Q. My german shepherd is 2yrs old she moans a lot at night and we can't sleep

A. you might have two problems causing this - first she is not spayed, that might be the reason why she is like this. secondly - she might not get enough outside/exercise time during the day, so she has plenty of energy left during the night.

Get her out 3 times a day, two of those have to be long walks (30+ minutes) and get her spayed, i hope this will resolve your problem.
