Dog Pee Pads

So you have a new puppy and need to tackle the looming task of potty training. Yikes! While potty training can be a chore, dog potty pads can be a great tool to use while your puppy grows. As you likely know, younger dogs are not able to hold their bladders as long as grown canines, generally needing to relieve themselves every 30 to 45 minutes. So what are you to do when leaving the home for more than a half hour through the potty training period? The answer is simple and much easier than you might suspect. Doggy potty pads are great for use while training your outdoor pup, giving him an appropriate place to relieve himself while you're away. They feature effective, built-in dog attractants that entice usage over inappropriate locations like, say, the carpet or a pet bed. And they're super absorbent, soaking up all the mess and keeping it off of your floor.For certain people, potty pads can even be a wonderful alternative to training your pup to relieve himself outside. If you live in a high-rise, have little or no lawn, or have mobility issues, and have a small dog, training your dog to use unscented dog potty pads or scented dog potty pads can be a great solution. And potty pads also work well for aging dogs who have trouble holding their bladders while you're away at work all day and not able to let them out.
