• I work a midnights job and Ripley has taken to sleeping with me during the day and is now most active at night. the problem comes from that i like to sleep and act like a normal person on weekends, and he keeps my daughters and me up all night wanting to play. is it possible that i have turned Ripley completely nocturnal?


  • I just think that he's settling into your schedule. Dogs are creatures of routine. You may want to teach a "settle down" command for the weekend evenings, and of course, really tire him out during the day on the weekends. a really wiped out dog isn't going to want to play all night.
