Going out for an evening

My puppy is 15 weeks old and I'm taking him outside for wee/poo breaks about every 3 hours (sometimes less). I need to go out for an evening soon and he'll be on his own from about 7:30pm. If I get back at 11:00pm should I wake him up to take him outside (though he'll probably wake up just because I'm back) - or will that wake him up too much for him to go straight back to bed?

He is going through the night without soiling in his crate - with his last trip outside usually sometime around 10:00pm.

(Am I making any sense?)

I'd take him out. =] Like you said, he'll probably wake up since you're home, anyway, so just quietly take him out to potty, then put him back to bed.

He'll wake up and want to see you! Have a puppy celebration, outside potty time, some settle/snuggle time, and back to bed... that's what we did with our pups at that age. ;-)

I'd take him out - at that age, I was still waking up during the night before Maisy woke up to wake her up to pee so she didn't get all upset and find it harder to settle. This way he'll be nice and snoozy and will drop off. I must admit - it's such an endearing thing when they're that young and NOTHING NOTHING NOTHING is going to stop them from saying hello to mummy!
