Bentley is five months old; we kenneled him in our bedroom up until about a month ago - now he sleeps on his dog bed right next to ours. We let him out at 10pm, and then he typically wakes us up around 4am to go outside. He has always gone back to sleep, but the past two weeks, he just sits at the bedroom door and barks. My husband feeds him, and then he's all wound up, and really won't lay back down.
Any suggestions? I've tried ignoring it, thinking he'll eventually lay down, but after fifteen minutes of his LOUD bark, we're both beyond frustrated.
DH wants to move the kennel to the basement (where it'll eventually be anyway), but I think he's still too young - think he'd be terrified. Should we start kenneling him at night, in hopes that he'll sleep in his kennel?
Any help would be appreciated. TIA!
