Hi -

My 5 month old Lab has always been great about sleeping through the night w/o waking us up to go out to the bathroom - it has maybe happened only 5 times since we brought him home. However, this week he has woken us up every night around 3 am to go outside to have a bowel movement. There isn't anything different about what he has been eating, in fact we don't feed him after 8 pm and he normally has a BM before we put him in his crate for bed.

Is there anything we can do to get him back to his old, nice schedule? Everything I read says that by 5 months his bladder should be able to hold more, not less.
