Dog waking between 2-5 a.m. to poop.

I recently adopted a four year old German Shepherd mix. When we adopted her she was being fed Pedigree, and had no problems. We wanted to get her onto a higher quality food, so we switched her to Nutrisource gradually over a few weeks. Since then she has been waking us up to go out. We feed her at 7:30 a.m. and 5 p.m. We have already tried feeding her later, and less food. Any suggestions on what to try?

I would definitely change her schedule. Try feeding 1 hour before you go to bed. I assume the schedule you have now is around your work schedule. Good Luck!
