you can do short downs of up to 2-5 min with puppy
i would say 8-10 weeks on
increase the time up to 30 min
dont make the dog frustrated but let it get a little frustrated then when it calms wait a few more minutes and let it go
i mean with a puppy wait up to 15-30 seconds
do not expect too much too soon but a 4-6 mo old dog should be able to go 10-20 min anyway
if you do this randomly a few times a week it will help the dog learn to settle itself
