    Often they'll let you know by trying to get to the door. Or you need to be able to see the signs - like sniffing, hyperactivity, walking in circles etc

    Eventually they'll be used to the routine - so they'll hold on till the normal times and probably won't display any need to go as they know at whatever o'clock you'll be taking them out.

    I guess I just 'knew' when I could start trusting Dave to be out of his bed if I couldn't have 100% attention on him.
    Though I still made sure to let him out often.

    I have read that a dog won't be 100% house trained until around a year, but again it depends on how good the owner is at teaching the dog.

    If Dave needs to 'go' when he is out of his bed he will pace and whine. (he is nearly 7 months) he has not had an accident since he was about 4 months. If he is in his crate and he is desperate to go he will bark a few times. That is the only time I let him out for making noise, I taught him that when he was little.

    The best things to do it teach your pup to ring a bell :)

    This article is great... A Doorbell For Your Dog

    Pups are not able to control their bladder/bowel until around 6 months of age, even then you can expect accidents right up to 12 months, it just depends on the pup.
