Gary_and_Karen Posted June 8, 2013 Report Share Posted June 8, 2013 Does your dog usually stick to a set bedtime and wake up time and if so what times ? The reason I ask is because we are not usually on a typical schedule but our dog has seemed to have adjusted ok to our hours. I work part time usually a couple days a week, occasionally may get an extra day or two, and I usually work second shift for the most part so I am used to getting up about 9:00 to 9:30 AM and getting to sleep by about 1:00 AM at night. Our dog will usually seem like she is getting tired to the point of getting a liitle cranky/mouthy (like when a little kid acts cranky from being tired) by around 6:30 to 7:00 PM so we put her in her crate with a peanut butter kong and she sleeps after the Kong. (she would try to stay up if we didn't put her in the crate, but you can tell she is tired so it is like making a kid go to bed when you know they are tired even though they may stay up if you let them) Most nights later in the evening we will let her out and on the bed for about an hour of evening time with us while chewing on a (closely supervised) rawhide bone. Then a night time potty run and back to bed in the crate. (evenings I work I let her out for a bit after I get home at night, she'll whine in her crate because she can smell when I get home Then anywhere between 5:00 AM and 7:00 AM I'll hear her lightly whine for a morning potty run, then she is content to go back to bed in the crate to sleep to about 10:00 AM. Anyone else have an unusual schedule that their dog(s) have adjusted to ok ? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
