Thank you everyone! I am still watching her like a hawk when she is not in her crate and at the yard. How long does it take before I can safely assume that "oh she will be good for an hr before I have to take her out."?

you may have said so before, but what is your minimum age for your pups to leave mamma? I think I remember it being 12wks?

Also what is the reasoning behind you waiting until Xweeks?

Hiya! I got Olive at 6 weeks or so as well. It does make things slightly trickier, but not impossible. Do you have another dog to help socialize her? Our family Golden was a lifesaver for me! I don't think I assumed she could hold it for an hour until almost two months. Maybe a little after that, even. Good luck!

Yeah, we have a male mutt Oscar and he's been really sweet with her. We thought he's a dachshund but the genetic test shows that he is 50% schnauzer, 25% lab and 25% shih tzu. He's a dog! Lol.

Emma (and her siblings) has stopped nursing from her mum a few days before we got her. Her family said the pups are ready to go by 6 weeks. It wasn't decided by us.

I let her outside every 15 minutes or so if she is awake and playing. I am nervous that she will have an accident at home. Thanks olive mum for sharing with me your experience.

Here in the UK it's legal at 8 weeks. Personally When getting a pup I want them at 8-9 weeks. We're experienced Basset puppy owners and to me important bonding and socialisation with the new human family and fur family is best before 12 weeks. Sure for inexperienced Basset/puppy owners later is better.

No problemo! I dunno about that genetic test lol I've never seen a schnauzer, lab or a shih tzu with that coloring...however, I did just finish watching a dachshund with it! Whatever the breed, if he's good to her, that speaks volumes of his temperament! Oh, and if she starts eating his food and he doesn't do anything about it, don't worry about intervening. He knows she's still a growing baby and I think there's an age where something clicks and he'll decide it's time for her to stop...and he'll probably make himself pretty clear. Oscar won't let himself starve, that's for sure.

Emma has been nipping Oscar all day long...chewing on his tail, thighs, and even his pe*^#!! She probably thought its her mummy's boobs. He just lets her get away most of the time unless he gets really irritated.

I just can't wait for the potty training to be done. How old is olive and how long does it take for her to be housebroken?
