Oscar is 2-3 years old and I adopted him about 3 months ago. He is fantastic and such a quick learner. I live in a pretty small basement suite so was hesitant about the idea of pee pads and figured I could either take him into the yard or for a walk. The thing is, I have a few different jobs, and very random hours. I always make an effort to come home at some point if it's a long day but occasionally he will pee inside. He tries to hold it but I think as my hours are so random he's never sure when I'll be home to take him out. I've decided to get pee pads as a back up so he doesn't have to hold it or feel guilty. Any recoommendations on brand etc? I have no clue and have only seen "training pads" at the pet store, is that the same thing? Where should I put it? As I mentioned my house is pretty small so I worry about the smell. Lastly, how should I train him to go on them? He know he needs to potty outside but I guess sometimes he can't hold it. He has never pooed in the house just peed.
