Can an 8 week old puppy be potty trained?

An 8-week-old puppy is very young to begin the potty-training process. Your puppy needs to go out when he wakes up, after eating and drinking, and after playing. He should also be taken out every two hours when he is 8 weeks old. Asking him to go longer than that without a bathroom break makes accidents very likely.

How long can an 8 week puppy be left alone?

How long can a puppy be left on their own? It depends on their age and whether they are toilet trained but a guideline is no longer than four hours at a time. Younger puppies (from 8 weeks old) should only be left for 2 hours on their own initially and then gradually build up the duration.
