Just a thought but sometimes my pups will wake me up to get a drink.  Maybe he wants something.

When I had that problem- Romeo awakening at an ungodly hour- called his breeder...She said to put sheet/blanket over crate like some have mentioned here. Also how about a sound machine right by his crate? That helped me tremendously. Also, I'd move his crate into your bedroom, sheet on the crate & lights out for you at the same time.

By any chance , is he spending alot of time in his crate during day when you are out?

You say he only piddles a little when you take him out at night. You might want to get a urine specimen & have vet run a urinalysis.

He's trying to tell you something.

Plus you can always call your breeder for input.

Good luck.

 I crate trained my Cavalier and she is going to be 10 in October.

I've had to crate her now and again and there were a few occasions where she would have a little tantrum.

I found that putting her crate in a place where she couldn't see me (opposite of what many here have said) and only giving her a stern "NO" and then leaving her be worked well.

Also, having water readily available to her in the crate is very important.

I do need to say though that I never crate trained my 2 cavs they have slept with me from day two. I used the techniques below for my cattle dog and they worked well which may say something about the difference in breeds.

Ali is right:-) and you should put an article of our clothing like PJS or something soft like a sweatshirt so he can snuggle and know you are near and make sure it's really comfortable and cozy in the crate.    Additionally , covering the crate with a sheet, towel means it's bedtime. Hope this helps!  Monika

I snuggle with Digby every night... Put the crate next to your bed and make sure it's cozy for him?

Well, that is probably what he wants.
