How Long Can Your Puppy Hold It In?

One of the burgeoning curiosities once having a new puppy is how long he can hold it in. Of course, a responsible owner would never try to test the limits of his pup's bladder control, but there'd definitely be some circumstances that little Fido won't be able to go out in time for regular potty breaks.

As a rule of thumb, your puppy can hold it in the number of hours equivalent to his age in months. If your puppy is 3 months old, he'll most likely be able to wait for approximately 3 hours between potty breaks. Potty training is not an exact science, but at least you already have the general idea. To clarify things up, this doesn't necessarily mean that a 3 year old dog can hold it in for more than 36 hours. Make sure you give your adult dog at least 2 breaks per day.

Forcing your pup to hold it in for him to gain stronger bladder control can be harmful to his health. Do not try doing so.
