Gating Your Dog When at Work

Hi everyone, newbie here!

I not long ago aquired the newest member of my family, a cute little boxer puppy named Tiger. I'm so excited because I've always wanted a dog but I'm a little concerned about leaving him at home when I go to work.

I made a little makeshift gate at first but when I came home, he somehow got out and somehow found his way upstairs and made a mess. I guess my question is:

How do you deal with your dog when you're away?

How about a comfortable and safe room for him?

Try crate trainning , this gives the puppy a safe place to be while your not home, and a place he or she can call her own.

My friends told me about crate training and I've been thinking about it more and more.
Everytime I put him in my laundry room (which is pretty nice sized) with his toys, water, food and music, he always ends up getting out and peeing all over the house.

crate trainning is very effective however that being said you can't just shove them into the crate you have to slowly introduce him to it. It should be a place he feels secure, so adding his toys bed ect, anything that can comfort him, let him expore the crate/cage dont lock him right away good luck

Thanks for the advice everyone. I'm buying a crate today and slowly introduce him to the idea.
