Good suggestion Michelle.
Bella also did this a couple months ago when she was younger. She would go onto the pee-pad, do circles, and then step off of it and go. It was so frustrating!! I would just watch her in the act of it (if I was around) and hurry up and pick her up and put her on it. I know that is unrealistic to do all the time, but I made sure to keep a keen eye out for her to do it again, so I could show her where to go. But as Yoshi's Mom said, make sure you are using pee-pads and not just newspaper. The pads have the scent on it which atracts them and that is why she recommended rubbing the paper towel with the urine on it to the pee-pad. My mom has a Chihuahua and after she got used to where the pee-pad was and was about a year old, my mom switched to just using newspaper, but that is after she was familiar with how it worked. I don't think the pee-pads are too bad those cost-wise, so I am just going to stick with them.
