I agree with Maverick in that a pup quickly learns to whine to get out even if it is only for a walk to the potty place and back in. I treated mine like human kids and waited a few minutes to see if they really needed to go out or just bored. By 10 wks, both could hold themselves from 7:30 to 2:00AM when we get up. So, for us, slept through the night with no accidents. But like Outwest suggested, when you do take them out, keeps lights off and sounds to a min. Just go do their business and back to crate to finish the night.

I only ever took them out if they whined. Each dog is different. I had one that had to go out 2-3 times that first week, one that slept through the night the first night, and the others maybe once for a bit....Honestly I only ever got up with them if they were whining and even then I let them whine for a few minutes before I went to get them.

Oh and sometimes even my adults would request a potty break at night, although very rarely and only after hitting their senior years or if they weren't feeling well. Mine aren't allowed on the bed, but they put there paws on the side and either whine or in Emma's case she walks her paws up and down the side of the mattress until one of us wake up...

I somewhat agree with Maverick James but with a proviso. You don't want to jump up as soon as the puppy whines--that will teach it how to get you to let it out. But if you give the pup no water one hour before bed, potty it and put it straight into crate it should be able to make it through the night. I ignore all whimpering if pup hasn't gone to sleep yet. But if pup has been asleep for several hours and starts whimpering, I think it should get a response. They need to know that if they ask, their needs will be met. Most puppies can sleep and enjoy sleeping straight through the night. Like e eryone says, each dog is different.

Levi was close to 10 weeks when I got him. I let him out once during the night the first night but after that I would just let him out before I went to bed (I would go to bed a later 11-12) and I would get up early to let him out.

I've been confused about how often to take our puppy out as well. He's 8.5 weeks, we've had him for 4 nights...and he's gone out 6-7 times a night, starting around 10pm to 7am. I'm exhausted! I'm afraid to ignore her whines, afraid she'll have an accident in her crate. Maybe I"m taking her out too often?

How long after she starts whining do you take her out?

Zoey came home at nine weeks. The first night I took her out around 3am. From that night on she slept from 11:39/12 until 6/6:30ish. (She now sleeps much later) Back then I took her water up about an hour before taking her out for the last time (around 11/11:30). We also had a ticking clock under her crate mat the first week and a half she was home.
