Potty Training

Hello Everyone,

It seems that everyone out there in books and blogs and articles all have different answers in regards to potty training.

I have a 10 week old Chihuahua that we are taking out every 30 minutes or so to pee, and she seems to have a very regular bowel movement schedule of 4x a day at 4:30AM, 7:30AM, 3:30PM and 7:30PM. I have heard that a puppy gains more control over their bladder and bowels around 3 months of age. I'm just wondering when I can start taking her out every 45 minutes , or every hour and so on. I feel overwhelmed with all the conflicting information available and what I should do so I don't mess up.

I'm also waking every 2.5 hours during the night to take her out and pee her.

I would like to know everyone else's experiences, what worked for them, what didn't, and timeframes. I am following everything I read that seems to make sense, but there doesn't seem to be many how-to's out there that tell you how to proceed after the first few weeks of training.
