The problem with not using anything is that it will get stepped in and end up everywhere.

I think personally that it would be less stressful for a puppy to know that is ok to go on a peepad/paper that to let it think it had an accident, JMO. At least on a temporary basis.

Those are good points. I guess I will see what it is like when I get home and then decide if something needs to be changed. Thank you all for the ideas and suggestions.

We are in a similar situation. We are getting our new puppy in a few weeks and as our families live in different cities, we cannot have them to come and take care of the pup during the day.
And I am the same, in this day and age, I am not prepared to give the keys, alarm code and access to our home to perfect stangers, no matter their credentials.
Based on this thread, it seems like the pads in the crate will be the best way to go until the dog can hold for several hours, and then removing the pad, hoping that the dog will prefer to hold until we get back from work, as opposed to soiling the crate.
Any idea how long this should take?
