We have 2 eight month old EB puppies, a brother and sister. Their names are Bulldozer and Blossom. We did the every hour or two schedule for the first month we had them, they were 10 weeks old when we got them. We gradually stretched it out by increasing it by an hour every week or two, so they would learn to hold. Their 1st walk was 6 am , eat at 8 am, crated for 10 mins to let their tummy settle, then out again, they went out every one or two hours, during the day, ate again at 2 pm and at 8 pm, I take their water away around 8 or 9 pm, and they went for their last walk at 11 or 11:30 pm. For the first few months, I also set my cell phone alarm for 2 am, just for a pee, but was able to stop that at 5 months old. They were totally trained at 5 months old, and by then could hold 4 or 5 hours at a time. Their schedule now since they were 5 or 6 months old is first walk in the morning at 6 am, to relieve after the night, eat at 7 am, we still take them out about 15 to 20 minutes after they eat, the rest of the day, is out about every 4 or 5 hours, so around 12 noon, 5 pm, eat again at 7 pm, and we go for a walk around the block usually after dinner, and their last walk at 11 or 11:30 pm.
