How Long Can A Dog Go Without Peeing?

Generally, dogs have to pee somewhere around 3-5 times a day, or 6-8 hours. However, this differentiates when it comes to the dog’s age, breed, size, diet, level of training and other health-related factors. Veterinarians recommend taking your dog out to pee every 6-8 hours in order to prevent any unfortunate indoor “accidents”.

Usually, puppies pee more than adult dogs and have more trouble holding it in due to their smaller urinary bladders. On the other end of the spectrum, however, older dogs also have trouble with frequent peeing due to their age or certain health conditions that are possibly affecting them.

 At the most, dogs can hold their pee in 10-15 hours, but this might not be such a good idea because it makes them prone to “accidents” and could cause some future health related, bladder issues alongside being very uncomfortable for your pet.
