Full Answer

When trained as a puppy, most dogs master the art of "holding it" between 8 and 12 months old. Regardless of training method, potty training is a combination of reward and prevention. Promote positive connotations with going potty outside through praise and treats. Prevent accidents through crate training and regular outdoor access. The age of a puppy, up to 12 months, determines the duration between potty trips. For example, a 5-month-old puppy should go outside every 5 hours while awake.

    Do spayed dogs menstruate?

    A:

    Dogs that undergo the spaying process usually stop menstruating, but there are cases where a dog appears to be in heat following surgery, which usually means that the surgery did not completely remove all necessary reproductive tissue. After tests to confirm that a female dog still has some reproductive tissue, a veterinarian can perform a secondary surgery to remove the remaining tissue.
