Default What to do?

No matter what I have tried I can't get Skippy to actually pee on the pee pad (or whatever). He always puts his back feet on the pad, front feet off, and pees on the floor. Please help. This is getting frustrating and it's ruining my floor. We've tried pee pads, pee pads on holders, pee pads with attractant, washable pee pads, piddle place, ModKat potty...There are probably more.

How do I get him to pee where he's supposed to?

ETA: It's too cold and windy to go outside this time of year.

Maybe try a cat litter box with pee pads inside??? He'd have to jump a little to get 'in', but once in he'd not be able to get his front paws out of the box.? good luck!

I have the fake grass with a pee pad under it in a litter box. Made step inside and outside the litter box so she could get in and out easily.

I like the litter box idea. It likely is an issue in that he simply doesn't really know where he's at because it's just a pad on the floor, hard for him to tell when he's actually on it and of course just because his little puppy junk is on it, doesn't mean where the spay lands is on it lol. If you use something raised, or that has a lip, so that there is a very clear outline for him and it's very defined as to where the pee pad ends and the floor begins, I imagine that would help him greatly.

You could also throw down two pads side by side so he has a greater pad area to pee on, would likely help as well.

In addition to the really good litter box idea, you could fashion something to go around the piddle place or pad holder out of whatever material you have handy to add an edge.

You may also find some back-to-basics training helpful. Below is how I retrained my rescue dog who may or may not have had previous housetraining, but preferred to go outside.

My dog Gobo was trained to go outside when I got him this summer. I found it very helpful to put him in a small area with the pad/piddle place so he had to either be all the way on it, or partly on his bed. He never got his bed wet! I started with a 30" crate I had around, which was just big enough for a pee pad, a bed, and a water dish. I then moved him up to a pen about twice the size of the piddle place. Then to a 4' square pen. He had about 2 accidents when I took away the pen and he had run of the kitchen/dining room, but that was only because he associated the piddle place with the pen, which he didn't like.
