Puppy Pee Pads

Puppy pee pads are indispensable products for pet owners who have a young puppy they are training to housebreak. Those who have special-needs dogs or older dogs who have incontinence problems also find these products to be very helpful. With proper use, dog pee pads can go a long way towards keeping one’s home clean and sanitary, free from the "accidents" that occur when a pet has to go relieve himself indoors.

For many pet owners, training a puppy to go potty outdoors is the ideal scenario. However, this isn’t always possible for several reasons. For one thing, they may live in an area where it isn’t always possible to go outside because it’s frequently too cold or rainy. Puppy pee pads are also popular options for pets who are left alone all day because their owners are at work.

Dog training pads are also used by many pet owners to help their puppies transition from urinating and defecating indoors to doing it outdoors. One veterinarian recommends moving the pee pads a bit closer to the door each time the puppy uses it, until the time comes that the pad can be placed outside. These puppy training pads are usually scented with a substance that draws the puppy to it and encourages it to do its business there. For many pet owners, this is a lot easier and less messier than using newspapers to house-train a dog.

Puppy pee pads looking like grassThere are also pet training pads that are designed to look like grass, such as the PetZoom Pet Park Indoor Pet Potty. The synthetic grass surface of the mat can be rinsed clean regularly while the grid tray underneath can be emptied daily to ensure that the home remains free from the odor of pet urine.

Some puppy housebreaking pads come in washable and reusable form, which is a hit with many pet owners who feel that they are a more environment-friendly alternative to disposable pads. Reusable housebreaking pads and training pads from PoochpadThe PoochPad Pet Training Pad is one example of a washable pad that has a number of five-star reviews by consumers.

Both the disposable and reusable forms of puppy pee pads come in a range of sizes to accommodate various dog breeds, from puppies to adult dogs. They are a great way to protect the floor while potty-training a young pup or providing convenience to an older or ill dog that is unable to go outside to relieve itself.
