You know how some cats won't use a litter box that needs to be cleaned? Well does anyone have a malt that won't use a pad that needs to be changed. Jill is great 99.9% of the time, but every once in a while, she has a relapse. Like yesterday, she peed on the carpet 3 times, totally unlike her. Then I looked at her pad and figured that it was pretty much used up. I changed it and today so far she has been fine. Does anyone else think that this is the reason she had "on purposes"? (I really don't think they are accidents.)

<span style="font-family:Times">Peaches also prefers clean pee pads vs. used up ones. She's usually on point when its a new pee pad, but sometimes she'll miss here and there once the pad needs to be changed.....

wow
I thought I was the only one experiencing that problem... I guess its normal</span>

Scrappy usually folds the pad over to cover his pee and then pees on top of it. its soo funny i always wondered why he did that until i caught him doing it when his pad was all used up.

Our Oscar is a young guy and pees on the pad about 4 to 5 times a day but hates to walk on it and if he poops and we are not around and the pad is full then he goes on the floor, very frustrating but he is not into using a full pad.. we go through at least one a day...he is so particular...but I will say this we got a Pad "holder" that stops him from pulling the pad around and tearing it up and when he uses that one he seems to be more on target ...if we have him use a pad without the holder he seems to pee on the edge and gets some on the carpet...tough to figure him out but he is young so we'll see...Good Luck

Its been raining alot up here in Maine and so we have'nt been taking Coco out to do his business. We set up a pad for him in the laundry room and I too have noticed that if he has peed on it more than 3 times he will go on the floor next to the pad.

Ours is a little guy also and we go through a few pads a day, he won't use it if it is dirty
Plus I like it to be clean also , I figured he just picked up on my need for them to be clean, but I see there are many others that have little ones that feel the same way
must be another Maltese thing

Brinkley will usually pee on one two or three small times. Big morning pees usually have to be thrown away.
We always throw the poo away right after, but if there is two pees he will stand with his front feet in the box, and poo on the floor.
He doesn't pee very often, he seems to hold it until he absolutely HAS to go.
So when he does go, it is concentrated. I sometimes throw it away after one, just because the smell is so strong.

I also have a slight problem. Sparkle and Cookie refuses to uses pee pee pads that others have used. It is a pain and I have an overload of wee wee pads out.

My little house would be wall to wall wee pads!

If she's urinating in the wrong place, she's not housetrained. Go back to the basics. If she has the opportunity to pee on the carpet, then she has too much freedom and not enough supervision. If she's a clean dog, then confine her when you can't change the pad for a while.

Jill is not hiding when she is not using the pad. Two nights ago, my husband was laying on the floor watching tv. Jill walked up to him and he thought she was going to lay with him but instead she peed right next to his face. The pad was 8 feet away. So I do not think it is lack of supervision. I think, like the others said that her pad was too full and she refuses to use it. My cats do the same thing when I forget to change the litter box in a timely manner, ( I usually don't let that happen) and my oldest is 13 and has been housebroken for years.

jongee and Taco pees and poops and shares weewee pads, they go potty on the same pad, but i still have extras in the house since Taco isnt 100% housetrained

Jongee would sometimes use the same peepad Ellie used when she was at Cathys

Kodie is in his pen all day while i'm at work so I put 1 puppy pad in there (I used to put 2). He will also pee on the edge or right next to the pad if there are tooo many pee pee marks on it. So even if you confine your baby they might still do the same thing.

Anyone ever have this problem...

Kodie will let out a high pitched scream (thats his whinning bark) to let me know he pooed on his pad. He will then go to the opposite side of his pen and sit there looking at it. haha.. hes crazy!

Harley will not go on the pad if it needs changing.....he rarely has an accident but if he does it's because his pads need changed. Mommy's fault

i put out 4 wee wee pads at night. during the day there is only 1 wee wee pad.

sprite and ellie share wee wee pads all the time, but yeah, if its full....and i'm sleeping....then sprite will just pee next to the wee wee pad (ellie will just hold it).

but if i'm awake and the wee wee pad is full, she'll just sit next to the backdoor waiting for someone to notice her. lol.

Lacey did the same thing. Pee twice and she wouldn't step on the pad. Someone here recommended the Wizdog. This thing is great. I can go all day with just using one pad. Saves lots of money on pads. The only thing I don't like about the Wizdog was that Lacey would walk right off of it while she was pooping. I made hubby build a frame to put around it about 4-5 inches tall. This way she can't walk off of it. Lacey's paws stay dry, which is great.
