That schedule is very reasonable.My dog Lincoln, now 7 weeks is in the process of being house/crate trained. His days look something like this - 6 am Food water, free reign playing in the house for an hour or so while I get ready for work, 7:15 am potty break before I leave to work and then into the crate he goes. I get home about 11:30 AM for a lunch break walk him and play outside for about 30 minutes and then back in the crate he goes. I do not get back home until 6 pm and then we do an evening feed around 6:30 pm cuddles, playtime for a while then bedtime with me. Is he in the crate too long of a time? I have seen some post and I know it can be a controversial topic but I only need opinions. TIA
I will add he HATES the crate and welps and welps for a long period of time according to my sister who lives with me.
