Default Wakes up twice every night

I've had Abby for about a week now, and I haven't been able to sleep because she wakes up two times for to go pee and sometimes poo. I always make her go before bedtime and I play with her too, so that she might sleep more but it doesn't work. I understand She is a puppy and it will take time to train her, I just wonder if there are better ways of training her. Abby is a very smart girl and sometimes she does make it to her designated potty spot , and sometimes she doesn't , which means that Abby goes inside the house 😟 anyway thank you in advance!! I love this group and am glad I found it. Abby is my first dog and I want to do things right for her

How old is Abby? How close to bedtime do you feed her and give her water? It does take time - and you are fortunate that she is waking you up in order to go out, rather than just quietly messing in the house. Is there a consistent time when she gets up - you may want to set an alarm and get her outside a little earlier so that she does not have an accident.

A puppy is just like any other baby - it takes time for their bodies to mature. It sounds like she is eager to please you - remember to praise her for going outside!!!!

There will be more challenges as she grows - chewing/mouthing for example. Try to remember that she is a baby and is just learning. Do enroll her in puppy classes - professionals can be very helpful. Remember, like human children, puppies thrive on love - not punishment. Try to set things up so that she is successful. She will be all grown up before you know it!

I was going to ask her age, also. Young puppies cannot hold it very long. Are you crating her? Leash her to go potty and take her to her designated spot each time. Praise, praise, praise. As her body matures, she will be able to hold it longer. I remember those sleep deprived days. It's like having an infant.

Abby is a little more than three months. We feed her 3-4 hours before bedtime, then I take her out, play with her. Yes she gets up at about 1 and 5 , she is a very good girl and sometimes goes to her designated spot on her own and is always praised. It is very much like having a human child , but totally worth it, thank you!!

I just got a 3 month old puppy and we crate him so that he has his own space, he learns routine, and it stops finding messes in places you don't want them. We've had him for 3 nights, two days, and the last two days he's woken us up and not messed in his crate (some pooping issues during the day). But he's learning fast!

Anyways, he woke us up twice last night to go potty. We take away water a couple of hours before bed and feed him 2-3 hours before bed.

How often are you feeding her as well? Pups this age should be fed 3x/day.

That is awesome about the puppy! Did I miss that post? What Breed is your pup? Yes I would totally agree with the crating, and yes it is like having an infant in your house.

I didn't post about him yet - I will! He's a GSD/Rottie mix, 3 mos old, in the rescue/shelter system most of his life, not leash trained, not used to the outdoors, not started on potty training. We've had him 3 days and he's picking up fast though!

I highly recommend crate training. It is a great tool. Helps with house breaking. It is a safe place, when you can't watch her. If she is ever recovering from an injury or illness, it keeps the pup quiet. Dogs generally love their crates. It should always be a positive experience. Let the pup go in, while the door stays open. Treat. Let her get used to it.
