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 training pads, there are lots of different brands and claims, but they don't all measure up.
Absorbency and size are probably the two most important things to take into account.
For tiny or toy breeds, or young puppies you have more options because most of the premium brands can contain their wee.
But for large breed pups, older dogs who have bladder-control or incontinence issues, or adult dogs (even small to medium sized breeds) you need superior absorbency and a bigger coverage area.
Doggie pee pads aren't generally designed to look attractive, but there are a couple of brands which have taken steps in that direction.
There is also an eco-friendly option and washable pee pads which are eco-friendly and very useful for protecting furniture, beds and car seats too.
Let's start off with a few 'Featured' training pads.
I've chosen these because they're superior in one or more of the areas which count!
There are several more high-performing training pads to choose from. Most are available in a range of sizes.
One of the drawbacks with training pads is that puppies tend to see them as toys... and can be inclined to drag, chew and rip them up.
Using a pee pad holder can put an end to this behavior.
Washable pee pads are a versatile and eco-friendly choice.
They can be used to protect the floor just as disposable training pads can, but are also great for use on furniture, beds and in the car.
This isn't just useful for puppies, but for older or senior dogs who have bladder control or incontinence issues.
Most are available in a range of sizes and you will need several pads as they obviously need to be washed regularly.
