Jemma was 1.5 when we got her and she was fine without a routine then. Boo was younger, but still over a year. It'll take a bit for the doggy to get used to the routine though. Instead of having a time to go out, for my dogs, it's signs- like putting on my toque, or my glasses means they're going out soon, so they get ready and get the juices warmed up and by the time we go, they're quick about it. They also have verbal cues, and I never say anything remotely close to those without following through- you don't want the juices flowing when they have nowhere to put them...
