Hi! Im new to this forum and I'm hoping you can all help me. I've got a 14 year old male Yorkshire Terrier (Toby) who is causing us a few problems. During the day he's crying/barking on and off - very difficult to stop him. We also have another Yorkshire Terrier who is 17 years old and Toby just constantly bullies him - barking at him to get out of the bed and crying when he won't move. The biggest issue is at night. They have tea at 5pm, have free access to go in and outside until 10.30. We then lock them in for bed and they settle down. However anything between 2am and 3.30am we hear crying from Toby. Well more like barking/crying/shreaking noise - it's so loud it wakes up the whole house. This only started around a year ago & when we greet him in the kitchen he seems to want to go out to the toilet every time. I'm not sure why and how he needs the toilet, he might have access to water all the time but barely drinks and he goes out several times before bedtime. The problem is that this is daily and can be once or twice a night. There's nothing medically wrong with him but I really don't know what's triggering it or how we can help him sleep through. They're alone for 6 hours during the day sometimes and never make a mess so im confused 1. Why he really needs to go and 2. Why its only just started a year ago. Does anyone have an suggestions? We've tried ignoring him but he will bark/cry ALL NIGHT. He won't settle until he goes out. It's causing us lots of issues and all of our family work different shifts so it's really affecting our sleep pattern as well as Tobys! Thanks in advance.
