Default Pee pad help

I need help training my 5 yr old to use a pee pad since she is not so mobile due to her knee surgery any suggestions on how to go about this?

Take her to the pad after she wakes up, and every 2-3 hours later. If she is in a crate/kennel/pen and has peed, take up that pad and put it on the washable one. If she is an outside pup, try and catch a little urine, and put it on the pad. If she poops leave it on the pad for a little bit.

I agree with Susan. Also, if she really has trouble, sometimes putting the pee pad right next to the door where she usually goes out will help her associate the two together.

I have set up a pen with her kennel, food and pad. I came home today and she had peed on the pad maybe a coincidence? I don't know but I have taken her to the pad Everytime she tells me she has to go outside and nothing. Now that she has peed on it maybe it will kick start it?

I have heard that leaving the pads in the kennel isn't a great idea because some dogs are attracted to a chemical in them and try to eat them, can anyone confirm this? If I'm wrong definitely let me know also- but just wanted to put it out there just incase.
I can definitely say that Twinkie got better with using her pads when she associated them with getting treats. She also does better with the ones that have a blue border than the plain white ones

Some dogs may eat them but its not all that common. It is a behavior easily trained away.

I use an UgoDog indoor potty with newspapers in it, but I think the principle is the same - take her every time you think she might need to go - after meals, after playing, when she wakes up and so on. You really can't take her too often! Make sure it's somewhere she can reach easily, but not too near a bed or where she eats. Edie won't use it if I'm stood too close, so when you take her there you might want to step back.

How is her surgery doing? Both of mine had to wear the 'cone' as they wouldn't leave her stitches alone.
