Ours is 7 months and sleeps from about 7.30 till bed time at about 10.30 when she goes out for a wee.Then onto our bed.

In the last month She then almost invariably wakes up for a wee at 2.30.

She’s 7 months...

Dpuppy outgrew her crate at 6 months. Routine had been wee at 10 and crate til 6.. No wee during the night needed by then.
Now sleeps on the sofa with our other ddogs.
Morning nap on our bed from 6 - 9/10 most days!!

Bella has dinner at 6.30 then evening walk for about half an hour. At eight o clock she takes herself to bed and doesn't move again until 8am. You can set a clock by her, no idea how she knows it is bedtime.

One of mine is 7 month. He is usually fed about 5:30 then walked about 7pm. He will play with my other dogs in the garden on and off. He usually sleeps from 10pm and goes all night till 8am. I've never crated any dog. They sleep downstairs on sofa or floor.

Dinner around 6.30pm, then 'funny half hour' with the two of them charging about the garden, pees and poos done, they both chill on the sofa until bed time at 10.30/11pm and then they're put in the kitchen for bedtime until the morning usually about 8/9am!

They are 3 & 4 years old.

Forgot to add, they go out for their nighttime pees and poops before bed!

Ours are outside working dogs. If they aren’t on a shoot, they spend most of the day in their run and kennel, having their 2nd meal around 4 pm, followed by 2nd walk/training/working session, after which they snooze and dry out (from their evening swim in the river) until coming inside for their socialisation/play/cuddle. At 10.30, they decide it's bedtime, no matter what is happening, and off they go to the boiler room until 8.30 the following day, when breakfast is served, followed by their morning walk.

Ours gets his tea at 5.30. Then playtime/naps/mooches about until 7.30pm when it's a short round the block walk. Comes back and settles till around 9.30/10 when he goes to bed. That's him till whenever we get up but normally between 6/7am.

One of my old dogs would put himself in his bed about 8 pm. And not move till I came down the next morning.

Dinner about 4pm and walks. Then snooze or potter round until 9 ish in summer when it’s out for final wee before bed. The door is open to the garden at this time of year. In winter they are let out for a pee at 6.30ish.
They sleep in the kitchen and if the need letting out in the night they go and find a human to wake up, it’s only occasionall. One is quite old

Our current routine is last ball play before feed at 5pm. Clean his teeth and a quick brush of his ears and tail then he crashes asleep until a couple of biscuits at 7pm because he suffers from acid indigestion at night then sometime after 10 if he hasn't woken for a pee we wake him for his last toilet trip.

They doze with us in the living room until we go up to bed (though the older one sometimes just goes to bed at about 8pm), when they head through into the kitchen, get into bed and settle down for the night.

Evening meal at around 5 pm. Final walk of the day around 6.30. One then takes himself somewhere quiet to doze, the other planks herself on top of me from around 8pm when the tv goes on. Final wees at 10pm. Boy dog decides where he wants to sleep for the night, girl dog goes into her house (crate) for the night. Both settle down until someone gets up in the morning.

I have three they have afternoon walk about 4 dinner at 6 then they are in the garden or kitchen with us until we go in the living room about 7 when they all follow us in and snooze until bedtime - they are woken up anywhere between 6.30 and 9 depending on what's going on. They are different breeds 2 large on small and all do the same thing
