I really want to start training Lubu to go outside.. But it is so cold. The minute the cold air hits him he just freezes in place and shivers! Can't wait until its warm enough that we can start walking outside and learning to potty outdoors. Pads will probably always be a part of the potty process for us, I will have to look into the washable ones (they are for humans?). One thing I noticed about pads is he sometimes thinks other flat things are potty pads (like a reusable grocery bag) So I have to really watch what I leave on the floor.

Default forgot to add

I forgot to add that another thing that helped us turn the 'potty problem' around was inviting 2 neighbors with dogs to have their dogs 'go' in our yard. Before that he refused to go in our yard, on leash, off leash, treats, you name it. Within a week after having the other dogs go, everything came together. Don't know what worked or it was the combination. He still doesn't tell us he needs to go except in the evening when he waits at the top of the steps. But when I carry him down the steps (bad LP) he waits while I bundle him up and then he dashes out the door when I open it and does his business while I watch from inside, then runs back to the door. YEAH! Only uses the potty pads occasionally.

Pee pads have pros and cons. I was against it initially. But as others have posted about putting one in the bathroom if she likes to go there, makes sense. Angel is housebroken. I started him on pads and then outside. But I didn't want to keep my upstairs blocked off and he loves to potty in the hallway on the carpet! Ugghh! So I put a pad there! If I catch him going for the stairs I can redirect him to go outside with no problem. Also, my DIL pointed out that I keep a litter box for the cat!!

Also, if you have a patio or area right outside your door, maybe you can bring a pad out with you, put it down and maybe she will associate that with having to release outside! BTW, I take Angel out on a leash 90% of the time, even in our fenced yard! It allows me to direct him to where I want him to potty and go quicker!

When I was a teenager, we had a cat that always went outside. As she got older, she couldn't hold it, so we gave her a litter box, and our little dog started using it too! I think she was jealous. Haha. It would be awesome if I could train Lubu to go with the cats!
