no potty overnight?
Can my 8 week old yorkie mix (maltese yorkie) who weighs about 2 lbs now hold his urine overnight, if we take H20 away around 8pm?
Im asking because right now, in our room crated he wants to go potty about every 2 hours (and turns into play usually twice a night too), and when he is in the laundry room at night (laundry room gated is his room while we are at work during the day or have to leave him otherwise) he goes from 10pm-2am ish on average without peeing (then persists to whine and cry from then on for a while which is how i know he was up to use the pee pad). I am going to put him on my nightstand in his crate tonight, and wonder if I should get up with him when he whines in the night to take him pee, or just shush him. I can take him to the pee pad, no attention then back to crate, but then hes awake and doesnt settle easily, and we can only take the whining by our bed for so long.

Right now I have a litter of 6 that just turned 8 weeks today, since they been 6 weeks they been sleeping in a good size crate, I feed them their last dinner of the night at 9pm, water and let them potty in the day pen until 11pm, then put them in the crate and they sleep all night in the crate in my room until 5 am, when I get up and transfer them to the day pen again, they hold their pee and poo until then.
by the time they are 12 weeks and go home they will be fully crate and pad trained, make sure your baby is fed his last meal of the night about 9, because they need the extra sugar for the night.
