how to stop her from tearing up pee-pad ?
by Judy Swisher
We have a 3mo.old toy poodle puppy. Had her for a week. She is very sweet, and uses her pee-pad most of the time. She sleeps in her crate at night, and does well.
She has the kitchen area most of the day with her toys.I play with her, and hold her several times a day. She want's to tear up her pee-pad, and i've put it in a pad holder, and she still tears the center, and makes a mess.
any help will be appreciated
I'm afraid this is one of the problems with using pee-pee pads, they're very popular as play things!
Unfortunately there's not a lot you can do about this. You can try spraying it with Bitter Apple as it will taste nasty to her when she chews on it, but this may also deter her from wanting to pee on it, which isn't a good thing!
The only other things I can suggest is to buy a crate and start to train her to do her business outside rather than on a pad, it's much better in the long run. You can find tons of tips and advice on housebreaking a puppy on my Potty Training and
Best of luck!
