How do I change the location of my dog's wee wee pad?


My dog uses wee wee pads in the house as he is not always able to go outside. I am trying to move the spot where they are placed, and he isn’t adapting to the move. He just keeps going where they were, instead of the new spot. How do I get him to use them in the new location?

Hi Debbie,

Clearly he’s used to going on that spot, so you should try to move the location of the pad very gradually. For example, just move it 12 inches in the direction you wish to ultimately relocate it.  Also, place another pad in the new location and encourage him to use it by showing it to him daily. When he does use the pad in the new location, praise him with a treat or lots of love.  Continue to move the previous pad closer to the new location, slowly, so that he continues to use the pad, not simply the old location.  Have patience—he’s smart, he will eventually get it!

Best of luck!
