Hi Guest!!!

I found this information online. Hope it helps!!

Crating Time
A 6-month-old puppy may be crated for a maximum of four to five hours during the day. If your pup has good bladder and bowel control, you can crate him for the whole night. At night, your pup's body systems slow down. To help him hold it through the night, remove his food and water after his evening meal. Take him out to potty before you go to bed. He should be fine for the night.

6 weeks—elimination every hour
2 months—pup should have 2 to 3 hours of control
3 months—4 hours
4 months and up—5 hours
Many young dogs can go all night at 3 months.
