Hi Everyone I just wanted to share with you the fact that last night was the first night my puppy held her wees and poos and I didn't have to get up in the middle of the night and stand in the garden telling her to "get busy"!!!! I'm pretty thrilled because if you've seen my other posts, I was pretty much mental with sleep deprivation, so it has come at a great time!
I changed my feeding routine a bit yesterday so if it's useful for anyone else toilet training a puppy, here's what I did.
My puppy has a mixture of fresh and dry food. I weight out the dry food at the beginning of the day so I don't over feed. We were warned that the puppy can put on weight because it's too cute when asking for food.
I gave her a big breakfast at 7am. Then a smaller lunch at 11am, then a small dinner at 3pm. Some chew and training treats in between but nothing substantial after 3pm. Water available throughout. I took her out every hour throughout the day, bed at 8pm then lifted her at 11pm. She made it through to 6am...yay!!!!
