    Default5 month old foster & housetraining

    Okay this is going to seem like a stupid question, but this is my first go at having a foster.

    How frequently should I be taking her out overnight? I got up 3 times Saturday - Sunday with her. But lordy was I tired, I am not accustomed to getting up like that.

    So last night, I took her out for last pee @ 10:30. I set my alarm to go off at 2:00 AM for a trip out, which was 3 1/2 hours. She did just fine, no pee or poop in the crate. From there she slept until my alarm went off at 5:45 AM (3 3/4 hours).

    Is 3-4 hours overnight okay?

    Thanks.

    My pretty girl, Lexi!

    hmm... by 5 months my pups were sleeping the night. I think you might be able to wean her down to once a night.... try waking up twice for the next few days, and then just work yourself to once? Does she go alot during the day ? how big is she ?

    Thanks for the info. I wasn't sure since my Lexi was 1 year old when I got her & she slept through the night from her first night with me.

    According the rescue she is 22 lbs, but I kind of doubt that. She looks really tiny compared other labs I've seen at the same age.

    I think I do the once a night thing for a few days & then try the whole night. If necessary, I'll go back to up one time with her.

    My pretty girl, Lexi!

    I'm glad she is doing well with the crate. I think once a night should be ok too...how has she slept the past few nights?
