    Default Question-Last Potty Break of the Night

    Just curious about this, Joey will be 2 years old May 31st and she seems to be able to "hold it" a really long time, just wondering if that is normal. Housebroken since really young (thank God) and run of the house since about 10 months old. She will tell me when she has to go out, which is NOT as often as I would think....but what do I know. Is it possible that she will harm herself by not "going" more often??

    So, just so I can better understand can you tell me how long your pups "hold it"

    Thanks!!

    I put my guys out around 8:15-8:30pm for their last potty, and we get up around 6:30am so that's around 10 hours that they are able to hold it at night. During the day they want out several times, but it's not always to go potty...

    @ddnene Thanks! Is it different between girls and boys? So it shouldn't concern me if she goes out at 630pm and not again until around 6AM? In the morning it's no like she is rushed either, I have to wake her up to go out and I only do that because I walk outside then until around 7

    Also....should I WAKE her before I go to bed and make her go out? I don't want her "holding it" so long if it could hurt her...

    the most we've asked our kids to hold it is about 10 hours overnight. They are not allowed to drink after that last potty break before turning in for the night.

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    I take mine out right before I go to sleep. He is male. My belief is to take him more often than he asks. Holding it is not always good for bladder health. It could lead to weakened bladder muscles or uti. Mine goes out about 4-5 times a day.

    @KimDe Thank you! We will begin a new routine, wake her up, like it or not, and out to pee before bed. I was starting to think that her holding it so long could have health issues down the road when she is older so better change routine now. I swear she is like a camel !!! She HATES being awakened and dragged outside but we will make a go of it Thank you again !

    @rufasim Thanks! Weekends pretty much same as weekdays, out first thing unless we are having coffee in bed and she will NOT move, just snuggles, then 2 or 3 times for the day. But as I mentioned I will start different routine so her bladder doesn't get week like @KimDe said, Joey is part camel for sure......

    @KimDe Boy do I feel stupid......I will NO LONGER allow her to hold it EVER!!! Even if she is sound asleep.

    Thank you very very much!!!!!

    I really should clarify that Joey is great about telling me she needs to go out so I figured that if she does not need to go then I would not wake her up to go out.....this will change so she does not hold it so long over night

    Our guys go out for last potty at 9:00 - 9:15 PM every night, I wake them if sleeping and then first out is 5:00AM when we get up for the work day. Weekends, Cheli wakes me up each morning by 6;30 AM so they longest they hold is overnight abd about 9 hours. When we are home with them... we take them out about every 3 hours for a potty run
