Young puppies need to go urinate every time they wake up from a good nap.
They also will need to defecate within 15 to 20 minutes after every meal.
If you are not available to take your puppy out as often as it needs to, you should have a place for it to relieve itself. We like to use an exercise pen, that is about 4'x4'. Have a bed and toys in one end and newspapers in the other so that the puppy has an area to relieve itself in a pinch. Make sure the layers of paper are thick to soak up the urine.
