It’s so important to be consistent with your puppy crate training. If you can stick to a schedule your puppy will see the pattern and eventually know what to expect.
If you don’t keep a schedule your puppy will be confused and his training will go much slower. Don’t forget that the younger your puppy is the more potty breaks he will need.
