Pottying in crate and playpen...
When should I assume he is just going because he wants to and not because he is to young to understand?
Seems like every time we leave him for an hour in the crate or even in the playpen he either poops or pees even thought he was just out and potties.
He is 11 weeks old tomorrow so I would think he would start understanding that he shouldn't go in there. I am with him almost 24 hours per day and he gets to go outside a ton, probably every 2 hours when he is awake.
Am I expecting to much from him to early or is he just not getting it. I could see it if I worked 8 hours per day and he stayed in a crate all day, but he never has to stay in it and is always kept clean. We always take him outside to potty so it isn't like he is confused because we paper train him in the house. I would think he would start getting that potty is outside, even a little, LOL.
Thanks for your insight.

Yeah, he is doing it with me in the room in his playpen. I was cleaning the living room today and I had him in his playpen so I could clean unhindered. He was only in there maybe 40 mins from when I had him outside and he peed.
