Husky having troubles sleeping

Our 5.5 month old Siberian named Mila has recently gotten into a trend of not sleeping throughout the night. She is primarily an outdoor dog and we have a 5'x10' kennel with a nice kennel floor and doghouse. For the last two months she has had no troubles sleeping from 10 or 11 pm until 6 am. A week and a half ago we got her spayed as well has had her side claws removed. Ever since then she has been in a trend of waking up at 4 am every morning. This morning when she woke up I let her out to go potty, she pooped and pee'd, and then refused to go back into her kennel. She started barking, jumping around in a circle, and wants to play. I finally got her to go back in and I headed back to sleep(tried to at least). She started yipping (a bark every 10 seconds or so) mixed with whining, for about the next 45 minutes before we finally got her to go back to sleep. So now its 4:45 and then she woke up again at 6, her usual time, and the barking started again.
After the vet trip we were told to lay back on the exercise so her wounds could heal, so we recently just started getting her back into long walks/rollerblading trips. We walk her every night and every morning, and she is pretty much spent when we get back. My wife is a nurse so she's home quite a bit during the day, but when she works day shifts and I'm working, we have friends that come let her out at noon to get some exercise.
Her feeding times are a cup at 6 AM and a cup at 6 PM.
Last night we took her on a walk/jog at 8. From when we got back to when I put her in her kennel for the night at 11, she just slept on the patio. I'm wondering if she is getting too much rest and then fully wakes up around 4. Before I put her in for the night I try to get her to potty.. She will usually pee but not poop. The main reason this bugs me so much is because we live in town and I don't want cranky neighbors because of a yipping dog at 4 AM. We also have a fenced in backyard but unless we are outside she doesn't do a whole lot but lay by the door and rest. We've also had her in the crate inside and she still wakes up at 4.
She is just getting off of antibiotics now from her surgery, but I don't see those as a cause? I could be wrong.
Any help or advice is greatly appreciated!

Change of seasons...is there anything that might be waking her? Like a raccoon, a rooster, birds...the trash man, school buses...
I'm gonna warn you...ours started as an outdoor dog. Now he sleeps on the foot of the bed
And sleeps like a baby all night long.
