Thread: Puppy night time help

    Question Puppy night time help

    After 5 nights of little to no sleep, my husband gave me the night off. He was going to wake up and take the puppy out every 3 hours. Well he took her out at ten, put her in her crate and she fell right asleep.(first time we ever put her in her crate without her wining or wimpeding) well he didn't wake up to take her out again till 3:50am. Then again at 6:50 when he went to work. She never wimpered or cryed, he actually had to wake her up to get her to go out. No accidents eiather. What iam wondering is, is almost 6 hours at night to long to wait to take her out? I was really mad at him for not taking her out sooner. I don't want her to be in pain from holding it.

    How old is she again?

    But to allay any fears, there is no pain associated with "holding it" - she will just go in cage before that happens! My latest puppy was similarly unruly in his crate (and still is, at times) but was fine for six hours overnight by 12 weeks.

    I would assume that if she woke up and needed to go out earlier she would have cried and woke him up. I'm not sure how old she is but the older they get the less they have to go so maybe she will start being able to wait that long.

    My Silva has slept through the night since she has been about 4 months, now she goes 10-12 hours at night sometimes we have to "drag" her out of our bed to get her out, lol! She knows when she has to go and will let us know! Good luck with the training!

    If she did not cry or mess in her crate, she is probably ready for longer intervals than 3 hours. What a good little girl! (Lucky for your husband he did not get a mess when he woke for his jobs!)

    Boy are you lucky! Sounds like your baby is doing great! I have one almost 4 month old who wouldn't dream of going in her crate, no matter how long she has to hold it, and one who goes in her crate about 4 nights out of 7, no matter how late I stay up to take her out "one last time". I've fed her earlier and earlier, she's just a little pig. Doesn't bother her at all to poop in her crate and go back to sleep. Guess each puppy is different. (Wish I had two like Gertie).

    There is nothing nicer than two sweet Bully girls, unless it's THREE sweet Bully girls!!
