Default When do spoo puppies sleep through the night?

Well, Begley is 9 weeks old today, and he's been at home with us for six nights now. Overall, I think he's doing great! Only 3 housetraining accidents so far in total, with none the last two days as we all adapt to each other's schedules and my husband and I learn to read Begley's body language. Begley even started ringing the bell on the door last night to go out (it took him about two seconds to figure out he could also ring the bell to go out to play... now working on adjusting those expectations).

For our nighttime routine, we've been letting him out the last thing before bed, about 10:00, and have so far scheduled 1:30-ish outside breaks overnight. We don't mind the 1:30 breaks, but would prefer to sleep through the night as soon as possible. When is a reasonable age to reasonably expect that Begley might sleep through the night? Or, when should we not schedule in the mid-night potty break, and give it a try to see if he makes it? I don't want to rush things and set us all up for failure, but I am a person who likes her sleep! I'd love to hear when your spoo puppies were first able to hold it through the night (~7.5 hours)? I've read everything from 8 or 9 weeks to not until 4 - 6 months, and don't know what to think.

I think I read a rough guide of 1 hour per month of age on the potty breaks. I tend to go to bed late (11 ish) , and my husband is up early (4 ish), and he got up at 1-2 am for a few months to potty outside...
By 6 months, Spike could go from 11 pm to 6 am.

Every puppy is different so there is no hard and fast certainty. However the 1month = 1 hour, plus add an extra hour is a good guide.

Harry is 6 months and brought him home at 11 weeks. The first few weeks were sleepless hell. Initially I had to wake up twice a night and sometimes three times a night. My nite security guard thought me a bit odd but got used to my regular nite walks with a tiny puppy. Over time it improved to one nite trip and now we can do roughly 6-7 hours. However am still tired as so I have pre bed time naps when he has a nap. Plus Sunday afternoon is a guaranteed afternoon siesta when he has his afternoon nap.

Sorry if the news is less than what you want to hear but the pain now will result in benefits. Harry is crate trained and has not had an accidents in many many weeks. It's all paying off. So hang in there!!!

Thanks sarahmurphy and Harrymummy! Sounds like my husband and I should be ready for a while longer enjoying the mid-night potty breaks (and be grateful that we're only having to do one!). I'm still going to hope that he's one of those wonderful quick learners and wants to sleep all night sooner rather than later, but will mentally prepare for the other scenario. Here's hoping for some mild winter weather until Begley's settled in for sleeping all night!

Abby was 7 weeks when she came home and was sleeping through the night with no accidents in the crate. I think we were just really lucky though with her. If she does REALLY need to go then she will stand up in her crate and whine (maybe 2x month this happens if she has a upset tummy). I wish she felt the floor was as important as her crate....the brat! : ) Every puppy is so different! Hope you got a fast learner too. Begley sure is cute by the way.

I am a lazy trainer as far as night time house training. My dogs sleep with me at night and I've never had a puppy have an accident on the bed, or get me up during the night. The last puppy started at 5 weeks and the latest, the poodle, at 9 weeks.

When Vegas was a puppy I was taking him out at 2am up until he was about 4 months. When I got Cairo I began loving sleep and made him sleep through the night, we had no issues and he was 3 months.

Hi! Our dog is a Mini Poodle, so I don't know if that makes any difference, but she had to get up twice per night the first week we had her. Then she was sleeping in a crate a few meters away from us. The second week I moved the crate next to our bed with the door open so I could reach in and pet her, and after we did that she slept right through the night and has done since. I think in our case the getting up was more due to her feeling lonely rather than having to go to the toilet, although she did go when we let her out. She is now 4 months old and sleeps in her open bed in the opposite end of our bedroom, and she's never had any accidents at night. I don't know if this helps at all, but I thought I'd share how we have done it. Good luck with your new puppy! He's a little stunner!

I had Aria sleeping through the night by 12 weeks. I let her get me up once in the middle of the night at first but quickly began ignoring her cries because I didn't want her getting into the habit of getting up in the middle of te night. Once she realized I wasn't going to get up because she was crying she started sleeping through the night and we have had no problems since

My trainer suggests setting an alarm and getting your puppy used to ou only responding to the alarm and not their cries, and ecause dogs can't tell time you can start setting it an hr later every couple days and then eventually it will eliminate that middle of the night potty break
