Hi there, I am in desperation for some help, advice and tips. I have a beagle named Phoebe - she is just over 2 years old. When I first bought my beagle, I lived at home with my parents. At the beginning, there was a very big issue with my dad as he basically was insistent that Phoebe was never on her own and felt very strongly against crates. This naturally led to Phoebe having separation anxiety. Fast forward 18 months and my partner and I have now bought a house and moved out of my parents. So Phoebe, my partner and I all live in a new house. When we initially moved, it was in summer and Phoebe took to the whole move amazingly. She’s an extremely clever dog and quickly learnt a new routine at our new house. We even have managed to re-crate train her and now goes in for a couple of hours here and there and just settles absolutely fine until we come home although generally, she does prefer to be with people at all times. Backstory: At my parents house, my parents would allow Phoebe to sleep on the bed with them however this isn’t something I ever wanted in my own house. There were absolutely no issues with this up until approx October of this year (when the months started getting slightly colder) and then all of a sudden we started getting very broken sleep and Phoebe who slept in our room on her own bed, kept waking intermittently during the night and whining at our bedside with no obvious cause. We have provided Phoebe with her own bed which she loves and tends to initially go and get on herself and an actual single duvet which she loves being wrapped in. When she first started whining in the night, my partner and I assumed that it was because she wanted to get onto our bed as she would come to each side of the bed in turn. However, overtime, we have established that Phoebe must get too hot so she slides out from under the duvet then comes and whines at us when she gets cold because as soon as we say bed, she toddles back over and we lift the duvet and she snuggles back under then settles again for a little while - the set up is kind of a den-type situation. However this den-duvet issue was then w creating an issue within itself because she was now in the habit of waking every few hours, whining, her duvet being lifted up, settling then all over again. I therefore put it down to Phoebe being cold so moved her bed near the radiator, in more of a corner (den-type again) and we tried again. This didn’t really make much difference so we tried the ignoring approach for weeks as in to not reward her whining at the bedside at night - again to no avail. This went on for a few months however we are now in December and despite our efforts, Phoebe is still waking up multiple times in the night - > at least over 7 times a night. Finally after much discussion, my partner and I caved in and decided to let Phoebe sleep on our bed as she does at my parents house. (Phoebe still goes occasionally overnight as my partner and I can sometimes work shifts and therefore it’s too long to leave her alone - she sleeps on their bed and sleeps all through the night with no issues) Anyway, AGAIN, she will not settle. For the first 2 nights, she slept well. Minimal disturbances in the night however we are now back in the routine where she is just on and off the bed all night, she will not settle and jumps off to come to the side of the bed to whine - AND I AM JUST AT A TOTAL LOSS!!!!! General Facts - She definitely appears well in herself that wouldn’t automatically make me feel there was anything from that point of view - Definitely not a toilet issue. Sometimes in a morning, if we think let’s just get up, we go downstairs and she is in no rush to go to the toilet. She will actually come snuggle up on the sofa and sleep for a further 2 hours. - She has the same ‘routine’ at my parents house and ours yet she sleeps miles better there - She generally eats very well and gets fed at approx 9am and then 6:30pm - For her first walk, we usually take her on a proper walk as in Rivington or Pendle Hill and she gets anywhere between (1.5-2 hours), usually these walks are uphill and she sniffs until her heart is content. For her evening walk - she gets between 30 and 45 minutes and this is usually around the neighbourhood. - Our room is a converted attic room so sometimes I wonder if it’s noise however we have been here over 6 months and the first few months, she was miles better - We have blackout blinds and sometimes I wonder if it’s too dark? But then why has she not settled even on the bed with us close by? I just really am becoming very stuck. Although we have tried a few different things, we have stuck to them for at least 4-6 weeks at a time and that is a very long time to go when you are being woken up anywhere up to 10 times a night so please please please offer me your advice as to why this could be happening?!?!
