Here`s another great article:

We get our Pug puppy next Friday, we then have 2 weeks off work to spend some time with him and crate train him and start toilet training.

When I go back to work he will be 12 weeks old, and he'll be in his crate from 8:30 until 12:30 then I'll be home from work on my lunch to take him for a toilet break.

My worry is, I keep reading that most puppies of this age can only hold their bladder for around 3 hours.

We aren't going to be using puppy pads for toilet training but rather watching him constantly and taking him outside after food/play/sleep. Other times when we can't watch him he'll be in the crate. The breeder is using puppy pads with him currently, but I've heard puppy pads can be confusing and encourage them to 'go' indoors.

My question:

If he can't hold his bladder while I'm at work – should I use puppy pads JUST for when he's in his crate while I'm at work? I don't want him to pee on his bed etc or stress him out. At the same time, I don't want to confuse him and mess up toilet training.

Any advice would be greatly appreciated! I really want to get this right.
