Hello you dear lovely Poodle lovers .. you know, there are days that I like to come here and just read your chat back and forth with each other..
How kind and sweet and patient you always are.
How well controlled you are when someone is obviously not nice and you remain so very nice.
It is soothing and a balm to sadness and crankiness just to be here .. so thank you for that !

Here is the question my husband insists that I ask ..
How long do you comfortably leave your dog between walks.
Here, we had to go down the elevator and cross the street to a good place for Pup to pee or on down 2 blocks to the parks where he ran loose and did whatever he had to do.
Living in a house again, we will be out in the car, exploring, etc and leaving our dog at home sometimes.
My husband is reluctant to be tied to the house again with a dog that needs us , so he wants to know what you have to say.( deciding if he even wants another dog again)

How long do you leave your dog between his "potty breaks" ?

As always , thank you very much for your help.

Lily is a small standard. Because I have a work schedule that is different on each day of the week according to my class schedule we sometimes leave the dogs for quite a while. If I have a long day they go out at about 10:00 AM just before we both leave. They have to wait until about 7:00 for my boyfriend to get home. If one of them was sick and we thought they needed to go out more often we have an arrangement with a neighbor to come see them.

Both my dogs are big with big bladders and excellent holding capacity. I suppose that may change when they are older. I should add that Lily would rather hold than go out in rain and sometimes I think she is sneaky and doesn't do anything when I send her, so probably she would easily go longer than that although I don't like that idea.

Lily also likes to sleep in. If we don't have to set an alarm she will easily stay in bed until 9 AM after a last night trip outside between 10 and 11. As long as the house breaking is solid you shouldn't have a problem going out to work without worrying or taking a day trip with no accidents with a spoo.

I am so impressed !
Pup probably went longer when he was younger but since we were home together, he was on a schedule of whenever he wanted to go out, I let him out.
Here it was about walking 2 blocks to a park and standing out in the rain or heat etc.
Of course, here he was already an older dog and I always worried about stress of making him hold it etc..
He never ever had an "accident" in the house .. even in his last days.

My Remington will hold it too... I am gone a minimum of 9 hours with some days being close to twelve. I always feel bad, and we play for a long time when I get home, but there are some days that are just long.

I believe there is some evidence linking kidney and bladder issues - especially stones - to holding the urine for long periods, so I try to make sure mine get out fairly frequently. Last trip is after 9pm, first trip usually before 8am. During the day, they go out every three hours or so. But if you are in an apartment, and thinking of a small dog, it is possible to tach a dog to use a litter tray, which would mean you could safely leave him longer - and which would certainly be easier than taking the trip you describe every hour when house training a puppy!

i have a last pee break at 10 pm and they are out by 6 or 7 am.
during the day they are not left more than 4-5 hours because i hate leaving them unattended.

I try not to leave them for more than 6 hours as adults. Puppies and older dogs I haven't had to deal with yet. If I'm home it's more like every 3-4 hours.

I take Finnegan for a half hour walk each morning before I come to work. Twice a week I have a dog walker that comes in between 3-4 to take him out. On the other days when I am at work, he holds it for 9-10 hours and has held it for as long as 12. I don't like that and it has only been on a rare occasion.

When I am at home, I still let him out every couple of hours and make sure that the last thing I do before heading up to bed is to take him out and wait until he pees.

Of course, when they are puppies they have to go out more often until their bladder grows. When Finnegan was first with me, I was fortuante to be able to go home at lunch and walk him. It really only took a couple of months until he could hold himself all day regularly without an accident.

I grew up with a miniature poodle who was basically on a similar schedule.
