Place pad on the floor in an area where you want your dog to eliminate. To encourage your dog to use the pad, try spraying Wee-Wee Housebreaking Aid in the pad's center. Be certain to praise your dog when he goes on the pad. Wash the pad as often as needed in a regular cycle using detergent and hot water. If desired, pre-treat stains with one of our Wee-Wee Stain and Odor Removers and allow penetration for 5 minutes. Do not use chlorine bleach or fabric softeners as these products may damage the effectiveness of the pad. Hang dry or place pad in dryer on permanent press or medium heat setting.
