Chum (17 months) sleeps with Molly on our bed. Lately,he wakes up at 4:30 a.m. and jumps off the bed then scratches at the bedroom door. At first, I got up and let him outside but thought that was encouraging him so I keep a harness on him and try to keep him in bed but he keeps wanting to jump off. If I open the door he goes into the rest of the house and starts barking at reflections in the windows ( floor to ceiling) etc.
I don't give him any food or anything. Later, he goes to sleep on the couch but I am already up and often can't get back to sleep myself! It is really becoming a problem.
They go out last thing at night before bed. Should I get a crate? What do I do? Help!
