I know, usually it's the other way around lol!
Luxie is outdoor potty trained but since I travel a lot and stay in hotels it seems better to train her to go on a Wee wee pad. How would I go about this transition?

I guess it would be the same as going back to basics. Do you give a potty command when she goes outside? If so, use the same command and place her on the pad every hour or so. When she goes, praise, praise, praise. Maybe even reward her with a treat for the first few weeks of training.

Pads are also usually scented, so the dogs are naturally attracted to them. I believe that's why Gemma knew to use her pads instantly when we brought her home. There's also some smelly liquid stuff you can use that smells like pee basically. You just drop a couple drops on the pad and it's supposed to attract your dog to pee on it. I bought a bottle of it before we brought Gemma home but I never needed to use them since the pads were already scented and Gemma picked up on them right away.

Good luck and let us know how it goes!

Try putting a pad where you are now and just see if she goes, if not then just put the pad outside at first! Then bring her there on a leash to do her business so she can't go on any other part. After that you can bring the pad inside and she will probably go there again :) Haru came pad trained as well so she knew how to go on there.
