Rescue with a 2AM problem
Folks we don't know where to turn. Moose is a 4 1/2 year old rescue that is mix of Lab and Great Dane. We adopted him at 7 1/2 months.
Over the last several months he has started to wake us at 2AM with the same behavior each night. Each night he comes into the bedroom always to my wife's side of the bed. He starts panting and wining repeats at intervals for hours. He has a dull look when we turn on the light. He goes to the back door and starts scratching until we let him into the yard. Outside he will just sit there for a couple of hours.
Wife thinks the behavior is directed at getting her out of the bed, while I think he feels he owns the bed. One other interesting trait is that when he spent time at our sons house the behavior was absent.
To date we have tried Melatonin, generic Zanex, late walks all with no success.
Thanks to all
