Maggie sleeps in my daughter's room. When Maggie was a pup we had to crate her. Now she doesn't want to sleep out of the crate. I have stopped locking the door but she wants to stay there anyway.
If my daughter is home Maggie will stay in bed until 8 or longer, however if my daughter is not home Maggie wakes up early. Usually around 5. Its ok for me because I am an early riser and even though its summer and I could sleep longer, I am always up by 6 at the latest.
I don't know how you can change a beagle's sleep pattern. Maybe a later bedtime and a walk or activity to tire her out before bed. Can you fool her at all by darkening the room a little more?

Tucker is getting real good about waking up as he's gotten older. He usually waits until I start getting up before he moves out of his bed. That time changes based on the day of the week. Not that he isn't up already, he just doesn't bug me yet for breakfast. When he was younger, he would wake up when my alarm went off and paw at the bed for breakfast. Years ago he jumped on my chest to get me up.

Now Cleo was a different story. She started out getting up at 6AM and demanding breakfast. I could swear she could read the clock as she would wake me up at exactly 6 even if my alarm clock wasn't set. As she got older, she wanted to eat even earlier. The earliest she ever woke us was 4:30. I am not a morning person so that was out of the question. She discovered if she went to the living room and barked, we had to get up in order to get her to shut up, since we were up, breakfast? So we put her in our room and closed the door. That is when she discovered the spring door stop. She would paw at it to make that awful noise until we got up and fed her. She never did bark in our room. At least she gave us that courtesy. As I think about it, I miss those early morning wake up calls. (I nicknamed her my second alarm clock. If it didn't go off, a vet visit was in order)

Ours sleep downstairs and wake up when we go down stairs. They usually go outside have breakfast and then they go back to bed.

Lately it has been 4am. Grrrrrrrrr!
Ben wakes up and just started licking at his paws (allergies) like there is no tomorrow. It literally shakes the bed!

If he is not in a an allergic state he rouses about 6:30 (goes out for a piddle and then can usually be coerced back into bed if it is a weekend.

Colby sleeps in his crate and whatever time I get up is good for him unless it is before 9am. I hate waking up early so I'm glad he learned to just sleep in.

Leo will sleep in until I come out in the living room (that is where his crate is). If its on the weekend and I am being lazy, which is almost every weekend, I keep the blinds shut and he thinks its still nighttime. I would say he normally get up between 7 and 7:30, but he doesn't go to bed until 10:30 or 11 pm. I always walk him at night to wear him out as well.

I don't know, noon or 1:00 pm! We are real night owls, though, so their last walk is usually well after 1:00 am, sometimes much later. But even if we go to bed at a more reasonable hour so that their last walk is at 11:00 pm or so, they are still dead to the world in the morning and rather than getting up when we get up, they burrow under the covers and squint their eyes against the lights and basically give us grumpy keep it down looks! Booker's former owners said she was the first one up in their household every morning, even before 5:00 am, but I really don't know how that happened because even from her first morning with us she has been a reluctant early riser and would much more happily lounge in her bed until the afternoon...

Caesar stays in bed, burrowed under his blanket, until I wake him. Sometimes he'll stay there until he hears me get his breakfast.

My two have been really good about sleeping in since I took the nighttime water source out of the bedroom, where they sleep on the bed. I took away the water because I found a little roach hanging out next to them, and part of the roach elimination plan means elimination of water sources. With no full puppy bladders, waking up to go potty at the crack of dawn is no longer as high on their priority lists. They usually get up with me when my alarm goes off. My boyfriend wakes up an hour or two earlier (ideally), but they stay curled up next to me. They have always been more excited about getting up during summer months; in the winter, they could care less about getting out of bed.

Unfortunately Bodie's wake-up schedule varies. Some morning he'll get up at 6 with my wife. Other mornings he's still crashed out when I get up around 7:30. We wish he'd stick to one time though. He goes to bed around the same time every night too.

Jersey is up every day between 6:45 and 7 a.m. I leave for work at about 6:45 almost every day and she is up right after that. Some days a little earlier, some a little later, but 7 a.m. is her normal time to get up time. I wish she could understand the concept of sleeping in on your day off.

We are always up by 5:00 or so, on rare occasions we might sleep in until 5:30 on a weekend. Murphy is pretty good about getting up and going out, but he'll usually jump back up on the bed while we're showering.

He's always up and ready to go after were done with the showers (no later than 6:30).

I hear you. The only time I ever get to sleep in is if my boyfriend happens to wake up earlier than me and take care of the dogs (has happened maybe once or twice the whole time we've had them) or when I'm on vacation. Sigh.

LOL!! I can just picture that!

Daisy will get up whenever I do, which is 5:30 am during the week and 7am on the weekends. If she tries to get me up early on a weekend day, I just say a quiet no, and she settles back down.

We're usually up by 7:00 a.m., but it's not Li'l Girl wakes up. Traveler or Misty gets us up. Li'l Girl and Spook would snooze longer, but once one's up everyone's up.
