My 12 week old pup is now getting me up at 3 a.m., 5 a.m., and wants to get up for the day no later than 6 a.m. Basically, if she fusses at all in the crate, I take her out. I don't think she has very good bladder control yet (she has "let go" on me twice this week when she woke up from a nap and I was carrying her outside, and she peed everywhere yesterday while playing "bark" with the other dog... I think if her bladder is full and she has any excitement she can't hold it). So, I don't want to ignore her if she needs to go. On the other hand, I don't want to create a pattern that will last forever if she is just fussing to get out. Your thoughts?
