• I bought the ones at Wal-Mart in a green bag came in 100 and I think bag of 32. When I got Jaycee he said this is the name of the puppy pads she is broke to and I said ok. I do not know what they were I just went to Wal-Mart and she knew what they were just as soon I put it on the floor. I had a time getting her to stop using them. I never had a mess always on pad you buy like a holder to put them in so do not slide around I never did. I think if you go to www.upco and type in puppy pads they have the holder. I do not know what the litter cost it may be better not sure.

    I guess I assumed that a litter box is more of a permanent solution compared to the pads, which are common with puppies. I could be wrong.

    If the pads are suitable for a permanent solution I would without a doubt consider them.

    I know that you can use a piece of sod (grass) in a shallow litterbox, and it will act like the yard outside as well as potentially will look "nicer" in your home. I did some research on it when I first got Otis about 2 months ago, but decided he didn't need it, since he learned so quickly to ask to go outside. Just a thought..
    I do have pads (puppy) out if we are gone long times, not for OTis to use but my daughters 1 year old schnorkie she uses it. She can hold it longer, but piddles inside as if to say…she wants to go out but nobody was here.. so here take that...attitude


  • Anyone heard of Pooch Pads? I was reading reviews and it sounds like a very nice solution.

  • We train our puppies using Feline Pine/Pine Fresh litter. It turns to sawdust when wet, so doesn't make a mess (except when they do the B 500 through the box and scatter it!) Have not tried it with adults who have never used it, but I'm sure it could be done. The only problem with older males is if they are leg lifters - their aim is not always great!

    Kananga is not a leg lifter. Actually my last male dog (border collie) was not either. 🙂

    When I got Aaliyah this winter I set up litterboxes with Equine Pine/Equine Fresh. Same as the feline except a 30lb bag of Equine costs $6. I also liked it because it makes the house smell nice.


  • will the dogs use it for BM accidents too? we have diarehhea issues now and they have had several accidents.YUCK!!! i put old blankets all over the floor in the room where they sleep. then i can just toss the poo and wash the blanket. what a mess. this sounds better if they will use it and not the carpet.

    Yikes, that does not sound fun.


  • Yes, they will use it for poop - but if they have diarrhea they might not be able to make it to the box!
    Of course, the best thing is to figure out what's causing the diarrhea, which I'm sure you are working on. Half an Immodium usually works for ours if it's a temporary stomach upset from eating something they shouldn't…
