help with peepee pads

as you know, my sweet dog has addisons. we took him off his prednisone (per vet) 2 weeks ago thinking all was good and it wasn't. he wasn't eating, lethargic and still continued to drink and pee. so, back on the pred. not a problem. he's bounced back great.

we keep him confined to the kitchen now when we leave in case he has an accident. is there a way to train him to use the pee pee pad if he has to go. i don't want that to be the norm only when we leave him behind and he has an accident. he's never seen a pee pee pad until august. he's 5 years old.

when we first brought him home after his surgery last august, he had a lot of accidents until we figured out the right dose of med. i put pee pee pads out when we left but he went elsewhere in the kitchen, never on the pad. he probably doesn't even know what it's for! again, i don't want the pee pee pad to become his primary form of elimination but i want to put them out when i leave in case he has an accident. am i asking for the impossible?

Impossible-No, I don't think so. It may take some time for him to warm up to the idea.
Pixie uses the Ugodog inside, and she knows to go outside too. I don't know how I lucked out, but it just all worked out nicely.
When she's in the house and she has to go, she goes to it and takes care of business. When I take her somewhere, she goes outside.
Good luck and I hope he's feeling better.

Beth, Pixie Puff and MiG too
