Default Puppy night time poo breaks

We have a 19 week old lab called Kane, he has been a little star with his toilet training and has been mainly clean right from us getting him. The only time he has had an accident has been when we have missed his little signs and when he had a poorly tummy caused by his food. My issue is, and I,m sure its mine not his ! Is that we are getting up at 3am every morning to let him out, he always does a wee and/or a poo but its getting harder to encourage him out so I,m wondering should we just bite the bullet and let him, hopefully, sleep though ?
I really don't want him to have an accident, I felt for him when he was poorly as he was obviously a bit distressed that he had had an accident so I don't want to out him in that position again.
Any thoughts, advice and tips would be greatly appreciated.

I must admit that both my Amy and Chloe were exceptional, clean all night before 9 weeks old. Certainly the earliest of any of mine. So basically what I'm saying is that it is possible for a quite young pup to go all night.

Were it me I think I would try leaving him another hour, until 4am. At this time of year it's still dark at 4am so he should not have any difficulties getting to sleep again afterwards. Try a few nights at that and if all OK try 6am. I don't know what time you like to get up, but if after 6am then gradually stretch it to that time. it's all about gradually extending the time until you end up with what you want.

Thanks John, I was thinking along the same lines. I’m quite an early riser so it shouldn’t take long to get to an acceptable time scale.

Thanks again
