HELP- I have a 16 yr. old Dauchound that wakes up anywere between 2 am and 3 am EVERY morning wanting to be feed, He literaly walks the house back and forth whining for hours. I do not give into him until 6 am when we get up for work and feed our other 3 dogs and cats. This started about 8 mnths ago. I have been told by a Vet that he probably has a touch of sinility but, it drives us crazy and it takes all I have not to lock him up in a closet or something. I have tried confining him in another room but, he starts to bark instead and will not stop. (closing my bedroom door doesn't work either-he is VERY loud) Does anyone have any suggestions. I really think this dog is gonna outlive me.View Thread
