Default Dry hopping and cold conditioning

My lager ive made has just finished fermenting ive put it in the carboy ready to lager in the fridge for about 3 or 4 weeks . Now my question is how long to leave the hops in the secondary for? And does it take longer for the hops to do there thing wile cold conditioning. I was think of chucking the hops in for 4-6 days before i bottle.

When I dry hop a beer, regardless if it is ale or lager, I like to rack to secondary (room temp) and add the hops about 2-3 days before packaging.
