Question Potty Training-Which type

I was going to stick the pads on the floor in the xpen with crate, food and toys but some say the puppy will tear them. Should I put them in a litter tray, or use litter in the tray and also what is the Ugodog like, I am getting my puppy in 2 weeks, will I have time to order one and have it delivered on time. Oh so many things to think of, I just want everything right for our puppie, I am getting so excited and think I am just about there. Please let answer my question and thanks in advance.

You need to continue what the breeder did. If puppy is trained to a litter box it will tear up the pads because it won't know what they are for. If trained to pads it may not know what the litter box is for, but that might be an easier transition.
Good luck with your little one!

I used the ugodog for both of mine. One was trained to the ugodog by the breeder, and the other one wasn't. They both used it with no issues. They ship fairly quickly, so you do have time to order now

Stick with what they were started on early. As much as we like litter, it's hard to train one to it that wasn't started in their first month, unless they have an already trained dog to teach them. We've tried probably everything there is, and some things that haven't been tried before, and keep going back to litter.

We did just order some long rolls of cloth piddle pads off ebay, and it is a much better option than paper pads. You can cut to the size you want with scissors, they can't shred it, and it washes and dries remarkably well.

Dogs that have stayed with us who were trained to paper pads recognize it for the purpose.

Tom, just a warning on cloth pads… Every single dog that I know who has been trained to cloth pads confuses small scatter rugs, especially light colored ones, with pee pads even as adults.

I can see that. We're back to strictly litter with the little ones, but keep the cloth pads for replacement to paper ones when we need them. We still have some older dogs who came before we started with litter that never took to it, so we use the cloth ones when the weather is bad in the back room for the older ones.

Whimsy was trained on the disposable piddle pads which I use in a holder. Never had any problems and she still uses this method. Looking forward to seeing pictures of your little one

The Breeder is training the puppy on piddle pads so I think I will go that route. Where did you get the holder, I have not see any in the stores but I probably missed them. That is great I never thought of a holder for the pads. Can you let me know? and thank you.

That makes sense!
