Ah, ok, if you took him out and he didn't go, I'm sure you're right. Can you try to make sure he exercises more and sleeps less during the day? Kody is sometimes like that when he takes a late evening nap. It may be a critter, but I'm thinking he was already awake enough to care about it. It seems telling that he acts wide awake.

Cheese? PLEASE!

When our husky was doing this we would put his blanket in the dryer for a few minutes so that it was just warm enough to comfort him and it really helped to calm him down. I hope this helps!

Cheese? PLEASE!

A couple other things I have thought of..
Could his food switch somehow be causing this...?
Could it be making him have dreams...?

Another thought is maybe he is getting too warm in his crate...?
S/O does not let us run the AC at night and although the basement is generally cooler than the rest of ths house, maybe he is just too warm in there, and there is no where to adjust to find a 'cool' spot...?


Incidentally, I *did* think we were out of the woods, but he did it again last night...

I just want my sound little sleeper back!! frown

He is not one to bark, so it is boggling my mind..

I am also wondering if something is bothering him health-wise.
I have read that an animal in pain will not whine or 'complain' about it during the hub-bub of the day, but at night when everything/everyone is quiet and he can focus on 'himself' more, than that might be why he is barking like crazy. I don't know though, that is just something I red on the 'net...confused
