What is your GSD schedule?

I have a very energetic 4.5 month old GSD. She has finally completed all rounds of shots and is in the clear to go outside anywhere and wherever she pleases. I have been taking her outside to potty for the last couple weeks or so (apartment life, so the vet suggested not to do it until now).

I will be moving soon to a larger place that also provides a large pet park and lots of trail walking.

What does your schedule look like for your dog? Mainly, I'm looking for exercise schedule but any other key components of their schedule would be helpful to know as well. I'm thinking once I get situated in new place our ideal schedule will look a little something like this:

6:30 - wake up, potty
6:45 - breakfast/water, teeth brushing treat (she loves these things)
7:00 - potty break/1 mile walk
7:30 - work for me, crate for her
12:15 - potty/walk
12:30 - lunch/floor play
12:45 - potty
1:00 - work for me, crate for her
5:15 - potty/walk
6:00 - dinner
6:15 - potty
6:30 - floor play, chilling out
9:30 - bed

I think your ideal schedule is great. You have a nice balance of walk, crate time, and play. Since your post mentioned your pup was very energetic, I would suggest including a short walk in the evening and outdoor playtime to help the pup settle for the night.
