    Default Meet MAX our new Family Pet

    Hello all, I would like to introduce max to this community, he is our first pet in the family, I have 2 kids 9 and 7 and they love him.

    I would like to ask you for some advice, Max is 7-8 weeks old, we are keeping him in a wire kennel, he is doing really good and learning to go poop outside. During the day we are taking him out to pee after he wakes up. We had have couple of accidents in the house but I guess is normal. we usually keep him on his kennel when nobody is watching him. as soon as we take him out he pees but once in the house he does again, even some poop accidents.

    My wife is not happy about it, but I keep explaining to her that he is a puppy and will learn. My questions is how old or about at what age I can expect for him to learn and hold it, he is only 7-8 weeks.

    Thanks

    Oh my word, look at that cuteness, I can't even stand it! Max is beautiful - he's still very young - he needs time to learn the potty routine, but he'll get the hang of it. Please just be patient with him, at that age they can really only hold it for a few hours at a time.

    My whole heart, Tyson.

    Generally they can hold it for 1 hour per month of age plus 1 hour. So at 8 weeks he could realistically hold it for up to 3 hours. A rule of thumb for that age is to take them out every 2 hours and then after eating, playing and waking up from naps. However, all pups are different so your experience may vary.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Those wrinkles are TOO MUCH!

    He's still very young so I wouldn't stress out too much about it, he'll figure it out.

    I found what worked best with Vader was to keep him on a strict schedule. It's gotten to the point where if it hits potty time and I sort of forget, he'll stand at the door and stare at me like "Hey dude, come on. I gotta do some business.."
    The force is strong with this one...
