Hey Sarah, I'm not sure what the breeder started your pups training on, but my pup that I brought home this week is 9 weeks old and his breeder started him on washable pee pads. I have used disposable pads since I got him home and he goes potty on those most of the time. He has not tried to tear up or play with the pads at all. I have a Rascal Dog and I put the pads on top of the grate. I'm just telling you this, because then it will save you the time of having to clean the grate all the time. Also, my RD came with a bottle of attractant spray that you could try to use to attract the dog to the pad. I just watch him closely and anytime he looks like he's about to pee, I hurry and pick him up and whisk him away to his pad where he finishes and then I praise the hell out of him. Also, whatever you clean up his messes with (paper towels, etc.)...throw them on top of the pad so he know the scent.
