My pup is 9 weeks now she goes #2 outside but not #1. Now she has started missing the pad so I think I will get rid of the pad and see if she is just getting confused. But don't know if she physically able to wait for a walk. So I guess what I am asking is dose anyone know about how many times I should be prepared to take her out.

a puppy cant hold it very long at all .... even at 9 weeks old ...

take her out as much as you can and when she squats (as she is squating) tell her good girl in a 'happy tone' she will then begin to realize no peeing inside ....

thats what i do with my pup .... 9 week old lab ... NIKA

do you have pics of your pup? would like to see them

Puppies vary greatly but the general rule of thumb is they can hold it two hours for every month of age plus 1. Your pup is 2 months so 2X2+1 = 5 hours. Again, this varies widely from pup to pup.

Thanks, I just have to get her out as much as I can. I should have some pics soon then I will put them up. But she is a nice looking mutt her mother was a lab/Shepherd and her father was husky/lab, Well that what the owner had said and they looked it even she looks it but I hear you never can tell. I have been reading about DNA test to see, they don't seem like a bad idea

When my pup was your pup's age I took him out every 1.5 - 2 hours, yes that means getting up all night long . I'm against pee pads ,I think it really sends the wrong message that its ok to go in the house. That's not something you want your pup to learn.

Trainer - I havent heard of to many 2 month old puppies holding it for 5 hours . I always thought it was their age in months + 1 .

Yep, I heard one hour for each month plus one. I take my eight week old border collie/aussie out out every three hours at night, and every two and a half during the day.

Just like having a baby.

The funny thing is that see does sleep from about 11pm to 6:30AM with out going but in the daytime it seems like she is always peeing. But with your advise for the first few days I think I will take her out every one to two hours until bed time.
