug is now cured, he may grumble for a few nights, but he’ll soon get over it.
Hi I am a bit of an intruder here as my pup is an English Setter, but the prob is the same. My two and a half year old male lab has stated barking for his breakfast earlier and earlier.
He wakes up almost every night in the middle of the night to poop or pee and if he’s not tended to, he will poop on the floor.


He has been great for 5 months, then we went away for 2 weeks and since back he’s either waking in the middle of the night or early in the morning. We bought a new house last November and up until 2 weeks ago he always slept in the living room on the couch, but all of a sudden he has been sleeping in our bedroom on the floor at the foot of our bed.
Pup has his own bed in kitchen, closed baby gate keeps him apart from 2 other dogs who have the run of downstairs.
