Question Paper training a 6 year old dog


Me and my 13 lbs terrier are moving in a new apt. in a few weeks. The problem is this; with my other place I used to go home every lunch hour and took my dog out but now I will live a bit farther and won't be able to go home for lunch. I'm taking a week off from work to settle in my new apt as well as the dog. my question is this, can I paper train my dog so that she will be able to relieve herself even though I'm not home.

I'm not as knowlegable about small breeds as large ones - but can't an adult small dog "hold it" for 8-9 hours? I imagine they can, since they go all night without needing to go. Or you can get a roomy crate for her, bigt enough that she'll be comfy, but won't be likely to potty.

I know you can teach an old dog new tricks! So I'm sure you can paper train your terrier if you have to.
