I don't really know. I have a dog door, so when I'm home, they can go out whenever they feel like it. When I'm at work, the younger 2 dogs each have a chainlink run in the back room (former back porch that was enclosed, it has a concrete floor). My work hours are long, so the dogs have pee pads. I try to usually come straight home, because I'm away so long anyway, but I don't worry about rushing home if I need to do something, since the dogs do have the pee pads to use. Which they don't always do.

Mine sleep in as long as I want to. So we go when we get up, and if people are home, whenever they'd like. If no one's home they chill in my room for the day and can hold it 12-13 hours if needed.

Poor Smudge has been crated and forgotten by my family before. Black dog often on black blanket.. He held it 13 hours as a 1 year old as they forgot him.. I try to leave him with Cider so he isn't forgotten. He also often is quiet which doesn't help.

He goes out at least 3x. My problem is that he occasionally guzzles a half gallon of water without me noticing. Or is too excited to poop before I leave.

My two are outside during the day while I work/or when I'm not at home so they can relieve themselves whenever they need to, thankfully. Makes life easier since I don't need to rush home!

When they are inside the room, they normally start acting odd around the door so I know it's time to let them out.

My worry is night time while I'm sleeping. I need to try and let them out once a night, if I can get up. Can't wait for that dog door..

We are adjusting to Rocky's new schedule as he can't no longer hold it as much as he could before. He was able to do just fine with three times, but now he's more comfortable with five or six times.

Usually we go out at 7:00am, 10:00am, 3:00pm, 7:00pm, 9:00pm and 11:00pm.

Well they probably get let out 100 times a day lol. Yeah, 96 of those times they're probably just out there sniffing and eating rabbit poop. But they get let out whenever they ask. They can hold it, on a typical day it's just not needed though.

I have never rushed home because the dogs need to go outside, although I will hurry simply because I don't like them being alone for long.

Morgan goes out at minimum twice a day, to do business after meal times. He often asks to go out just to lounge on the patio, though.

For us, we don't ever have to rush home to let him out, but we DO have to be careful that his dinner (or breakfast, for that matter) isn't delayed too late or he will make himself sick.

At least 3 times a day, if I'm home it's more often.
