We acquired Lacy at 8 wks old on 6/3/10 and at night/during sleep time we started her out at 12:00am, 2:00am, 4:00 am, 6:00am now she is 11 wks and now take her out 3:00am, 5-5:30am & again at 7:00am. Once she wakes up & starts her day I take her out about 12/13 times during day. She is starting to go to the front door on her own but not every single time plus I'm beginning to recognize her whimper which alerts me. When she really, really has to go she goes to front door & starts leaping up like a lamb & I rush her out quickly.
I wake her up at night as she won't get up on her own and carry her outside and then place her in her crate afterward. Glad to hear your little one is starting out well. TGIF.
