How To Choose The Best Puppy Pee Pads


The best puppy pee pads on the market do their job well, and can be very helpful in certain puppy potty training situations. 

Some good reasons for using puppy training pads to housebreak your pup might include:

  • Living in an apartment, or where you don't have access to a private, fenced yard for potty breaks
  • Extreme weather - ie cold/wet weather during the winter months
  • Limited mobility or a location which means you can't get your pup outdoors quickly
  • Your pup is very, very tiny or is sickly

When this happens you want to make sure you're choosing the right product for the job, because potty training your little one is one of the most important tasks you have as a new puppy owner.

Best Puppy Pee Pad Choices

Over the years I've raised and potty trained many, many puppies and I've used all sorts of training aids. When it comes to pee pads, there are lots of different brands and claims, but they don't all measure up!

So, I've put together a short-list of the ones that I think are the best. All three manufacturers featured below produce a range of quality products, and there should be something to fit every puppy/owner/situation right here.....


Nature's Miracle No Tracking Absorbent Housebreaking Pads
  • Leak-proof plastic backing

  • Extra-thick top layer (up to 50% thicker than regular puppy pads)

  • Scratch & tear resistant

  • Size = 23" x 24"

Ultra dry technology using concentrated polymers which can absorb up to 100X their own volume of fluid.

These super-absorbent pads (each can hold up to 2 cups of urine - that's a LOT of pee), prevent mess being tracked through your home.

Contain pheromones to help encourage your pup to use them and are also mpregnated with the scent of fresh cut grass to help your pup associate the outdoors with his elimination habits... this smells great too and is a nice way of controlling odor.

Nature's Miracle Advanced Ultra Absorbent Pads for Pets
  • These are a good choice for large breed puppies or older dogs... they have all the advantages of the regular 'Ultra-Lock' puppy pads but they're larger

  • Each pee pad measures 27" x 23 and holds up to 6 cups of liquid

  • These may be a little more expensive, but if you need to absorb an above-average amount of pee, then they're worth it.

Simple Solution Original Puppy Training Pads

These thick, 5-layer pee pee pads have a super absorbent core which draws in and contains urine quickly and effectively AND they have powerful odor control properties.

Can hold up to 10x more than the economy puppy pee pads

** It would seem that the manufacturer has changed the design of these pads and although the majority of purchasers are still very happy with them, some have been disappointed with their absorbency. 


Four Paws Wee-Wee Pads, Gigantic
  • Well, there's bigger and then there's........ B-I-G-G-E-R! These 'Gigantic' pee pee pads measure 27.5" x 44" and are perfect for large/giant breed puppies, older dogs or multiples of either.

  • Strong 5-ply leak-proof construction

  • Quilted top locks in moisture and neutralizes odors

  • Impregnated with a scent to attract your pup to the pad and help minimize 'accidents' elsewhere


Super-absorbent design!

The quilted core can absorb up to 10x it's weight in urine, while the leakproof liner protects the floor and the quick drying top layer reduces odors.

These are winners all around.

Available in 5 different sizes so there's bound to be one that's perfect for your puppy/dog/home.


Simple Solution ECO-CARE Puppy Pads, 50 Pads
  • Uses advanced polymer technology that turns liquid into gel to trap liquid effectively

  • Superior absorbency and odor neutralizing capablility

  • Size = 23" x 24"

These aren't quite as clean and white looking as most regular puppy pee pads, but they're still very effective and a great, natural 'green' alternative to more mainstream products.


Simple Solution Training Pad Holder

Plastic frame designed to fit all training pads over 21" x 21".

Helps to prevent your puppy from ripping and chewing the pad and also stops it from slipping or sliding on smooth floors.

Comes in 8 pieces which fit together... which makes it portable and easy to clean BUT some customers find that the pieces come apart a little too easily for their liking.
