Hi

It's 2 am and eventually the whining has stopped.maltese used to sleep on our bed but used to wake during the night wanting to go outside. Habit formed. He now sleeps in his day bed in a dog play pen in kitchen but unsettled. He is off the bed a few weeks and still unsettled.
Do I just see it through? How long will it last ? Could it be separation anxiety ?

Your post was a little confusing, how old is your dog? How long have you had him? Did you take him out to go to bathroom before you went to bed (if not that might be why he was waking up in the middle of the night). Could him being upset partially be because he has to go to the bathroom?
It might help him if you slowly transitioned him away from your bed. For instance keeping the pen in your bedroom for a week or two, then moving out into the hallway and so forth. Or try putting something that smells like you with him when its bed time. It might also help him settle if you try and make him a bit more tired/worn out before bed.
Good luck :).
