I can't see the pics I'm so excited for you. It's so exciting. Be prepared for her to test your patience has you potty train and hit the point where she's fully comfortable in your home but then she'll give you those Boxer eyes and cuddle and it's all worth it Be sure to take lots of pictures and share them with us!! Congratulations. Enjoy the puppy time. It goes quickly.

so lastnight was our first night with Bella and we decided to let her sleep in the bed with us. She cuddled all night but woke me up every two hours or so to take her out to the bathroom where she would go pee and poop every time. Even though i stopped feeding her and giving her water at 8:30. Are there any pointers in getting her to sleep more threw the night? Also she gets hiccups sometimes... is that normal for boxer puppies? She has yet to go to the bathroom in the house though, doing such a good job and im so proud of her

Hiccups are normal. Expect lots of them!

It's not her doing really well about pottying outside and not inside! It's all you! You are doing a great job and keep it up!

Have you considered crate training? The earlier you start the easier it is.

She will eventually sleep through the night. And just like babies, sleeping through the nights is 4-6 hours, not 8 like adults. Be prepared to loose sleep for potty breaks for 2-3 more months anyways. What time is "bedtime"? I usually stopped offering water 2 hours prior to bed and it cut down the potty breaks in the night down.

The dewormer sounds like it's working. The dewormer plays havoc on their little tummies for a couple days. It does make it stinkier and more frequent, so once that dewormer has gone through her system her movements will become less.

Good luck and be patient. She doesn't know what you want from her unless you teach/train her. She will get it and you will think she's just the smartest little puppy out there!

My lil' Lexi has her spells of hiccups on and off, usually lasting a minute or two at most. I believe they're a common thing. To address your sleeping through the night..well, I think that's going to come with time, as your pup's bladder grows. I've noticed a difference in my puppy over the last couple weeks as far as for her showing signs of needing to "go potty". But keep up the potty training and positive reinforcement, along with a routine for going potty and I think you'll be good.

I think Bruno is hitting that same spot with being able to hold it more (he's 13 weeks). I took him out for a pre-me going to bed-potty at 11pm last night (he'd been crashed in the open crate for a couple hours while we watched TV). I had an alarm set for 4am to get him up, and next thing I knew I overslept and it was 5am. I had to "drag" him out of the crate, and then he sat next to it with the leash on and refused to budge until I managed to get him going a couple minutes later lol. Guess he's getting to where he can hold it longer.

Congratulations! We have had Jase home for 10 days. He get hiccups every time he eats. The first 2 nights he was up every 3 hours the rest of the nights it has been go to bed at 9:30or 10 and wake up at 5. This evening he didn't eat much and now has the pudding diarrhea, only once though. I sent hubby to the store to get the canned pumpkin just in case we need it because I'm sure nothing will be open tomorrow. I hope you are having fun with your new baby.

I love reading stories about everyone's new puppies.
Our puppies Max and Brandy will be 7 months old on the 15th.
Until last week we never had one accident in the house.
We carried our puppies outside until there were about 16 weeks old if it was night time.
We were told it would help since it was hard for them to make the long walk outside to there designated potty area. It paid off. Yes they became heavy very quick.
Now Brandy has had pee accidents inside 2 times. It has always seemed Max would be the one to let us know if they either one needed to go. Strange but true so now we are trying to figure out the signs she needs out to go.
