Pushy Sausage
My dog has lost the plot. My one year old daschund has taken to pushing me awake at night. He literally bulldozes me while I am sleeping by shoving his nose/face/head into my neck/face/head to the point that he completely moves me out if the way. he wont let me sleep. I think it' s because he wants out for a pee but he has never done this before so am a bit confused by his new behaviour. I have tried ignoring him but he then pees on the floor - which again I am not sure if this is because he actually needed a pee or is just being spiteful! in response to me ignoring him ( yes he is quite the clever little strategist). He has been fully housetrained, sleeping through the night without any pee-breaks until now. Any thoughts?

Dear Pushy sausage

Take a wee sample to your vet- it may be a bladder infection of some sort. While you wait buy a DAP diffuser to settle him back into his old routine.
