Step 1.) Place the dog training pad with the quilted side up in a designated area. That the pet will be able to start using the pads (indoor or outdoor).
Step 2.) Try to encourage the pet to go to the bathroom on a regular schedule. Some good examples would be: upon waking up, directly after a meal, after a walk, and before bed time. When it is time, walk the puppy over to the pad and use whatever command that feels natural (i.e. “Go potty!”, “Do the business!”).
Step 3.) When the pet successfully uses the pad, it is vital to reward the puppy with positive reinforcement and even small rewards. By doing this consistently, the pet will link the behavior with praise and will be more inclined to make the behavior a ritual.
Step 4.) If the pet goes to the bathroom in an unfortunate area of the house, condone the behavior and lead the pet back to the pad. Try to teach them that the puppy training pad is the only place to go.
Step 5.) It may take a few days or even weeks before the pet becomes comfortable using the pad regularly. But with consistent training schedules and reinforcement, this method has a very high success rate. Once the habit of using the puppy training pads has been developed.
