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!
