Dog owners: help please with wee-wee pads?

Recommended Posts

I highly recommend crate training or just using a crate for the times you are at work. It will really help the dog strengthen their bladder. If you do go the crate route make sure you don't put any blankets or pillows in with them. I also fed my puppies in the crate and hid treats to make it a fun special place where only good things happen wink.gif.

Thanks!!

yeah...I've started off & on giving him treats in there - and he'll go no problem when I have one! I'll say "come on...go to bed" and we'll walk into the bedroom, he'll go in his crate & just sit & look at me! God...he's so cute!! I can't wait to get home & see him - all 70 lbs of him!! I guess maybe we'll start doing the treat thing all the time until he gets used to it. Although then he'll be probably go in there all the time just to get a treat! That's what he does with going out to potty!! He'll whine to go out & then has a little dribble and comes back in for a treat!! Little bugger!! lol

I do that too..whenever we put him n there...He sits and waits for his treat that he knows is coming. He's been in his crate since he was 8 weeks....I used to feel bad...and sometimes I still do...especially when I work late..But he goes to Doggy Daycare 2 days a week to play with his doggies friends and get out all that energy!!
The crate is a lifesaver though. When he is in there I never had to worry about anything....When I was younger and we got a puppy, my dad would just block them in the kitchen and they would scratch and eat at the walls and you never knew what you were going to find when you got home...IN the Crate....he is safe and so is the house!! :-)

Well...this is only the case if you don't forget to latch the door properly!!
I came home one day to find Killick greeting me at the bedroom door wtf.gif
I guess I didn't lock him in his crate properly so he was in there all day without supervision...I thought "Oh no...what has he done". After taking him out to go potty I went in to assess the damage. Surprisingly there was NONE!! I couldn't believe it!! He did not go potty on the floor despite being left there all day - he chewed up my LaSenza coupon book (grr...but no biggy!) and a stuffed gorilla that I gave FI was wet, so he had been chewing on that. That was it!! But I still do not trust him to be let out on his own just yet!!
I agree...the crate is the best thing. And I feel bad for leaving him so long sometimes too, but as you said, at least he's safe!!

its funny you all say no on the frame, we have beagles and used a frame for both of them because of their hunting instincts they dug at the paper potty pads and the frame kept them in place which was necessary for us. We loved having the frame for the potty pads and got ours at petsmart. I also got the big box of potty pads at petsmart and would suggest everyone also crate train their puppies.

What do you do with an older dog, 13, that has started peeing in the house? I had no idea until I started to smell it. I have had the carpet cleaned twice and it still smells. I hate it. I have had her checked out by the vet and all is ok. If I'm home, she is at my side at all times and lets me know when she has to go out. I can't start crating her now, she won't go for it. I have started blocking her in the kitchen with a child gate but she has even caught on to that. As soon as I start putting my shoes on, she hides under the bed and I can't get her. Any ideas?

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
