Default How often does your Yorkie pee??

Princess is 14 months old and she pees every 2 hours (unless she drinks water, then I take her out again in half an hour).. is this normal?

Since it is summer now, she doesn't need to pee as much, so I take her out every 2.5 hours..

She hasn't made any mistakes by peeing on the carpet, but she doesn't really tell me when she needs to go, I just automatically take her out every 2 hours. Does your Yorkie tell you when she/he needs to pee?

Mine respond to "Do you have to go potty?" and then they do a little circle dance. You might actually be "training" her to go every 2 hours. At that age she really should be able to hold it longer than that. If she is just going out and squatting once then I would just slowly lengthen the time up to say 4 hours. If she goes out and squats more than once I would have her urine tested to rule out a bladder or kidney infection (but it doesn't sound like that is the problem or she would be peeing in your house).

A lot of people hang bells on the door and the dogs actually ring them to go out!

Yeah, ever since she was a puppy, I've been taking her out every 2 hours so she is pretty used to it..I guess I will slowly start to increase it to 3 hours.. hopefully she isn't so used to it that she goes on the carpet

For sure - the older they get - the less often they pee.

I also take my dogs out every two hours or so, and if I faithfully do this, they rarely have an accident in the house.

They aren't good about telling me they need to go out. If my Bichon is ever sitting near the door (that is the best he ever does)... I'd better take him out.

My Yorkie come by and barks at me occasionally. So I take him out whether he's telling me he needs to go out or not is anyone's guess.

I do know that my Yorkie does most of his peeing between 6:00 and 10:00 at night. Don't ask me why. He can go all day without peeing and all night without peeing....but evenings are just his time.

Good luck! Carol Jean

Sissy pees as soon as I get up the morning (usually 5:15), the again about an hour later. She doesn't pee much during the day either, but watch out between 6 & 9:00pm - I think she could go every 1/2 hour. She is great about holding it all night.

She also doesn't give any signal, other than to sit and look at you for all of about 30 seconds. It you don't see her or immediately respond, she will go wherever.

Mitzi (9 y.o.) goes 4 to 5 times a day. But when we go out more often she pees more often because she knows that when we go out she has to pee. Sometimes she just squatts down and 'fakes' if she really doesn't have to go. Smartypants!

Teddy & Tiffanie are 1 & 1/2 and they go out every 4 hours...Teddy will go rub up against the door letting me know or when I say "Do U have to go potty?". When I got both of them @ 6 weeks I took them out every hour until they got older...I'm taking the baby I'm keeping from our litter out once a hour until he gets the hang of it and he also uses the puppy pad. Hugs, Lee

Penny is 2 1/2. She usually pees once more than she poops so about 4x a day - morning, afternoon, 2x in the evening. She can really hold it when she wants. From her last evening outing (around 9ish) she won't go again until the next morning when she gets up (around 10-11, sometimes later).

Default Alot!

both of mine go out alot. They can hold thier pee pee for 4 hrs but usually that is only when we are gone during the day. If we are at home they usually want to go out every hour.

I don't take any chances with Remmy because he has had bladder infections and bladder stones. He had to have surgery. So I make sure he has water at all times and goes to the bathroom as often as possible to prevent stones again.

Chance is still a pup so he usually goes outside everytime Remmy does.

My nyx pees frequently too since she is still a pup she sleeps a lot and right before a nap she gulps up some water and as soon as she wakes up straight to the wee wee pad she goes. Everytime she does that circle dance I know it's time to potty

I have a nice fenced in area so I let mine out for 1-2 hours at a time. They have a doggie door so they can come in or go out through it as well. Unless it's raining I leave them out there for a while so they can do there business and play.

I hung bells Monday evening. Every time we head out, we say "outside - ring the bells" and let her see us jiggling the bells. I also sometimes take hold of her paw to push the bells. Bailey picks up on most things pretty fast, but so far the bells are of no interest to her.

Mine rings a bell to go out and I love it. I never have to worry. She just goes in the morning, at noon, in the evening, and probably three or four times, if that many, before bed. Yours is probably just drinking more water in the hot weather.
