Hi all, I am a new beagle puppy owner and have started to crate train. So far it seems successful enough and the accidents are at a minimum! I was just wondering, as I’ve never had a puppy before, how long a) I should be crating a 10wk old at a time and b) how long you let the puppy out for play/walks etc. before returning them to their crate? So far I’m doing 1.5hrs crate time and 45mins to an hour out of crate, is this excessive/normal? Thanks so much in advance!

Take your dog out and play and train commands. .and go potty. When your dog seems wound up and getting overly stimulated then its probably a good time for a nap in the crate.... give a little treat each time your dog goes in the crate so it knows its a good place. I always say.."crate" so the dog learns where to go. My 8yr old dog still loves her crate. She naps in there and goes in the crate at night on her own.
