We have a 4 month old golden retriever, we have potty trained her pretty well but when we leave for work we let her have the living room and kitchen area to roam around, and leave a pee pad out for her to relieve herself (which she always uses). The problem when we are home, we do take her out every two hours or so but we can't figure out when she has to go out (she doesn't really have a way of telling us) and she tends to use any towels, clothes, and even her bed as a pee pad instead. We've had to throw out her bed because of this. What might help ???

the only problem is we only want to put out the pee pads for her when we are out of the house for longer than 4 hours, otherwise we want her to go outside and eventually she'll be able to hold it. plus she always seems to go on clothes, towels, etc
I understand.. it's my thought that having pee pads in the house get puppies confused because you're trying to train them to go outside. I got a crate for our puppy, and it's working pretty good. :)
