Interrrupted Sleep

I adopted a 2 year old SharPei from a shelter 6 months ago. She has really improved a lot and is a beautiful well behaved dog. The only problem i have with her at the moment is that she refuses to sleep at night. She has a pillow and duvet inside my room where she used to sleep all night with no issues. the last week she has just not been as good as usual. She has a " tantrum"  when she needs to go to sleep kicking her bed all over the room. She wants to sleep on the bed with me but it is too difficult and uncomfortable for my husband and myself so i do not allow this. When she eventually does fall asleep it lasts only 2 hours and then she is up and wants to go out etc. I have tried leaving her outside when she keeps waking up like this but then she cries and scrathces the door until i let her in again and then 30 min later she wants to go out again..... My Male SharPei sleeps all night with no issues but she does wake him too and then he too gets restless. I don' t want to leave them out at night but I really need to find a solution for this. Please help. I read about DAP diffusers, will it help?

Try a DAP diffuser first.
