How Often Do Puppies Pee and Poop

Some owner prefer to take their puppies outside to relieve themselves. The question would be how often it should be done. Given that you still have a puppy to care for, his puddles and presents will be left anywhere if you haven't started with the paper (indoor house training).


To have a better idea of how often to take your doggy to his outside spot, here's a rule of thumb you can use as a guideline.

Puppies between 2-4 months need to get out at least 8 times within 24 hours. This is the time your patience will be tested. I suggest sticking to a schedule in which you're comfortable with. Surprisingly, our puppy Bob is well enough with 4 trips.

Between 5 months to 2 years of age, he'll probably need approximately 5-7 visits to his potty spot.

By the time he reaches 3, he'll have a stronger bladder control and 3-4 trips will be good enough for the entire day.

If by chance you are considering to just let him out once a day, consider indoor housetraining or the use of a portable potty.
