My 4 month old puppy has been sleeping really well in his crate but I would like him to start sleeping through the night. What time should I be giving him his food in the evening if I want him to hold it until the morning? He gets dry kibble for his meals. He has slept through the night before but never consistently. I have started to take a chance and ignore him when he starts to stir in the middle of the night but then the fear of him having an accident in his crate hits me and I reluctantly get up and take home out.
He usually pees and poops within a couple of minutes and we’re not out for more than five minutes at most when he does wake up in the middle of the night. I am off on medical leave for three weeks so I don’t mind getting up, but when I go back to work, I will need my sleep. It‘s just me and him so there isn’t anyone else to let him out.
Any suggestions? Thanks all!

A 4-month-old puppy may actually NEED to go out during the night, and I don't think there's a dietary solution that will avoid that.

It will improve with time and, eventually, you will come to miss those late-night outings.

Or maybe not.
