After meticulously recording the information of Dakota’s day on a spreadsheet in Microsoft Excel, I have figured out her schedule.
Every 8 hours she defecates. Every 3 hours she urinates. This appears to be her schedule. She’s a 2 month old puppy, so it’s a miracle that she holds it all as well as she does.
So, 4:30 AM, 5:00 AM, 7:10 AM, 10:20 AM, 1:00 PM, 1:20 PM, are all no-play times. That is, once those times roll around, I’ll be running her to a newspaper.
I’m glad I’ve figured this out. This means I can more carefully plan playtime with her now.
