How long can a 8 week puppy hold it at night?
A rule of thumb many trainers agree upon is that a puppy can hold her urine for the number of hours that corresponds to her age in months, plus one. So an eight-week-old puppy (two months) can hold it for three hours —but that is the most time she can hold it, so she may feel the urgency to eliminate before that.
Should I wake my puppy up at night to pee?

Should I ignore puppy crying at night?
Ignoring them at night won’t help them build confidence and may make them worse which isn’t what anyone wants. They need to be taught how to be independent slowly. We would never recommend ignoring your puppy when they cry at night, especially in their first few nights.
Should I carry my puppy out to pee?
Puppies need to relieve themselves approximately six times a day. A puppy should be taken out immediately after each meal since a full stomach puts pressure on the colon and bladder. After about 8, 9, 10 weeks of age, or when the puppy arrives at it’s new home, the dog should be taught to go potty outside.

Why is my 8 week old puppy peeing so much?
A young pup of only 8 weeks doesn’t have the same bladder control as an adult dog. They can’t control it the same way and often don’t know that they need to urinate until that very moment. This is why a puppy will pee a bit outside and then pee some more inside.
