|ugh, I feel you pain! Henry has a history of doing this.
At first we thought he had to go to the bathroom, but then when we put him directly back in his crate, he barked, and barked, and barked....
If he starts to bark, I usually cover his crate with a robe, that usually quiets him the first time. However, if he wakes up later and barks (or it doesn't work) the ONLY thing that works for us is buying some ear plugs and powering through the barking. Sorry!
This does work...eventually. This past weekend he was with my parents, and I suspect was let out of his crate when he barked, because Monday morning at 5 am he would not shut up! However, I let him bark for another 2 hrs (on and off) until I was ready to wake up and low and behold, Tuesday.... he was quiet (and still has been).
It takes some major patience. My husband got up and slept in another room because I wouldn't let him take him out!
