I wouldnt worry unless her poops seem overly hard, her appetite is decreased or she is lethargic.

How long should she go without going though?

Really every dog is different and a lot depends on what they are fed, age, etc.

Considering it hasn't even been 24hrs I wouldn't be worrying yet!

Anywhere from 1x to 4x a day. 1-2 is most normal for her tho.

Once when we take her out for the first time in the morning (or soon after she eats) and later in the afternoon.

How many times a day does she eat? Is she drinking enough water? Getting enough exercise?

funny you should post this. Last week I went through the same thing.

For some reason, my clock work pooper didn't... and for 18 hours! OMG I immediately thought obstruction! He's been known as a puppy to eat entire 'things'.

As soon as I was on hyper-mom mode, he pooped. My dog walker texted me and told me, of course I immediately replied, "firm or soft?"

I need to get a life.

Good luck, I'm sure once you get the flood gates open, you'll have more than you need.
Obviously if you go for too long a trip to the vet is in your future, but I'd say give it 36 hours... but your vet is the professional. If you have a good relationship with them they should be able to have a better idea of what is the longest to wait.

Lily is anywhere between 1-3 times per day. Usually it is 2.

Buddy poops twice a day like clockwork.

Obi poops twice a day if he only gets out in the yard. If we go for a long walk or if he's off leash, this number can increase to as high as 10x/day? lol He prefers to poop in the wilderness.

each poops 2x a day. like clock work - once in morning and once in afternoon/evening. And small amounts because they are fed raw/high quality food

Now this week Maddie was constipated (thinking too much fruit). gave her some pumpkin and all went back to normal last night and this morning
