Considering this, is it normal for puppies to poop at night?

They poop at night. Sometimes, they poop when you're not looking or when you think they've pooped all they can possibly poop and there's no way there is anymore solid mass inside that tiny little puppy body left to excrete in any shape or form — but still, poop.

One may also ask, how long can a puppy hold its poop at night? Establish a routine Generally speaking, a puppy can control their bladder one hour for every month of age. So if your puppy is two months old, they can hold it for about two hours. Don't go longer than this between bathroom breaks or they're guaranteed to have an accident.
