5 month old Havanese/ Sleeping & Peeing.

We have a 5 month old Havanese beautiful boy. He is crate trained, and we are currently mastering the potty training. He was sleeping all through the night up until 3 nights ago...

The last three nights he has been whining every 2 or 3 hours, so I get outta bed take him outside and he pees, which is great!

But should I be taking him out everytime he whines cuz hes gotta pee or should I ignore him and make him hold it? It has just been the last three nights, so I don't know if hes learnt that he can go pee when he wants or should he respect my sleeping hours?!?! I dont know?!?!

Keep taking him out. You might consider limiting his water supply before bed or taking it up after a certain time.

I wouldn't think that, just because nothing else has changed about him, eats almost TOO good haha, drinks LOTS he is a lil piggy, hes a happy lil guy playing all the time, just that he has to pee in the middle of the night. If they have infection does that affect appetite?

That's exactly what I was going to say. So long as he is going ,you know he needs to go. Better to be safe than sorry.

Be sure just to take him out to do his business and put him right back. Don't make too much of a fuss about it, or he will want to keep doing it. Unfortunately, Dugan gets up before 7:00 every morning because my husband created a cookie monster who wants to get up, potty and get his cookies. I know he could wait, but he really just wants a snack.

The fact that he was doing fine all night up until 3 nights ago, and now suddenly he needs to go so frequently does sound like it could need checking out re: infection. They can still eat and play with a mild urinary infection. Does he need to go out more frequently in the day also? I would just monitor day and night for a couple of days, and if it doesn't improve, might be worth a visit to the vet.

I took his water away about 3 hours before bedtime, he only had to go once last night so that is a HUGE improvement, I let him out every 45 minutes whether he has to go or not just because hes not fully potty trained, so I automatically let him out lots. I will keep an eye out, but since I took his water away 3 hours before bedtime and he only had to go once compared to 3 or 4 times previsouly is better!

Glad to hear he did better last night. Every couple hours at night wears you out quick!

Just for your comparison our 5 1/2 month old pup has to go out once in the middle of the night as well. We also pick up the water 2-3 hours before bedtime. She is pretty small (6lbs). Hopefully someday she'll be able to go 7 hours or more but we can handle once a night. At what age do some of your dogs go all night without relieving themselves?
