    Dog not sleeping through the night.

    Help... I have a three year old Rott who in the last two weeks has been getting up between midnight and four am daily.. Heavy panting..with some whining.. The Vet says the dog is healthy and not over weight (99lbs) but out of the blue's its like taking care of a new born that wakes during the night. The air is on as its hot here in Nevada, the dog has water, and I have been taking him potty when he gets up..So any suggestions other then winter hitting?
    Thank you!

    I have a cat that used to want to play at 4 a.m. Someone suggested it might be the time the newspaper carrier walked by. In your case it could also be a neighbor walking by in the "cool" of the morning. Hope that helps.

    \maybe bad dreams!Or something in its bedding that eventually makes him uncomfortable---are you giving him any late night treats(sharing your snacks-while watching tv)=indigestion.
