I used to buy the flannel coated waterproof crib pads that are sold in the infant department of Target, Walmart, etc. They are large and washable, they are not as absorbant, but they are way cheap and large compared to the dog pads, and they also make a great floor protector under other pads.
Thanks for the tips. Now the question? Do you all really like them. How many do you feel you need for these washable ones? I really want to teach the pup to go outside but still be able to go inside when needed.
Actually I don't have the pup yet. Getting him on the 2ND of July. Just reading all the posts. Peepads, verses outside training. Ring the bell to go out training. Washable peepads, and it goes on and one. What's a girl to do.
I work full time, hubby will be home all day with the pup. Trying to make life easy for both of them.
We will be setting up an x-pen with the crate inside so puppy has a place to run around in it and can also get in his crate for a nap. Really want the pup on a schedule but then you know how men can be sometime. Time flies when there are doing "their thing." Knowing a little baby won't let him know when he wants to go out is the issue I am trying to get a fix on .
It will work out but just trying to get some ideas.
I really like these myself. They are very absorbent and anti microbial, so they don't stink. As far as how many you should get, I guess it depends. Bella has maybe six of them, but that is just because once she goes on them twice, shes done with that and wants a clean one. Bella knows how to get our attention if she wants to go outside, but i like her having the option to stay inside, especially when I will be out of the house for a few hours. I really only got these for Bella because she hates Texas, literally. She hates the heat and she won't stay outside for more than two minutes at a time, but I hate the heat too, so it works out great.
