some pups can hold it longer, but the rule of thumb is an hour per month plus one, I was lucky, at 10 weeks mine would hold it all night, how much exercise is your pup getting before bed? Boxers like labs need lots of exercise, a tired dog is a good dog remember. at 10 weeks we would do a half hour "soft walk" meaning no running and walking on grass, then 1/2 hour of play time, ball chasing, kid chasing etc and finally about 15-20 minutes of obedience training, this really tires them out because you're working their brain.
