I was having a similar issue with my puppy a couple months ago. Due to work we get up by 1am, and usually he had to pee at 10pm and was reluctant to go back to sleep. Every puppy is different so YMMV.

I started to take away his water bowl an hour before bedtime, and took him out to pee just before bedtime. I also made sure that I refilled his bowl fresh an hour before taking it away to encourage him to drink up. Then first thing in morning I place his water bowl back down fresh.

I did that 2 nights in a row and second night he didn't need toilet until I got up with him. Also I made a point of tidying up his bed ready for him to make sure he knew it was almost bedtime before taking him out for last piddle of the night.
