Smile House Training Need Help! (wee wee pads)

Has anyone tried using Wee Wee pads before to house train their dogs? If so, how did you like them? Did they work? Did you prefer using them as opposed to general house training techniques? And did you only need to use them in the beginning to train your dog, or do you constantly need to use them inside the house?

Iím a new dog owner and I saw these pads in the store the other day. Not sure how good they work, but wanted to get some opinions before I bought them, and I need them soon since my dog pees like a firehose.

Any advice or recommendations are appreciated.

Thanks

I tried them once and that was it. My lab used to sleep on the pads and go potty on the floor! I think training them to go outside to begin with is better since if you can train on the pads, then you have to retrain to go outside. This would be training twice; I'd rather do it once.

Also, if the puppy has any accidents, I wipe it up, clean with soapy water, dry, and then spray the area with Nature's Miracle. It helps to neutralize the odor so the puppy won't smell it in that area.

How old is your puppy? It takes a bit of training to get them to go outside, and it all depends on their age how long they can hold it.

Also, if they drink a lot of water at night, they might have an accident during the night. This has happened to me.

The only time I'd use those is if I had a small dog and lived on the 15th floor. You know what I mean. I bought them once just to see and Maverick needed about 4 of them at a time lol It was amusing.

I would only use Piddle Pads if my old dog couldn't hold it all day. I think they're probably useful for older dogs, but I wouldn't train a pup with them. Barb's right; it would be training twice.

smaller breeds cannot hold it for more than 5 hours if there are not confined to their "den", "crate. The pads are for emergency only. I use them with my shih tzus when I have to leave them for more than three hours. They also go outside with no problems. The pads are they designated place when in doors, not the flloors nor the carpet.
