    Hi all,

    Can anyone help me, I have had my fox red Labrador since a puppy, she has slept through the night fine in her crate and now for the last 2 weeks she won't sleep on a night, I have tried everything from checking for noises, making sure she is exercised enough etc etc. I have tried ignoring her on a night and telling her off, nothing is working and I really don't know what to do.

    Can anyone give me any ideas or tips of what I can do to change this?

    Thanks in advance

    She might be hearing something, even a hedgehog passing or similar. Try putting her bed in a different room?

    Does she cry for you straight away or wake up in the night or wake up early morning? There are many reasons for a change of behaviour in this regard ....I presume she is ok in every other way and not in pain or poorly? And if she isn't spayed is the coming into her first season ....?

    It's most likely that something is waking her ....or has done .....and in which case i agree with the previous poster, maybe put her bed elsewhere or cover it. I find changing the routine helps, too ...time of last meal, last walk, last wee and actual bed time. And leaving her an Antler or something to chew on .....

    Short walks are good and maybe training if you are looking to fulfil her exercise quota.
