As Tom said, wood pellets turn to saw dust, and a couple hear and there do no harm. That is NOT true of the commercial "dog litter", which is EXTREMELY absorbent, hold their shape and swell to many times their original size. I used that stuff ONCE, and it scared me so much that I threw it all out and never bought it again. Stick to wood pellets if you want to give it a try.
The other possibility is to use a tray that has a grate between the puppy and whatever you have underneath. I have some of a brand that is no longer avaiable, but the UgoDog is still available, and although it is designed for pee pads, it can also be uses with wood pellets underneath. This is what we use in our RV, because it is smaller than our litter boxes, and the grate keeps the pellets from getting underfoot when we are on the move.
