We do our evening walk sometime between 6 and 9 in the evening.
We have a fenced yard, so the dogs (our dog, and our revolving crew of fosters) are last out at around 11, just before we go upstairs to bed. They all know the drill (or pick up on it quickly), and they run out, pee, and run straight up to the bedroom.
We've had a few dogs who can't quite make it through the night, always due to illness (UTI, intestinal upset, worms, etc). One of our dogs required trips outside every 2 hours until we could get her to the vet to get antibiotics for her UTI, poor thing.
Last walk is usually around 10 - 10:30pm or so. I take him out to pee as soon as I get home around 6 - 6:30pm, then again after the boys are in bed around 8 - 8:30pm.
Evening walk at 9:30 and usually lasts about 20-25 minutes.
Her morning walk is at about 7:10am.
We usually take him out to pee and poop when we get home from work around 5:30-6, sometimes out for another quick pee after dinner around 8 if he looks like he needs to go, and then a long pee/poop walk at 10. We head to bed right after we get in.
H takes him for a walk when he gets home at 430. I get home at 6 and make dinner. He goes out at about 730 when we're all done eating. He goes out one last time at about 1030/11 before we go to bed and he's out for a quick walk when we wake up around 630. Very, very rarely, he'll come and bark at around 4am if he needs a middle of the night pee.That's a typical workday schedule. Weekends are a bit more of a crapshoot.
Willow gets let out when we get home (between 5:30 and 6) and she usually takes care of 1 & 2 at that time. She then gets let out a couple more times before we head to bed at about 10 of so.
We then have a whole getting ready for bed routine. We take off her collar and she She gets her coat and teeth brushed and we check her nails for any that need to be clipped.
Then we turn out the lights and she lays down on her bed at the foot of ours.
DH gets up at about 5:30 am to let her out in the am.

Thanks everyone! I have been walking her at 10, going to bed around 10:45. I was hoping to move it up a bit, but it sounds like it needs to stay that way.
