How Long Can a Puppy Go Between Potty Breaks

Puppy Care >

Once your puppy has developed this behavior, it can be hard to break, and you may find yourself hunting for the source of yucky smells for the rest of your dog’s life. The best course of action when you find an accident left by your puppy is to discipline yourself. You know what your puppy needs and clearly his needs were not met that day.

There are times when accidents can be more than just annoying; they might be the symptom of a serious medical condition. If it seems like your puppy can’t be potty trained by any means, or if it’s almost as though pee just falls out of him while playing it’s time to talk to your vet. Conditions like bladder or kidney infections can cause a puppy to have no control over his bodily functions. Talk to your vet if you’re concerned about your puppy’s bathroom habits.
