Looking for some advice/ help with my 8 month Springer Spaniel. Poppy is house trained, and has been since around 10 weeks old, she was crate trained and occasionally cried to go out for a wee in the night but mostly slept through. Recently we stopped using her crate and now she has a raised bed in a room with a child gate to stop her leaving the room. Her daily routine is as follows: Get up 6:30am Feed 8am Walk/Training for an hour at lunchtime Feed 5:30am (used to be 6:30) Off lead walk for 40 mins around 6:30pm Free access to garden all day to go toilet Encouraged to go we/poo around 9:30pm Bed around 10pm She is waking us up between 3-4am every night, and we are exhausted When she gets up we let her out, no fuss and straight back to bed. Tonight we stayed in the park for 1.5 hours and then the garden another hour to try to have her poo before bed but nothing. She seems to hold it in, and I think the reason is she had an awful time as a puppy with food intolerance and severe diarrhea and so I think she won't go now until she is absolutely desperate. She also gets distracted so easily (I guess to be expected owning a sniffer dog). Please let me know if I should change something in her routine, willing to try anything!
