    Default Unable to sleep thru the night

    For the past 2-3 nights Finn has been waking up in the early hours of the morning, 1am, or today, at 4am, walking around the bed, sometimes getting off the bed, and acting like he's "worried" about something (to put it in human terms). He'll pace around, and then when i get up to see what's going on, he sort of acts a little clingy towards me. It would be so much easier if he could just tell me what's wrong but he can't in my language so i'm left to try to figure it out.

    The only thing different with him physically is he's been licking his paws a little more. I did put him on a new food recently but he's usually pretty tolerant w/foods and hasn't shown signs of allergies or sensitivities in the past.

    Anyone else ever have similar scenario w/their bulldog getting up at night?

    Sorry, Henny, that's a new one for me. Could he be hearing something outside?

    Boogie men!!!!

    What about taking a step back and go back to the last food he was ok with and see if it makes a difference... acid indigestion or something like that??

    he is definitely more sensitive to noise than even Tate but i don't think that's it b/c he would usually bark if that happened. I'm even wondering if he sees something i can't see, like a spirit or ghost. I have been watching reruns of American Horror Story online so that's probably why i'm thinking like this tho

    I wonder this sometimes too! Winston will be laying down so peacefully and all of a sudden get up and stare at this one spot near my window and start barking and going crazy! After he falls asleep I am up for the rest of the night wondering what he saw that I cant!

    If switching back to the other food doesn't help.... Stop making him watch scary stuff

    Maybe he is getting excited for someone showing up soon?
    Only a biker knows why a dog sticks his head out the car window

    @Alice Kable, i've often thought of this since my house is very old and has seen a number of inhabitants. I doubt there will be anything Ghost Adventures-worthy there tho. But even if there was a ghost walking around wouldn't Tate also sense it? or maybe it's just indigestion like Bruce mentioned.

    Do you hear his tummy rumbling? Bad gas?

    buddha use to do that he would wake up in the middle of the night sit on my face and do the impossible to wake me up only to get of off bed to growl at the door until i would eventually get up and show him that there was nothing outside. he eventually got over it. theres still times when he does it and starts barking at the walls maybe its is a ghost or maybe he just doesnt like the paint of the wall lol
