    If the dogs are sleeping downstairs (they have only been in the bedroom because Dave was neutered) they just wake up whenever we get up. If something wakes Dave, he barks. Not repetitively, but one bark, then 30 seconds later another bark. That is his ''I really really need to pee'' shout.

    Everyone will have different experiences. Our puppy slept through the night from day 1. Never a peep out of her until we went down to her. Now she sleeps on the landing outside our bedroom. My girlfriend gets up at about 6am and Mabel more often than not will open an eye, say Hi Mum and flop her head back down. She loves her bed but onces she's awake she's awake for the day mostly.

    I know 2 of her siblings were nightmares as far as sleeping patterns went. They were waking at 4am for weeks. One still wakes at 5am at 2 years old.

    You just don't know if you're going to get a puppy that sleeps through the night or not until you get him/her home. You just have to be prepared for all eventualities.

    As you're not getting a dog for a year or so you have plenty of time to practice waking at 4am :D

    I ended up sleeping downstairs on a cot bed last night as Otto was a bit ill in the night. I was woken up at six this morning by two front paws being slammed onto my head. Apparently he was feeling better!

    Normally I let him out at 11.30pm, 4.30am and get up at 7am when he whines but he's not needing the 4.30 one as much now so hopefully I'll be able to drop it permanently soon.
    He's 11 weeks now and has gradually improved to this point from his first week when he needed to go out every 2-3 hours.

    Our dog is last to wake up in our house - but when she was younger, our indication she wanted everyone to get up was scratching at our bedroom door. When that yielded no results, she would headbutt the door to try and open it. Then we'd hear the scrabbling of paws on laminate flooring as she did some weird comedy-style run-up to the door, slammed her whole body into it and we'd find her in a slightly dazed heap outside by the time we got up to open the door.

    Still, 10 out of 10 for effort...

    Mine usually gets up when I do but if I sleep in I first hear him trotting up & down the hall. Then I hear a quiet uff. About 30 seconds later, a more insistent Uff. Followed by UFF and if that's ignored a very firm UFFF!

    He can also tell if I'm pretending to be asleep.:eek:

    Edited to add, he's probably saying UP! but has a lisp.... lolol

    Mine are a nightmare for getting up in the morning.

    I will get Oscar to the landing, then he will lie down. I'll get him down the stairs, then he will get in the bed in the kitchen. Then ill get him in the garden, and he stills prefers to roll on his back rather than wee.

    Same as ours..they will stay in bed till we get up.They are as good as gold..
    But as soon as some one starts to wonder around they need to go straight out for the toilet! :)

    Mine must have huge bladders. Alfie will always have a good mooch for catfood before he even gives peeing a second thought.

    Ollie goes to bed at about 10pm, and get up at about 6am, and he's done this ever since he was a puppy. He's always been very good during the night. You usually find him sitting and waiting for you in his crate at 6am, but he doesn't bark or howl to get your attention. If he hears you moving about upstairs around 6am, he will start whining, but that's it.

    From the first night of having Flynn he would have me up about 2-3 times a night for a wee. A couple of nights ago he went out for the last time at 11pm and has gone throught til about 6am. :) He sleeps in the kitchen/dining room and lets me know it's time to get up but his whining. Sometimes at 6am I can sneak another hour in bed but seeing as I'm usually up for work around 6.30am it doesn't seem worth it other times.

    busters crate is in our bedroom, i get up at 6:30, he wakes up with me when my alarm goes off and will whine once awake, I let him out, feed him, then he goes to sleep on the OH til 8 lol

    Weekends he will still wake up at half 6 and whine to get out the crate - once out he will sleep on the bed with us til we get up!
