Sounds like maybe you have some critters in your yard at the early hours - maybe rabbits or deer? Does he get a good walk before bed to tire him out?
It could be rabbits now I think of it, he does have his usual walk at around 7.30pm every night which has always worked but maybe time to push it back or stay out longer than 1.5 hrsSounds like maybe you have some critters in your yard at the early hours - maybe rabbits or deer?

I don't have the answer,but besides the fact that he's driving you crazy, my first thought is, "Now isn't that just like a Beagle?" Only a Beagle could have dreamde that up! I have had Beagles for 17 years so I can be honestly sympathetic. Just be grateful you have had the opportunity of livin with a Beagle that has one of those maddening traits that makes you love him even more.Hi all,
Looking for some advice my 1 year old beagle is having issues with his sleeping pattern and frankly it’s driving me insane.
He’s always had his moments with sleeping but has usually always been good. He now has a habit of waking between 1-3am and crying to be let out. I let him out (in case it’s the toilet calling) but he never needs the toilet. He will literally stand outside in the garden and stare at me. I usually have to bribe him with treats to come inside which I know is reenforcing the behaviour but if I don’t he often starts barking or howling which is not ideal in the early hours of the morning. I bring him inside and he cries at the door to be let out for 1-2 hours !!!!
For context he sleeps in my bed and also he usually falls asleep around 10pm absolutely fine.
Any advice on how to stop this or even slightly help would be appreciated!
