Default Couple of questions...

Brodie is doing great but I have a couple of questions.

When Brodie goes upstairs she heads for our bed and pees on it. This is very odd because sitting on the couches or seats with us she never ever pees but our bed...she heads straight for and pees on it. Is this because she has never sees us in it and doesn't associate it with us? How do I stop her from doing this?

Also, Brodie gets up at 6am every morning no matter what time she goes to bed at. Now this isn't a problem at all, but around 5am she starts barking for about 5 minutes and then goes back to sleep. She is driving my husband crazy with this as he wakes up and can't get back to sleep. Brodie is crated downstairs in the kitchen overnight. Any suggestions or advice?

Should I move her to our bedroom so she feels close to us and won't wake up early barking?

The 5 am thing - does something happen around that time in the house, or maybe a neighbours house, e.g. Milk delivery, heating turning on, neighbour leaving for work, other animal in the house doing something, e.g. a cat?

No, nothing out of the usual. Heating comes on at 6am, no deliveries. The cat could be coming in from her night out but usually we hear the cat flap and we don't hear it then.

Cassie wakes up every morning at around 6am also no matter rain or shine. The crate is covered to prevent distractions and keep any light from waking her but I swear she has an alarm clock in her head! I haven't been able to sleep in for 9 months. I really don't want her to make any noise early on weekends out of respect for our neighbors so she gets my full attention. Having said that she sleeps at least 9 hours...I guess that little bladder can only hold so much, eh?

Last night we tried an experiment. We took her out of her crate, moved her favourite chair to our bedroom and let her sleep on that all night. At first we had to get up every 30 seconds to put her back on the chair, but after about 10 minutes of this, she stayed...then stayed there all night without a peep until 6:30am. We woke up first checked the carpet for pee and finding none, had to wake her up for her walk.

I can't quite believe how lovely it was and hubby says he absolutely loves her for that whole night's sleep.

With any luck, the added bonus will be that she also sees that our bed is for us to sleep on and she will stop running upstairs to pee on it!
