Wee-Wee Pads For Housebreaking Dogs

Updated on January 25, 2012

Wee-Wee Housbreaking Pads For Dogs Is Good

As many people know housebreaking a dog can be one of the most difficult things you can have. This is the time you need to look at the Wee-Wee housebreaking pads for dogs. Without this type of information on these, though, the person may not have to opportunity to get the dogs properly trained for going potty outside. Without this type of help the person may have the problem in getting the dogs trained and this can often lead to you having carpet or other items destroyed inside of the home because of the dog feces and urine.

Positives Of Wee-Wee Housebreaking Pads For Dogs

When you look at the Wee-Wee housebreaking pads you may be asking what you can possibly find which is a positive of these items. The problem is you may not realize these are so nice because of the difficulty presented in using these items. However, here are some of the positives you can find while trying to housebreak your new puppy without having your home ruined.

- These are disposable. Now for many people this may not play a huge factor, but you need to realize if you are using these you do not want to have to wash them all the time. However, you also need to realize if your dog takes a long time potty training like children do, it can be expensive to complete this task.

- The items which are present here have a great liner to help stop the items from leaking through. Now you may not think this is important, but this is easily one of the most important items you can have. Without this item, these will just be like the cloth diapers kids used to wear and this means the leaking on the floor can happen.

- Size in these pads can matter drastically at times. Now you may think these pads are one size fits all, but you need to realize if you get the smallest pads, they may not hold the pee your larger dogs can let loose with. Since this is possible you need to evaluate the size properly to ensure your dogs will be containing their urine and other messes.

Negatives Of These Pads

Now you may think since I have done nothing but sing praises of this item, there are no drawbacks. However, you need to realize this is an item and most items will have a drawback. The main drawback that I have seen with this item is the amount of time it can take to get the dog trained costing you quite a bit of money. Now I touched on this aspect earlier, but the cost of these can be higher than what you thought if you have to constantly buy these pads. However, this aspect is inexpensive when you compare this to having to clean your carpet all the time or even having to tear out the carpets because it is ruined.

The Choice Is Still Yours

Now you probably will agree with me the best thing to do is to properly housebreak your dog. However, you will also probably agree this is a great item to use in the mean time while you are working for this item. Without this choice and proper training, though, it will be impossible for you to have the proper set up and clean home you need to have for having guests over all the time.

      Sure, I had a dog which was paper trained! Talk about a mess I left a newspaper on the floor to pick up a minute later because it fell out and he peed all over it. The way I got him broke of the habit was starting to leave his peed on paper outside. He started seeing the papers outside and started using them, now I did have to weight them down with a rock. However, this led to him finally getting to go outside. Then he would start to explore the outside of the paper more (the breeder never let him outside in 10 weeks). After he started doing this he started to get more interested in doing his business outside. That is how I moved them outside, but to get him totally outside I had to gradually slide the paper closer to the door until he realized the potty area was going to be outside, but using his own peed on papers worked well to and he eventually stopped using the papers inside all together.

      Would you tell me more about moving the pads outside please. If that helps it would be a great benefit for me to know about it because I get frequent complaints about the training pads and house training or lack of house training is one reason people get rid of their dogs. Thank You, Laura

      I have to agree with your Laura, but at the same time for some people if they actually monitor their dog it is easy for them to see these can start to help them. I know from experience moving the pads outside definitely helps out!

      Many dogs and puppies use the potty pads as chew toys, use the bathroom off the edges or all around the pad but not on it and continue to go potty in that spot even after the pad is gone.
