are you planning on having him use the pads for his whole life?
He/she is precious... anyhoo Maya was trained pretty quickly through positive reinforcement on the pee pads. Plus I would put her on it from time to time when I 'thought' she had to go. First thing in the morning, after eating, etc. Then I would give her a treat. I wouldn't get mad at her if she went on the floor I'd just clean it up and move on.
Thanks so much Danica and gymangel812! GOOD NEWS! I took him to the pet store today in my jacket looking for toys for him. When we came back I set him on the floor and he walked right over to the wee-wee pad and peed on it all by himself!!! Woohoo!
How old is your dog?? The vet's office that I used to work for always told clients to never take them to pet stores, etc. until they had at least 3 out of the 4 necessary puppy shots...otherwise, they are exposed to tons of harmful germs
It was so sad when clients would bring in 8 week old puppies who had contracted parvo bc owners took him to a pet store, dog park, etc....just an FYI bc before I worked there I didn't know that either
