I used to be crated but now i just sleep in a dog bed in the other room. Ever since we got our puppy (4months old now) I like to get up at 5 or 6 am instead of my normal 8am and wake up the puppy with me. The puppy is in a crate in the same room as me. My parents have tried moving the puppy to another room but whenever they get up to let me out it wakes up the puppy and then we are both wide awake and want to play in the yard! right now my mom is just taking me straight back in and putting us both back to bed but we both just whine because we want to play . My parents keep both of us awake till 10pm or later with one last potty break at midnight, take walks, restrict our water after 8 pm and feed us dinner at 4pm My mom wants to know what else she can do to help me sleep later like i used to

Sounds like it's time to go back to crating. Or learn to live with less sleep. I know what I'd choose.
