We recently got a 7 week old puppy. Our last puppy was 9 weeks old when we got him (a mutt) and could go 2 hours during the day on average before needing to go out. This new guy, Smokey, often goes 10-20min apart (sometimes up to an hour) unless he's sleeping and then 2-3 hours during the day and up to 5 at night. We've had him at home since Sunday afternoon. He's really smart and usually heads to the door when he needs to go but will frequently stop halfway there to squat as if he can't hold it long enough to get outside. Is his bladder too little or his attention span? (I am only referring to #1. He has not done #2 in the house since the first day). Currently he and our 1 yr old mutt, Geo, are separated most of the time with short periods of time so they can get to know each other (always supervised - but then Smokey is always supervised period). Geo loves Smokey a little too much. It's a bit overwhelming for the little guy.
