My Goldendoodle is 10 weeks old. This week finally got to normal and he's settled into a nice routine for the first half of the day.
Wake up at 6:30am and go potty, breakfast around 6:45am. Play and be around family until 8:00am and then goes into crate with bully stick while I take my kids to the bus stop. Then we go for a walk around 8:20am. At 8:45am I take him upstairs to the bathroom where he relaxes while I shower and get ready. I take him out to potty around 9:15am and he gets a treat and goes in his crate between 9:20-9:30am. I leave and he naps until I come home around 12:45pm for lunch.
All good as this schedule seems to work for both him and me. With tomorrow being the weekend i'm wondering if I should try and stick to this same schedule of if puppies learn that weekday and weekend are different and we shouldn't have such a strict schedule on Sat/Sun. My kids will be around during the weekend but I have a crate in my bedroom so I can isolate him from the family for nap time.
