Bowel and bladder maturity

When does the urinary system of a Havanese puppy become mature? How about the bowels? When mature, how often to Hav's have to go every day?

I'm not sure there are any hard and fast rules on either of these. Just as with human children, there is a LOT of variation. Someone recently posted a record of how many times their Havanese eliminated in the course of the day from puppyhood to adulthood. I don't think most of us track it that closely. Heck, I don't track it that closely for myself! I couldn't tell you exactly how many times I went to the toilet even today!

That said, all three of mine (ages 9 months to 7 years) USUALLY poop twice a day, occasionally 3 times. My guess is that we let them out to potty approximately 5 times a day including first thing in the morning and last thing at night. The girls seem to want to pee more often than Kodi. Often he'll humor me with a few drops if I tell him to pee, but you can tell he doesn't really need to, he's just doing it because I told him to.

So much of a pee-poo schedule has to do with diet. Dry kibble requires more water and is harder on the kidneys. I feed Tux (male, 5 months old) a frozen raw diet which consist mostly of meat, organs, bone meal and some vegetarian additions for balance. (Primal frozen nuggets). His poo is teeny weeny and he MIGHT go twice a day but sometimes it's only once in the AM. Because his diet is raw and has no or little grain, there is very little waste that must be expelled. I feed him 3 X per day. During the day, he pees about every 2-3 hours except at night and he sleeps continuously for 9 hours. My first Havanese (female) pooped once a day, and had to be made to go outside to pee but she only needed to go twice at the most!!!
