Courtney I took Rusty out sometimes 2-3 times from 11pm - 5am. I only had to do it for a couple of weeks. He was actually very easy to potty train and good about giving me cues he had to go. I was afraid he would want to stay on this schedule several times a night going out - but it really did only last a couple of weeks and he started to hold it longer. Good luck

What does "sooking" mean? Also, is this a male or a female? It doesn't really matter, but in that one sentence you referred to your puppy as "him", "her", and "it".

In any case, no - I would not keep a 7 week old puppy outside. There's nothing wrong with your puppy getting used to sleeping indoors. Our dogs have always slept indoors their entire lives. None of them have ever hated going outside.

Apoolutz Gunner is 16 weeks, he goes to bed (bed beside our bed) at 8:30, out again at 1:00ish and up at 5:00. I can't hold my pee all night so I don't expect him to either.

helensdisturbed I have never crated my pup ever, but that's my preference. During the night she sleeps for 12 hours, she's 6 months now and has never had an accident upstairs. She whines if she needs to go.

I want to know why she's in her crate so early as well?

My GSD slept in a crate at night from 10pm or 11pm until 5am from the time he was 11 weeks old until he was 6 months old. We woke up every couple of hours to take him outside to potty until he was about 14 weeks old. He was not crated during the day until he was 10 months old because my ex was unemployed and home all day.

My Dalmatian puppy has been crate free at night since he was 11 weeks old. I woke up every 4 hours to take him out to potty until he was about 14 weeks old. He is only crated during the day for 8.5 hours while I am at work.

This is the schedule we had....the book I read said the puppy can hold their peepee an hour for every month old they are....ours were 9 weeks when we got them, so we went out every two hours to start with...

GatorDog I leave my puppies out until 10-11pm, then outside once before bed and usually up at 6. My Malinois had problems holding it for longer than a few hours initially, so I would set an alarm for every 3 hours to take her out until she could hold it through the night.
