I had saved a week's vacation for when I brought my pup home. What I ended up doing was working some in the mornings and then going home for the rest of the day. That meant my 1 week's vacation I stretched into two weeks of partial days. By the end of that time, he could easily make it until my son or I came home at lunch to let him out and feed him lunch. He has amazing control though . even at 8 weeks, even though I took him out 2 or 3 times during the night, he only plopped down on the ground outside until maybe the last potty time out so I just cut them out and took him out around 4 or 5 am.
