I wanted to know timelines in training before my pup opened her eyes BUT quickly learned that like people every pup learns at a different rate. Michael Ellis is correct on timelines in training! As you bond with your pup they will tell you when they are ready to move on to a new step. My Shepherd pup is eager to learn & will stare at me with ears up as if saying "come on give me a command!" I stop what I am doing & use her cue as a teaching moment.

Good short video, but doesn't answer what I am looking for. I'm looking for like an example of a training schedule/format almost and how to know when to advance to either "the next step" or when to take on another exercise.
