Potty training puppies needn’t be a struggle; with puppy training pads your pup will quickly learn to do his business in the right place on cue.
If you have a new pup in the house, you may be struggling to house-train your new addition, as this can be quite a challenge. Puppy training pads may be just the answer as they offer an excellent solution for potty training puppies.
Puppy training pads are available in a variety of brands and sizes, ranging from small, regular, to extra large. Simple Solution Extra Large Training Pads is a popular choice. These training pee pads are 100% more absorbent, holding 10 times more liquid than standard economy puppy training pads, and are more than twice the size of traditional training pads. The pads consist of super absorbent polymer that converts liquids into a gel-like substance, helping to control odors and prevent leaks by locking urine within the pad. The pads also have a durable plastic backing to protect flooring and carpets. Simple Solution Extra Large pads contain a scientifically formulated attractant that encourages a pet to make us of the pad. For the eco-conscious consumer, Simple Solution also offer an environmentally friendly alternative to their standard range — Eco-Care Training Pads are made from 85% recycled materials and help reduce the amount of waste that ends up in landfills.
Bulls Eye Pee Pads are another brand that has been treated with an attractant — and claim to be unique in that they contain a pheromone scented center, which draws puppies to the center of the pad to pee. They are manufactured out of a quilted leak-resistant material that is filled with micro-lock beads, which absorbs liquids and eliminates odors, releasing a pleasant fragrance in the process. The manufacturers claim that because Bulls Eye Pee Pads have a pheromone scented center, puppies are attracted to the center of the pad to pee, which eliminates the need to clean up accidents or wipe away urine that splashes on the outside of the pad. However, as buyer reviews of this product on Amazon refute many of these claims, the saying: ‘if something is too good to be true, then it probably is’, immediately springs to mind.
If you and your pet live in an apartment, and you are away at work all day, by training your puppy to urinate on puppy pee pads you can have peace of mind while you are away from home, knowing that your pup will do his thing in the designated area. Your pet can relieve himself when nature calls, alleviating the need to hold it in until you get home, which can can cause the dog much discomfort and distress. When you come home tired after a hard days work, simply discard the pee pad — no mess, no stress, and no stained carpets.
Puppy training pads also come in handy during those wet stormy winter months when neither you nor your dog feels inclined to go outside and brave the foul weather. Puppy pee pads provide a comfortable and familiar spot for your pet to urinate indoors without causing any mess, stains or odors.
If you want to make doubly-sure that no urine leaks through the pee pads onto the floor or carpet below, you can invest in a puppy and dog training pad holder. This accessory can be used as a base for puppy training pads, as well as under food and water bowls to prevent spillage. These accessories are available in three different sizes: small, regular, and extra large, allowing you to choose the most appropriate size for your pet.
