It is a good idea to wean dogs off training pads and the reasons are various. One of them is that training pads may be confusing to dogs as it teaches them to go potty in the house. Dogs, do not generalize well, and therefore they may have a hard time understanding why they can go in a selected area and not another. Also, dogs may not do well on aiming for the training pad. They therefore may tend to go potty on the edges and leave messes nearby the pad and not directly on top of it.
For your dog, it is often hard to distinguish a potty pad from your other things.

If at all possible, set up your dog’s papers, pee pads, turf tray or litter box where you want them to be long-term. Although not impossible, training him to use a new indoor area – and to stop going in the original area he was trained to use – is tricky, so avoid having to change the location of his papers, litter box, or training pads if at all possible. Putting your dog’s potty area in a room with linoleum, tile or other hard flooring is better than putting it on carpet, since there may be occasional overflow or misses. In the early phases of training, if your dog’s potty area has to be in a carpeted area, you may want to buy a linoleum remnant or waterproof plastic tarp to put under his papers or litter box, to prevent any overflow from getting to the carpet. Although most dogs are trained to , it sometimes makes sense to teach your dog to have an indoor potty area (newspapers, pee pee pads, litter box or turf box). This method is most commonly used by people with very small dogs, people who are unable to get outside easily due to health issues or living in a high-rise, and people who work such long hours that their dog can’t reasonably be expected to hold it and wait to go outside.What are pee pads for dogs? Also known as potty pads, piddle pads, wee-wee pads or training pads, dog pee pads are simply square or rectangular layers of absorbent material meant to soak up a dog’s excretions.This is the easiest indoor potty training method for most puppies and dogs. You’ll create a confinement area where your dog can be left when he is unsupervised. The area will have a bed, food and water dishes, toys or chewies, and an area for your dog’s potty pads or other potty area. As your puppy becomes reliable about using his potty pads, you’ll gradually increase his area of confinement until he’s loose in the house and reliable about taking himself to his potty pads when he needs to go.Many people assume that once you place a pee pad on the floor, the dog will magically pee on it every single time. Sorry, to burst someone’s bubble, but if things were as simple as that, the process of potty training would be as easy as pie and dogs would start growing halos over their heads. The truth is that dogs need to be trained to use the pads and it can take even a bit of time and patience. There are several strategies though that can help attain success.
