3-4 hours after meal time for peeing?
I have a new 9 week old Coton pup. She has been with us for three days and luckily I am home so that I can train her. She doesn't always have to pee/poo 20 mins after a meal (in fact, this happened only once in three days).
She ate at 7:15 this morning and it is now 10:40 and she is asleep under the table. I have taken her out a few times, (once an hour or when i see her sniffing) no longer than 3-5 minutes so that she knows it isn't play time but so far, nothing.
Is it normal for a pup to not go for this long? I'm worried that she is stressed out and holding it, although total she went 7 times yesterday (she had already gone 3x by this hour yesterday including the 4:20 am wake up call). We have had a few 10 minute play sessions. Yesterday I noticed that she often goes after playing hard for a while.
I feel neurotic. It's only been a few days and I know she won't be trained yet but I wish she had some sort of pattern, maybe I just need to give us some more time to get to know each other
