- No punishment.
- Set up her “alone” room.
- Feed Fluffy on a schedule.
- Take her to her pad regularly and wait for her to go.
Why won’t my dog pee on the pad?
Some dogs stop peeing on their puppy pads because of medical conditions, behavioral problems, or old age. With a puppy pee pad, you don’t have to take your dog out all the time! Take your dog to the pee pad and reward them every time they pee there. Also, try to stop your dog every time they go potty elsewhere.

Does rubbing your dog’s nose in Pee work?
Never rub a dog’s nose in urine or feces, or punish a dog for an “accident.” This will teach your dog to fear you, and he may hide when he has to “go.” It is not instinctive for dogs to relieve themselves outside; it is only natural for them to not go where they sleep. It is up to you to train your dog.
How long should you use puppy pads?
Up to a maximum of 12 hours at 12 months of age. Not that you always want to wait 12 hours… The point is that they should be able to hold it for that duration if absolutely needed.
When should I change my dogs pee pad?
Though the exact answer will be different for each puppy, in general it is a good idea to change the pad after two or three uses. This will stop the potty area from smelling so terrible. It will also prevent the puppy from accidentally stepping in its own waste- something NOBODY wants.
