We have a four month old dachshund that is waking us up every morning between 4AM - 4:30AM. We let him whine a few minutes to make sure he isn't dreaming etc. and then take him out of his kennel to go potty. He does his business right away BUT when we put him back in the kennel he cries. We ignore his cries but he will continue. I will get him up at 6AM to eat breakfast which he does with gusto and THEN wants to go back to sleep (usually in the bed with us). He eats supper at 6pm at night and has walk and play time until we all head to bed about 10PM. Any ideas, suggestions,etc.
