HI Does anyone else have this problem? Summer uses her pee pads just fine doing very well
BUT lately she's been walking over and then she starts going around and around the pad then she walks away from the pad and pees
last night she did it twice I moved her as fast as I could and let her finish on the pad telling her "Summer potty" and tap the pee pad.
Whats up?? its not like the pad needs to be changed.

Do you have a holder for your pad, or something similiar to like the wizdog? I think when they begin doing their circles, it is just hard to remember where they are. She is going to the right place, right? Just when she circles she is missing? Maybe if she had like the holder to help her distinguish between where it is and isn't would be helpful to her.
I had this problem with Frosty until I got the wizdog, and while I don't find the wizdog worth the $, I am glad to have something the she has to step UP on, and so she knows if she steps off that isn't her potty.
Hope this helps!

I guess I wasn't looking at it that way
no wizdog etc I leave 2 pads out 1 in my bedroom and 1 in the office the 2 places she's in the most.. the one in the office is on tile so I have it on one of those holders that u tuck the corners in ( not real good but it does hold it stil) I've tried the litter box she wouldn't go in it . Will get it out and try training again Thanks

Are you there when she goes potty? If you see her steps off the pad correct her right away. What I did with Chelsey is make a grunt sound or a Uh sound as soon as she stepped of the Wee wee pad or wizdog. Then when she is back on the wee wee pad quickly a good girl. It's a daily process she will pickup quickly and not miss at all. Maltese are suck quick learners.

This is why I have linoleum to protect my hardwood floor under the Wizdog thank goodness. I can't tell you how often he misses the mark.

I put 2 large (18x36) pads down for Lady which works really well. I never could figure out how some people can get by with only one small pad!

Rosie is very good about going on the pads, we use 2 also. When we have one out she circles around 5 times and goes, but it is harder for her to go with only one. Good luck
