About this deal

There’s a lot of work that goes into potty training – if you’re a regular at this blog, you’d know that well given how much we talk about it! This article was written by Andrew Whalen, commerce editor for The Spruce Pets, who joined a group of volunteer testers for direct insight into the usefulness of 20 different puppy pads. If you’re teaching them to use a pad in a specific area, leave a soiled one there – it sounds gross, but it helps your puppy know where to go. If you want him to go on the pad, place it near where he prefers to go potty and encourage him by saying “go potty” or making noises that sound like going potty (such as clapping or blowing air through your mouth). Puppy pads may be helpful for cats that start refusing the box and instead pee on rugs, clothing, or towels.

Most female dogs squat down to pee so their urine pools underneath their stance, but most male dogs lift one leg to urinate so their urine lands a few inches away.Make sure there’s enough room for your dog to comfortably step onto the mat without falling off it into the floor below! The main disadvantage to this design is that there's no margin around the absorbent area of the pad, so there's always a possibility that it might be a little soggy wherever you grip to pick it up. For dogs that are big even as puppies, like Saint Bernards, Great Pyrenees, and Newfoundlands, these larger pads can help to prevent a leak while they practice their aim. Each brand was evaluated according to its claimed capacity: If a pee pad said it could hold 3 cups of puppy pee, we rated it on its ability to absorb 3 cups. While we didn't see a noticeable improvement in overall absorbency over non-charcoal pads, none of our testers could smell any of the vinegar we used.

You can find a range of specialist puppy training products in this collection, including everything you might need to teach your new pet where their bathroom is. By using a potty pad, you can provide your dog with visual reinforcement without having to watch them go potty! Make sure that if you have other pets in the house (like cats), they’re not around when your dog is potty training. If you need help at all with house training your puppy, please contact the centre you rehomed your pet from and we will do our best to help you.

If you’ve read our blog before, you know that we recommend using a puppy pad for your puppy’s first few weeks of training. She has worked with airlines and the Centers for Disease Control to improve pet travel through veterinary oversight.

Each time your puppy wakes up from a nap, has finished eating or playing with you, take them straight to the pad or outside. Also, one thing I love about the pads is that there is no dust, this is so much healthier for our little munchkins. I need to get this size pads as the smaller ones they push them around and lie under them creating a mess. Perfect for indoor and outdoor use, use it as food and water mats, for kennels, or even when traveling.While we found that our recommended puppy pee pads did a satisfactory job absorbing the smell of vinegar, there's a good chance your dog or puppy-in-training is more than capable of producing far more powerful stinks. Plus, the top layer was thin enough that some of the sticky gel squeezed through when pressed with a finger (of course, no one other than a product tester is likely to press their finger into the center of the wet puppy pad). They are also durable and didn't tear or get weighed down we went used a combination of liquid and solid materials to test their strength. Pee pads are very useful in the potty training process of your dog, especially at home since he cannot just pee or poo anywhere.
