Personally I never take water up from a puppy. If they are being fed dried food then they need to drink, even if they need to go out at night it is better that they have access to water. My puppies are still having a night time feed and I would not expect to put them on 3 feeds until they are around the 12 weeks mark.I would not expect a puppy to go through the night until they are between 3 and 4 months old. I have the remainder of a litter here (nearly 9 weeks) and they go to bed at 10.00pm and are awake and needing to go out around 5am. Puppies can take up to week to really settle in their new homes and in my experience it is better to let them settle, get them housetrained during the day and do a little training but just put the collar on to get them used to it. 8 weeks is very early to be lead trained, but that is only my opinion.
