I use Nature's Miracle when Laurel misses and always remind her what a good girl she is when I "catch her in the act" of using the pee pad.
I had two pee pads when she was a puppy: one in the bedroom and the other in the living room. At a certain point, I noticed that she was only using the one in the bedroom for it's intended purpose and was using the one in the living room more like a dog bed.
So I replaced the unused pad with a dog bed, and later with the girls' crates.
It is honestly worth the effort and so much nicer than having to remember to let the dog out. Chocolate does not use the pads at all. Laurel doesn't absolutely need them if we are travelling, staying with friends, etc. but they make life so much easier on rainy days and lazy days in the privacy of our own home.
She pees on the pads, wherever they are, not in a specific spot in the bedroom. Before she had all of her parvo shots, I carried pee pads around with me like diapers so I wouldn't have to expose her to the virus when we were out and about.
It really is worth it, especially if you know you're going to be moving house. Laurel picked it up very quickly.
