:eek:hno: crate training is hard. My little girl woke at 5.30 so I took her out for a wee. Only said Holly go toilet hen popped her back in her crate. Bless her little heart she is downstairs crying and I am upstairs listening :cry2:

All I want to do is give her a big cuddle and play with her. She needs to learn though I suppose :pout:

Hi Liz, we go to bed at 10.00 and get up at 6.00. Have you covered the crate with a blanket? Holly thinks it is morning. I would get up soon and go play, because I am a softie and then gradually get it later to your waking up time. You are awake now cos your posting! Xx

Dexter sleeps in his crate happily from 11 in the sitting-room and wakes at 5 every morning. I go down take him out for wee then I bring him upstairs and he sleeps quietly on the bed with me and hubby. There is no way he would be left again after waking up- this a compromise we have come to- he doesn't get attention at 5 am just company if he's quiet!

when you put her back in try giving her a chew or a stuffed kong, that might take her mind off things.

Aaah Liz if you can cope with getting up at 5.30am then go give her a cuddle. It is still very early days and like Cara has said try covering the crate. We have a blackout blind especially for Beau as she was up early all the time but with this she stays in quite a bit later. :)

Holly sleeping through until 5.30am on night 2 with no crying is brilliant! :D Lolly tends to wake at 6.30 ish now (as does my 8 year old son :rolleyes:) although it was a bit earlier when she was younger and we've never tried to put her back in her crate. She will learn to sleep a bit longer as her toilet control improves.
