|Hi there! We have a Saint just over a year old who did the same thing to us recently. He's always been good sleeping through the night, save for when he was still a puppy, but suddenly he started crying and whining to go out. We crate trained him, and when he grew out of his crate, we moved him into a den, which is just a short hallway with plenty of room, so we thought. The crying continued for well over a week, with us trying everything we could think of, until it finally hit us...give him more space.
The short hallway is attached to our kitchen, which is where his food and water are, so we made sure everything was put away and blocked him in the kitchen. Sure enough he slept through the night, and ironically enough, we found him in the short hallway the following morning. He's been fine ever since, with the exception of over Christmas when we went to my in-laws. We gave him the space he had had during our last visit, and he freaked out until we opened it up to him more, then he was fine.
Basically what that big long thing was saying is, is it possible for you to give your Saint more space? If that doesn't work, maybe make a quick call to your vet and see if they can give you some ideas.
