At what age does a puppy have control of its bladder? Remember, puppies can’t control their bladder until they’re about 16 weeks old. After that, in general they can only hold their bladder for the same number of hours as the number of months of their age plus one. So, a four-month-old puppy can only hold it for five hours.
What is a good potty schedule for a puppy? When you start to house train, follow these steps: Keep the puppy on a regular feeding schedule and take away their food between meals. Take the puppy out to eliminate first thing in the morning and then once every 30 minutes to an hour. Also, always take them outside after meals or when they wake from a nap.
When can a puppy hold its bladder for 8 hours? A two month old puppy can hold his bladder for up to 3 hours. Time increases an hour per month of age. At 6 months of age he will be able to hold his bladder for 7-8 hours (a work day). No dog of any age should be made to wait longer than 8 hours!
