How Long Can a Puppy “Hold it?”
Good Dogs! (08-24-2022) #6112 Carol Borden and Tracie discuss what is physically possible — and what is humane — in managing a young puppy’s potty needs. They agree that a puppy needs to be taken out every few hours when young and always before and after any activity. They stress the urgency of a puppy’s need to get outside to tinkle immediately upon awakening, eating or playing — and how taking him to the same spot every time and praising him will set him up for a lifetime of success.
