Early morning waking HELP!

Sadie CAN sleep all night long...she was doing it at the breeders and she did it her first night home. She's only been with us for three nights but last night and the night before, she got up to pee at 4 a.m.
No problem IF she'd go back in her crate and sleep but she whines continually and just wants to be up and playing. When will this end?? She gets sleepy early in the night, at about 7-7:30 and we'd love to keep her awake but it's impossible so we just let her sleep and take her out at about 10 p.m., put her in her crate for the night but then we have a 3 month old puppy who wants to get up a 4 a.m.
ANY suggestions are greatly welcomed! Maybe we need to make sure she naps more during the day??

Well the worse thing you can do is give in to her, you know she doesn't need to potty since you just took her out so I hate to say this but you are just going to have to let her cry it out. If you give in you are teaching her that if she crys she will get out.

Is the crate next to your bed? If so just tap on it and tell to Hush or It's Okay whatever you want to use be consistent with what you say
