quick question concerning puppy...

Post by dirtybir » Wed, 17 Oct 2001 05:13:50



I know I came accross this in a few readings and on t.v. and other places,
but oddly my brain is not remembering it...

how long after eating should a pup go to the bathroom.  I thought it was X
minutes/week old it is, and now I'm thinking months old, etc... meaning
really how long can they hold it?

I'm going to search through the books that I have, which isn't many, as I
can borrow as many books I want from hubbys workplace concerning this.  I'm
sure I saw it on a dog training program, right after dogs with jobs.  but
haven't seen it since.

anyhow, thanks...

It's not a time issue, it's a change of activity. Every time your puppy changes
activity (napping, playing, sleeping, etc) it should go outside. It's a lot of
up and down at this age but well worth it in the long run.
Good luck

In my very little experience...it's 15 minutes after a drink, 30 minutes
after eating.  I also observed what Nitecatz said....

Obviously the pup isn't processing that water or food that quickly, it's
just pushing out the previous! but I thought I'd better say that incase I
sound too stupid.
Sammy will be 9 weeks tomorrow.

I'd be interested in what others say!
There's a definite sign that Sammy needs the toilet.  He has "POO" written
all over his face when he's gonna do it!  My face has "ohmygodwhatdoIdonow"
written all over it.  T'here's NO time between when they wanna, and when
they're gonna.

Tell me about it, Licorice stops just short of running into the door and
starts to squat, admittedly though, she seems to be very bright and hasn't
had a 'poop' accident inside for a few days! and hasn't had any accidents
inside her crate either!  we will be bell training her eventually, when she
is fully housebroken...

That won't teach the pup to ask to go out...

That's because you're mishandling his HOWESbreaking.
