Ha, that made me giggle!

I don't use them with Douglas but sometimes cover my ferret's favorite spots with them. (I am having trouble litter training one of them..)

They are absorbent and work quite well though I personally would not want a dog who pottied indoors.

I hate pee pads...or any method of inside pottying--I think it confuses them. BUT saying that I do use pads for pens of my show pups (where they stay when I'm working & at night). We just got a new boy & at 14 weeks he is near 100% reliable using litter. I'm impressed so I'm trying to train one of my others who hasn't really taken as well to the pad as much as I'd like. Makes sense though...the wood pellets have a very distinct texture/smell so they're not as apt to pee in beds, on rugs, etc as they would be being pad trained.

I have heard litter trained puppies are VERY reliable and after seeing for myself I plan on litter training future puppies. It's awesome to get a puppy & be able to have him run free w/o having to chase him around making sure of no potty accidents.

My male chi Joey uses a litter box, but I put the litter box on pee pads, so that there's about a foot of pee pad outside the litter box on all 3 sides (except the wall side).
Like many males, his aim sometimes is unpredictable and he likes to aim AT something, so I also attach pee pads to the wall behind the box, because he is sometimes overzealous and hits over the box sides, tiny as he is.
To protect my carpets against any leakage, I found something called Good Nites bed pads. They are really large--intended to cover across a twin size bed--and they have adhesive on the corners to hold them in place on the carpet, and then I put the pee pads well inside the borders of those pads, which are waterproof backing. It works well.
Now, all I have to do is find a small fire hydrant that can go in his litter box!
And yes, he also gets in the box to do his business, but sometimes his butt hangs over the side. .)
