      For Puppy hood reference
      For Hemi and I, when he was a puppy, I took the first 2 weeks off, then talking with my boss, the next four weeks up at 6, eat play potty play, off to work at 8, early lunch 10:30 to 11 with potty and play. Then afternoon break 2:30 to 3 ish. then home at 5 then all Hemi time after that.

      Now as an adult after after like the first 6 weeks at home.
      I slowly like over the next couple years went from 6 a.m. morning to now 7 a.m. morning just now there is less play in the morning. 12 to 1 lunch. Mainly consisted of training and treats here at lunch I eat quick, 15-20 min every day training. This is a great time I found to train and work his mind. Then play and potty then back to work. 5:00 All Hemi all the time.

      I am away from the house from 7:30 to 5:30, I go home on my lunch which is a hour. Nothing special. Obviously my evenings and weekends are completely consumed with the dogs

      I work from Home and if i remember when GIGI was a pup my wife stayed at home. But gigi never pooped in the house ever even at 12 weeks when we got her. She would once in a while get excited and pee. So our potty training was to get her to pee outside. I can count may 4 to 5 times she has accident. She was only put in a crate when my wife went out which is not more than 2 hrs . That too we stopped at 5 months and let her do what she wants. Depends on how the pup is i guess. Gigi hated her crate and from 6 month as long we have some potty time every 6hrs was good.

      All day alone out of crate started at 8 to 9 months maybe .
