Going potty in his cage!
I am very new to this website and I can't seem to find any posts about what I am concerned about so I have decided to write a new one.
I have a 5 month old Yorkiepoo named Frankie he is a very smart boy and learns very quick! But my problem is that he goes potty in his cage. Now I know when you put your pup in a cage its supposed to be just big enough for them to get up and turn around. My problem is I got a 2'x3' cage for him to be in so he can still play, eat, and drink while my boyfriend and I are gone for 7 hours. I don't want to starve or thirst him to death and I sure don't want him to be bored. We tried the bathroom too but I'm sick of cleaning up his potty mess and that's why I got the cage. Is there a possible way for me to train Frank not to potty in a cage or am I stuck locking him up in his little cage.
Thank you for those who help

Why don't you buy an exercise pen and build that around his little cage. When you're gone for 7 hours you can leave the little cage door open so he can come out and play and potty in the exercise pen. On potty pads of course.
