Hi Scott, I'm totally with Diane on this one, take him out tons LOL! Puppies at 9 wks don't have a whole lot of control yet, and they aren't going to warn you ahead of time. Keeping an eye on him "most of the time" won't work well initially, it has to be ALL the time. Puppies sniff around when they have to go, so learn your puppy, any schedule will develop as you learn your puppy, they're all different. Good luck, and congrats on the new puppy!
