Crate/House-Training Chart To Print Out?

Some time ago, while browsing the internet, I came across an awesome crate-training chart/schedule for GSD puppies coming home at 8-10 weeks or so. It was a nicely laid out, simple but detailed daily timetable for naps, meals, potty breaks, play time, etc, that could be printed out and stuck on the fridge for quick reference. Unfortunately, I have been unable to locate it again, so I'm curious if perhaps someone here may have a copy of said chart, or possibly can steer me in the right direction, as I think something like this would be a good tool to many, like myself, who might be a bit rusty when it comes to house-training a puppy.

Sure, I found a few similar (but more basic/generic) ones while Googling, but I hope someone on this fine forum may have just the ticket, and if so, I'd be grateful if I could snag a copy of it to print out. In fact, it would be ideal to have it as a sticky for everyone on here to see. Please forgive me if it turns out that there is already something similar here... I have been looking throughout the site, and of course have been using the forum's search tool, but have so far come up empty-handed. Thanking you in advance... any assistance would be very much appreciated!

Thanks, SitkatheGSD. Yes, along this line, but more detailed, and not so much a generalized chart for all types of puppies.

After yet another exhaustive online search, and also having gone back through all of my books and saved material/articles, etc, I have been unable to locate the daily GSD house/crate-training chart that I had mentioned above. With so many members on here with a wealth of knowledge on this subject, I am really hoping that someone may step up to the plate to draft such a schedule, for the great many of us who are either doing this for the first time, or have not house-trained a puppy in years. We could have it posted permanently on this forum as a sticky. Also, one could simply print it out to stick on their fridge for quick reference.

Thank-you,
Glen

honestly, I doubt that you could actually make a 1 size fits all schedule. none of us get up at the same time. We don't have to run errands, do feedings, cook for our families etc etc.

I don't even potty train on the same schedule day to day.
