Adopted a 6 to 8 month old cocker span -female- problem, no bladder control. She goes every 2 1/2 to 3 hours, sometimes every 2. I've been letting her stay out of her crate for 2 hrs. after she eats her morning meal and putting her in her crate for another 2 to 2 1/2 hrs. before I take her out again, total of 4 to 4 1/2 hrs. How long should I kept her on this routine before I stretch it to 4 1/2 - 5 hrs, etc. Is the method I am using OK.
Until she holds it in for the full 2 1/2 hrs. After this start to stretch it. vetcare
