Wizdog

I bought a new item a couple of weeks ago and I haven't seen any other discussions about it so I thought I would mention it in case any one else would like to try it. It's called Wizdog. It's a tray into which you put your wee pad or newspaper and then put a grid on top. The liquid drops down to the bottom so they don't get their feet wet. Ollie had a bad habit of laying on his wee pad when he was in his ex pen and it was grossing me out so I thought this might help. He started using it right away and I think it's a great idea. The grid is plastic...kind of like the grid some light fixtures have...you could easily just put that material on top of a wee pad if you didn't want to get the wizdog, but I kind of like it. Here's a photo and link in case any one else is interested:

We tried this with Jasper- we liked it for pee, but hated it for poo. but Jassy always had loose stools. But if he is using it and you like it- that is all that matters.

I don't think mine would like standing on the egg crate. Shelby won't even use the pad if it's in the holder.

It took Ollie a day before he decided the grill was ok. I took the grill off so he could get used to just the tray with the pad in it. Then on day 2 I put the grill back on. After that, he has had no problems with it. It sure is nice not to have wet feet! The other nice thing is he doesn't lay down on this like he did when he just had the wee pad. I'm sure it wouldn't work for everyone, but it's working great for me.

Kara...I'll have to look for those. This thing is actually a bit wider than my pads, it's not square...I have to fold one end in and then it's about 3 inches wider than the pad. The human ones might work great! Which ones are you buying and where? I've actually found he "misses" less using this even though it's a bit narrower. I think it's because he knows exactly where the edges are if that makes sense?

You can buy the human 'underpads' at any Drug store, Walgreens, etc. I think I bought these at Walmart. They are pretty darn big! lol, but they last a few days (she pees outside too). They are marked "XL", of course..I didn't see that when I picked them up! lol

You can get the pads for people at Sam's much cheaper. I think I paid 25$ for 125 pads. It was worth the price of the membership for me!

Wow! That's cheap. I wonder if Costco has them too?

Ollie has soft poops right now, so it can be a little bit messy. When they are formed, though, it's easy...you can pick the whole grid up and dump it in the toilet without ever touching it or you can just pick it up. I'm hoping this soft poop phase will be over soon!
