    With Bruce I worked on the theory of 1 hour for every month.

    We put an alarm on for every 2 hours to 2 month, then 3 at 3 months, 4 at 4 months.

    After this you start to pick up on whether he wants to go or not. Bruce got to a point where he just looked at me when I went down as if to say 'not again mum I'm trying to sleep.'
    Then he just stopped getting out of bed for it. Since about 4 and a half months he goes all night. He is 6 months now.

    Thanks! I guess Jackson is ahead of the game- he is going 5- 6 hours at 3 months old. And I am waking him!

    I would leave him an hour longer then and see if you have to wake him.

    If you are having to wake him hes probably good now. That's how I did it with Bruce. Everyone is different. I was probably over cautious as he is the first dog we have had.

    Jackson is just adorable. Lexi just turned 6 months and she goes from about 10:00-6:45a.m. when I am ready to go downstairs. My husband used to take her out at 4:30 when he got up but she likes to sleep in and wait until I'm dressed . When she was 3 months old she went from 10:00pm -4:30 a.m.
