So my dog is generally fine in her crate at night and can make it through the night (she usually starts whining to go out around 6 or 7, as that's when we usually get up). We've been wanting to have her stay with us in our bed at night, though. She hates going into the crate and having one less block of time each day where she has to go in it. However, she wakes us up in the middle of the night having to go out. If she can make it through the night in her crate why can't she in bed? She's 10 months old, so she CAN hold it that long. Is there anything we could do to convince her to just wait til morning?

What confuses me is that she's fine all night in the crate. No whining or barking. She doesn't have food or water in either situation. Bathrooming is the same both ways.

Funny thing is, last night I came home late and got into bed and she wasn't settling, and kept getting up and messing around and I finally said "Goldie, if you don't get into bed and settle right now I'm going to put you in the crate for the night." She immediately looked toward me, hopped up on the bed, and settled, sleeping until 5:30.
