I took him out twice last night, and got up super early with him this morning. Please let me know how often your dogs go out and potty! Thanks!
Wally usually gets to go out 4 times - Early morning (after a night of sleep), Mid morning (before lunch), mid evening (before dinner most times), and just before bed time.
He usually poops just twice a day, and depends on what/how much he ate. If I fed him more "people food" (say a leftover piece of steak), he'll poop later and less. If I feed his regular food, he'll usually poop twice - once at mid morning (likely his dinner coming out) and once either mid evening or before bedtime (his breakfast/lunch coming out).
