    Default Potty Pad Problems

    So I am having problems here all of a sudden..... My three LOL " little Angels" have decided they don't want to use the potty pad.... as they are sure it was put in there for them to rip to shreds..... I have put it down by it self and I have tried to put it in a holder.... no matter just more fun to rip up!!!! the pads don't last 5 minutes. I have tried spanking their bottoms....the squirt bottle and the rocks.... no matter as soon as I turn my back they are at it again. I need helppppppppppppp. Any suggestions.

    I have this same problem with Truman when he goes in his crate at night or for an extended period of time - I line it with a puppy pad in case of an accident that typically ended up shredded in a corner.

    Why they do not make them with adhesive on the back, I will never understand but I bought a cheap pack of panty liners and stuck the puppy pad to the bottom of the crate (or floor) with the panty liners, with a strip of packing tape on the bottom for a little extra adhesion. The panty liners are as absorbent as the pad and hold it in place nicely.

    I know it sounds odd but it really works - Truman stopped trying to dig his up!

    I used a puppy litter box and it worked excellent. Good suggestion from Jillh10, I also had someone say they strap it down along the edges with tape!

    That stinks...and what a mess. Wish I could help. I am using a liter box with Brodie and Lola fully trained. Hopefully the liter box will work, we have not had to leave him by himself yet so don't know...will find out tomorrow! Good luck!

    I don't use potty pads. Aren't they "scented" so they encourage them to go on them? I always use an old towel or small rug. Yeah, it has to be washed a lot when they're little, but they can't tear it up or eat it.

    @2bulliefamily: So is Brodie the new baby's name? I was off here a couple days and missed his arrival. I LOVE Brodie. My identical twin grandsons are Brody and Brady. Now you need Brady

    @Gertie's Mom: Yes, we are going with Brodie and I just glittered it on his stocking and he is already coming to Brodie so I am not changing my mind. We all like that name. I will tell you, if they were all as good as Brodie and Lola for that matter I would get another..well in a couple of years! Brody and Brady sound so good together and perfect of twins. I bet they are so much fun. I have a friend who has twin boys who are 3 and they are so cute! She dress them the same but uses different colors thank goodness or I could not tell them apart.

    Thanks Libra926...totally forgot about that and need to get a pic of the two of them....if they will be still long enough. May have to wait until they both are asleep or at least ready to fall asleep!
