Hi
Dexter is 13 wks . He's fine overnight. I go to bed about 10-11 and during the week I'm up at 7.30 .
He's been fine in crate.
Also when I'm working he's in crate for a few hrs at a time. I now find on my days off he goes into his cage himself as he likes the peace and quiet !

Chelsea has been able to go all night without peeing since she was 10 weeks old. She has a bed in her puppy pen where she sleeps and we haven't had one wakened night with her.
She sleeps in our living room and at bedtime, I throw a blanket over her pen and off she goes to sleep. She goes to bed around midnight and gets up when we get up around 7.30pm weekdays and around 8.15pm at weekends.
When the blanket goes on, we can still sit, talk and watch tv. We've definitely been blessed with a little angel.

It certainly is. A lot of people say it can be difficult to train Lhasa Apsos. I agree they can be stubborn at times, but with love and rewarding good behaviour, I have found it relatively easy so far (touch wood).

Im amazed that some think apsos are difficult to house train - they will train well by the effort put in plus the understanding if accidents do happen - like anything, 'you get out of it what you put in' .......... sew the seeds and water them and all will flourish ........ and I always say its no different to educating a toddler to potty train

Agree 100%. It's all about time, patience and plenty of positive praise.
