My dog has been waking up in the middle of the night at around 11 and 2. I moved his cage so he is sleeping on a cot still in the same area, the laundry room, but he is not sleeping through the night. Does he miss being in the cage?

Some dogs do need the comfort of the crate, they see it as a den. It may be that he no longer sees the room as a den.

I might try putting the crate back in it's place and see if he sleeps better.

He may be feeling anxious since this has gone on for a bit, so maybe a calming collar or DAP diffuser would help the situation. You can find these on amazon or in a pet store.

My goal is to provide you with excellent 5 star service – if you feel you have gotten anything less, please reply back, I am happy to address follow-up questions. Please remember to rate my service after you have all the information you need. I will greatly appreciate a positive rating as that is the only way I am compensated. Thank you!
