Hi All -- Finley and I have a nice structured night/morning routine where she wakes up around 8 am everyday and I put down her breakfast not long after. Over the past few days I've noticed her wanting to get up even earlier and whining (even a dramatic whining/barking tantrum!) when I try to get back into bed for an hour.. Does anyone have advice as to how to stop this behavior? I've tried walking her when she wakes up and I've also tried giving her a chew toy or treat as a distraction, but she's relentless until I get out of bed. Simple commands are not enough now. Shelties are such a creature of habit and I want to make sure she's getting what she needs but also allowing me to sleep/rest without whining and barking for me to get out of bed! I've never had this issue with my previous sheltie.
