Help Puppy Barking in the middle of the night

Hi There.
Molly has always slept through the night, but since Christmas she wakes up at 2am, 3am, and then 6.30am she barks and barks until we get up. We let her out to pee and then she comes back for a hug and then goes back to sleep.
Does anyone have any tips or tricks to get her to sleep through the night again.
Molly is 19 weeks old now
Thankyou

Be glad that she's telling you she needs to go out.

True.....but she was sleeping the whole night through before Christmas....but now we are wondering if she thinks its a game to keep getting us up and down in the night.....and how we can break the cycle so she doesnt think she can do it forever ! Still love her though

Is she going more often during the day, too? If so, you might want to check her for a UTI. I'd probably have her checked anyway since this behavior is new...

We made the mistake of letting Sunshine go outside off leash at night. She woke us up a lot more to get snuggles, hugs and a romp around the yard at night. Now any middle-of-the-night potty outings are all business and on leash.

Good luck!

I think if we put Molly on the leash to go out she┤d be jumping off the ceiling thinking ĘGreat we are going walkies nowĘ!!! 8)

How long do you wait before getting up to let her out? It's possible that she has learned that when she barks you come. So she barks to get a response.

My Bentley has been barking a couple times in the night these last few nights. Part of it is because he is teething. After a few minutes he stops barking a whining. I won't go to him unless he barks for 10 min or so. Then I get up to let him out.

Molly barks for about 3 or 4 mins then we get up.....I feel it could be something she has learnt now that she barks and we go to see her.
