long can a puppy "hold it"?
especially if they are crated, will try not to soil their area,
but you shouldn't ask a puppy to hold it longer than he possibly
this rule of thumb: A puppy can hold his bladder for the
number of hours equal to his age in months plus one. So a five-month
old, for example, can stay in the crate for six hours before he
needs to go out (but I wouldn't ask any dog, not matter how old,
to try to hold it more than eight hours). If you work all day, and
can't get home, consider hiring a pet sitter to come in on a daily
basis to give your pet some exercise and a chance to relieve himself.
It will make both of you feel so much better!
