Hi all, when did your puppy start to sleep through the night? Also, how many hours can he sleep for?

Thanks!

IF I'm able to exercise and socialize my puppy properly during the day, by 10 weeks I'm usually getting a full night sleep.

Prior to that, I actually set my alarm for around 2 am and wake up my pup to go out for a quick pee/poo and then back to bed for the rest of the night. That way it's on my schedule and I can more easily get back to sleep until 6 or 7.

I think it was around 10 weeks when I finally was sleeping clear through the night. I'd still set my alarm very early, though, to get him outside. So I was getting less sleep than I normally do for awhile longer than that. It was probably around 4-5 months when I started going back to my "pre-Samson" sleep schedule.

My guy is on an internal alarm clock that I wish I could reset . If he got a lot of exercise, I might squeak an extra half an hour. Otherwise, on a normal day with normal exercise the night before, little dude is wanting to potty at 5:15-5:30. (We normally go to bed between 10-10:30) I don't have to get up for work til 6'ish, so I so wish I could get him to 6!

i think my pup (9 weeks old) could have slept
through the night but we were taking him
out every 2 hours. after the every 2 hour outing
was over our pup would wake one of us up
at 4:00 am to go out. going out at 4:00 am lasted
untill he was 8 months old.

as far as sleeping i don't remember my pup being
awake.

Sasha started sleeping through the night at about 10 or 11 weeks old, I can't quite remember. She has been out of her crate at night in my room since about 11 weeks or so. I trust her and I am a light sleeper. The only thing that has happened is one pair of cheap flip flops were eaten. They were made in China and I worried about it. She survived and I have been more diligent because of it. Of course, she is in her crate when I'm gone but at night, she sleeps. She moves around a bit. She will start off on her bed next to mine but will also jump up and sleep with me towards morning. I guess you can say she sleeps through the night although she is awake sometimes. She rarely needs out to pee now. Once in a while she will wake me up needing out but it's rare. I would say it's one day out of seven. Is this sleeping through the night? I consider it a yes but others might not. Just my opinion.
