potty breaks

For those of you with young pups, how long can your pups go in between potty breaks at night. ? My two seem to only be able to go 3, sometimes 4 hrs inbetween at night. My two are only 9 weeks old. Is that pretty normal? Just wondering, I am feeling a little sleep deprived, lol. I know Otis can hold it longer that Milo though.

yes that sounds about right for a 9 week old pup- plus they may be waking each other during the night......

Tucker's 3 yrs. old now, so if I remember correctly he was around 14 - 15 weeks old before he could go most of the night without peeing. We'd take him out around 10 - 10:30 p.m. and he'd wake us around 5:30 - 6 a.m. to go outside and pee. You probably have a few more weeks before a longer night's sleep. DH would get up with Tucker during the night and I'd get up with him in the morning so DH could sleep a little longer.

I don't think that's uncommon from what I read on here. I got Brody at 10 weeks and he did sleep through the night (last night time potty around 10 PM), however his morning started way too early to suit me. I went with it and used the time to play with him before going to work, but I was very happy when the 5am wake-ups got later. I was definitely getting sleep deprived.

They do seem to go a lot when they are a puppy, small bladders and all. Picking up the water a few hours before bed might help and aside from that, it'll just take time for them to get on their 'schedule' and hopefully that won't include any midnight pees, although Gucci sometimes likes to make me take her out at night so she can sniff the bunny and squirrels and fun night smells in the lawn, not so much to pee..

Try to wear him out as much as possible before bed, walk or play, etc.

Yeah, I am def taking up the water early, as well as making their last meal earlier. Otis can hold it longer than Milo, of course once one wakes up, they both do, so they both get taken out. I try and set my phone for about the time I think they will need to go, rather than wait to hear them, and then it is too late. They are doing great, and they are so much fun, just miss my sleep. Hubby is home right now, so I will try and get some better pictures of them.
