I’m just guessing here that this may be your first Dober
I don’t why you and all the others had problems with there little puppies sleeping , all of ours have been perfect , perfect angels , always sleep all night , went out and pottied when asked , rain , snow , hot , high winds , didn’t matter
Well not really but always wanted say that , lol
Have you tried throwing down a 12 pack ,then go pass out , then wake up around 2:30 to go to the bathroom l then let the dog out , then back to bed ?
I really sorry here , but you relit good memoirs of our puppy raising years , and something , hopefully we will doing again one of these days .
Ok , know I think I can be serious
to me , just not enough info here , like do you work all day and is he crated all day long ? Is it just you , or is there other family members ? What if any training do you do ? Fenced in area to run in ? How much time do you spend with him before bedtime ? When does he eat , drink last ?
Your Dober boy is bored out the azz and ready to get up it sounds like to me , talk about hitting the nail on the head by all the others that replied ! They smart beyond there years and they are pros at training us ! Me included , lol
Now Ali girl was the worse of the group we have had , she was a night owl , but not really , she just wanted to be with us , I have said that Dobermans not only need attention , they demand it !
we tried the sheet deal over the crate one night , I was sitting there watching it , than I seen the sheet start to move , lmao she had grabbed the sheet with her shark teeth and was pulling it threw the crate wires , the little stinker .
I will say at this time , work him more before bed time , mental work really wares on them , playing ball , training , it will all help some , OR just put him in bed with you at night , that will do the trick
Best of luck
