Making it through the night?

At what age should I expect milo to make it through the night without going out to the bathroom? He goes in his crate at 10:30 but is up at 1:30am to go tee tee. he goese right back to the crate but is up at 5:30-5:45 for good! Ugh! Am I actually training him to get up in the middle of the night by taking him out? If I could just get 7 solid hours I'd be back to the woman my hubby wants!! Help!

Oh, you and Milo have come a long ways in just a few nights!!!!

What time do you take his water away? Does he go potty right before you put him in his crate?

Hilary - is he asking to go out at 1 or just making noise & you take him out. Try to get him to settle back down without taking him out of the crate & he might just settle down & sleep till AM. Also - take the water up around 7pm and make sure he goes a few times before going to bed. He might be getting up at 1:30 cause you are taking him out. good Luck.

Cheryl, Thank you! We have come a long way with still a ways to go!All I needed was this forum full of advice and support! There is still SOME crying but I actually feel like I am crate training him now not crate torturing!

We take all food and water away around 6pm. I feel bad because my whole family takes him on a walk after dinner and he has got to be thirsty! My hubby takes him for a short walk right before we put him in the crate for the night. What do you think?

Can I also just add that it is so amazing to me that all of these pictures on this sight of these adorable dogs are so different! How can one breed have so many different look?! They are all so cute!!!!

Laurie,

that's what I am afraid of - that he is training me to take him out! he is just Making noise and I am taking him out.


We are still so new at this crate training thing - just 3 decent nights (if you knew my nightmare before!) that I worry he will revert back to his old nightime ways if I don't take him out.

Hilary - they do NOT want to soil their bed so if he is just crying for attention, he will quiet down. If he is REAL persistant, then maybe he does need to go out. As you said about there being so many different looks for he Havs., each one is different and it is just possible that he has a smaller bladder & just needs to grow. I would try what Reece said - put your Tshirt or underwear (Logan's favorite!!) in the crate at night.
Also, if he does take a long walk, he does need to get some water. Even if you put an ice cube or two in his bowl!
It will get better - I can promise you that!! Just like kids they have their stages that they go thru. Keep us up to date which how it is going.

Havee was sleeping through the night from day 1, we kept his crate in our room to sleep. We tried to put the crate in the other bedroom with the door closed recently, and that is when he decided to get up 1 or 2 times during the night

Last night we put him back in our room, and he slept all through the night! Not one wimper out of him He was very restless though. That is when I know that he really has to go when he's in his crate.

He never cries when he's in his crate, so when he does, I know it's for real and he has to go out.

Question Havs looking different

Just read what Hillary wrote about everyone Havs looking quite different. Thats a question I have been asking myself to. How can 1 breed of dog look so different? I don't even know what a Havanese dog is sapposed to look like anymore after seeing everyones pictures..lol

I mean, aside from color and size, why do so many of them look different? Could it be some are not 100% purebred Havs? If my Mango grows up not to look like a havanese, I might be a bit disapointed ...hmmmm... Anyone have any thoughts on this topic??

Ryan, it is true that many Havs look "different" but in general it is usually their colorings and hair length/style that might look different. The standard is a little flexible about height and weight, but a room full of Havs will mostly look alike.

Our Sammy was bred in Hungary and I've been learning that Hungary, and other countries too maybe, dont' have the same ways of breeding that Can. or the U.S. do. There are quite a few places there that mix but will insist they are purebred. Sammy seems to have a bit of Maltese in him, though his personality and play is very much Hav. We will likely never be sure whether he is a mix or simply the runt of a Hav litter, but no matter. We love him to bits.

The pics can be deceiving too. Some Havs are cut down, shaved, lying down and look bigger, wet, etc.... I've seen up to 8 Havs at one time and they look very similar except for their colorings.
