Hi all. this is my first post here so i hope ive put it in the right section!!-and hope you can give me some advice.
Louis is nearly 5 months old now (getting on a bit!) and as a small puppy he always slept through the night without needing the get up and go to the loo. However, in the last 2 weeks he has woken me up every night whining to be let out and when I do he has a long drink and a wee before going straight back to sleep! Being woken up at midnight every night is quite annoying but I'm happy to do it if he's uncomfortable but in addition to this he's now starting urinating in his bed too (I think this is happening in the day time whilst I'm at work - which is never more than 4 and a half hours). I know he's only a baby and can't hold it for hours and hours but we place a puppy toilet training pad down for him and he never uses it, although he's happy to use the one by the back door. We have toilet training in general pretty sussed but this is worrying me and I'm getting fed up of having to consistently wash his bedding. We even took the basket out of the crate (wondering if that would help, if maybe he basket was a bit small) and lined the crate itself with bedding but that has not helped. He has had a urine sample tested at the vet and that was clear. I'm quite worried about my little chap as this is unusual. We moved house about a month ago and I returned to work about 3 weeks ago. I don't know if this has anything to do with it. Any help would be absolutely fantastic!!
