I wanted to expand on some questions I have regarding our new puppy. Max is 8 weeks and has only been with us 3 days (2 nights). The first day he didn’t drink anything from 6pm to morning and slept all night. The second night, no water after about 7pm – he woke us up though at 3am. He still didn’t potty, though, he just wanted attention. So apparently he either isn’t getting enough water OR has a heck of a tolerance for holding it. The second part is that he keeps going in the kitchen when we’re home. The issue here is, we let him out of his crate and immediately go outside. He does his thing and we praise him greatly. We usually wait until we’re sure he is done, and then come inside. However 4 times now he has peed within 30 minutes of being out. We are in close proximity and he just – goes. Once I caught him and 3 times he was just around the corner or behind a table. That’s a lot of peeing and I don’t see him drinking that much water. What’s the deal? Keep him crated more? Keep him outside longer? 30 minute bathroom trips while out of crate? I don’t want to scold him any more than necessary, but he’s going to need to learn to hold it even outside of the crate.
