puppy toilet training at night?

Hi I'm getting my new 8 weeks old female dob puppy in a month time. I've had dogs before but they are outside dogs so they just do potty outside all day long, but I want to have this doberman as an inside dog as they have really short hair etc.

So I'm not quite sure what's the procedure of housebreaking a puppy throughout the night. I will have a crate set up in my bedroom so I can take her to potty during the night and can better monitor her. I've heard that 8 weeks old puppy will need to go potty every 2 hours through the night and gradually increase the time until they can hold overnight (or can they hold longer?)

I saw this product in my local pet shop called Pet Loo, it's made up of synthetic grass, so I'm wondering if I can place one in my bathroom and I can take her to the pet loo during the night since my bedroom is upstairs and it can be cold outside at night. But then I've heard letting the dog pee inside will make him think that peeing inside is allowed too! So not sure what is the actual procedure of toilet training a puppy overnight, and if I can use the Pet Loo at night to toilet train the puppy until it can hold overnight and then I will stop using the Loo and just take her outside every morning.

if you allow the dog to "go" inside, she'll think it's alright to do it all the time. don't get yourself stuck in this loop. it's really difficult to get out of it when the dog's older.

Isn't part of the puppy joy waking up multiple hours in the night to take them out?Anyways, I agree with falnfenix, if you allow the dog to go inside she'll think it's alright. Dobes are smart, it shouldn't take too long to potty train and then all you have to do is work with her until she has better bladder control. Most everybody manages it so you'll find a way, I"m sure :]

Crate at night, and set your alarm to let the puppy out every 2 hours.
I carry them outside, tell them potty, praise, back to bed.
Expect to not sleep the first week or two
I wouldn't let the puppy think going in the house is acceptable.

It varies with my puppies over the years. I'm LUCKY right now and my current puppy only had to potty one time the first week and then slept through the night. Flirt, my Dobe, was the same way. BUT all the others needed more potty breaks. I let them let me know when they have to go. Take them out, potty, reward, right back in and shut the crate.
