I think the Havs really have strong preferences for surfaces on which they eliminate. Benji needs it very dry and clean and he would go on wood (decks) or brick or asphalt, he doesn't like grass, anything that is wet. Lizzie on the other hand prefers wet grass or something soft underneath her paws. She will go leaves, grass, or even wet soft gravel.
We have a doggy door and I place piddle pads on rainy days (or even when the air is moist) near the doggie door and outside on the patio. On rainy, moist days both do not like to venture out. They use the piddle pads. I have placed a large piece of cheap wood board from Home Depot to mimick wood deck on our covered patio. When Benji doesn't like the feel of the moist brick, he uses that board. It is easy to keep it clean too.
