According to a blog post on Coinbase official website, if all goes as planned and the liquidity is met, the trading of DOGE on Coinbase Pro is expected to start on Thursday, which is three days from Tuesday after the announcement was made. However, the exchange users can start moving their DOGE to their professional trading accounts as they wait for the trading to start.

And although Coinbase did not mention any plans of adding DOGE to its retail trading platform, the exchange normally adds digital currencies to its retail trading platforms a few weeks after it lists them on the professional trading platform.
