1. Choose one spot for the pee pads.

People pee in toilets, dogs pee outside, I'm sure that's how God intended it; if I could locate a Bible, I'm sure I could find the verse: Thou shalt not suffer a dog to pee in your house. Essentially, if you buy pee pads and put them down on your floor, you are saying to your dog that you want them to pee in your house. No matter how well intentioned you are to potty training, if you bring pee pads in your house you are doing the wrong thing. The one and only exception is for sick and elderly dogs that literally can't get up to go out. They probably won't use them anyway, but I'm mostly talking about puppies.

And that’s why having a stack of absorbent pee pads for cats in such times can be a major help.

A lot of dog owners use pee pads while they are at work all day. The idea behind it is, it is better for the dog to have more space while left alone for long periods of time than putting it inside a . This is a common practice for owners of small dogs, as owners of toy size dogs are more likely to use pee pads than those who own large dogs.

2. Moving the pee pads around too often.

Good pee pads for cats help with that with their high absorbency and odor fighting properties. When I first got my dog as a puppy, we picked up these pads to begin to house train him. We were told that it would be an easy process, and that the pad has a pheromone that attracts the puppies to pee on them. Well, apparently our puppy was an exception. Maybe the peeing pheromone smelled delicious to him because all the did was tear up the pads and chew on them and turn around ten minutes later to pee on our hardwood floor. These pads didn't really seem to work for them and we ended up giving them away to a neighbor who has puppies that used pee pads. She said that they were fine with her pups, so I think that if your dog is already trained to pee on pads then these will be fine. If you are trying to train your puppy to pee on these as a first time, perhaps you will have better luck with an alternate brand of pee pee pads. Good thing we only bought a back of ten when we first decided to pee pad train our puppy!

Of course, your dog can use pee pads all he wants when he's out of the crate. If you train your dog to use a pad, for example, you may be able to let him roam free when you aren't home, and you can save him the discomfort of going out in extreme weather conditions. Lay down a pad and plop your dog on it periodically, especially if he's sniffing around for a good place to eliminate. Instinct guides him most of the way, but if he needs more direction, blot up his next accident with the pad and leave it on the floor. His own scent will compel him back, and you can praise him every time he eliminates on the pad.

Hollywood Pads solves the problem of unsightly pee pads by offering pads that are individually shaped and printed to resemble a dog’s PAW or a BONE . Our potty pads surpass most of the training pads on the market in both Quality and Cuteness!Before you start training, decide where you want your puppy’s potty area to be. If at all possible, set up your dog’s papers, pee pads, turf tray or litter box where you want them to be long-term. Although not impossible, training him to use a new indoor area – and to stop going in the original area he was trained to use – is tricky, so avoid having to change the location of his papers, litter box, or training pads if at all possible. Putting your dog’s potty area in a room with linoleum, tile or other hard flooring is better than putting it on carpet, since there may be occasional overflow or misses. In the early phases of training, if your dog’s potty area has to be in a carpeted area, you may want to buy a linoleum remnant or waterproof plastic tarp to put under his papers or litter box, to prevent any overflow from getting to the carpet.
