Dewey came pee pad trained and I can honestly say that he has never gone anywhere but on the pee pad. My other three are like yours Michelle, a newspaper or throw rug I have to watch them or they will sometimes pee on it. They're OK with carpet though????

I feel like what's what Ein's gonna do if I let him roam free in the house... thats why he is 'confined' to his room where there are NO rugs....

No issues on large carpet, just throw rugs,newspapers, placemats for shoes and boots... or anything that looks like a pee pad...

I have this and the Ugodog and I like them both. I use the Ugodog when I am gone all day at work. I use the Green Dog Toilet as the one I take with me if I go visit someone's house with my dogs. It's smaller so it's more portable. However, it's too small for me to leave with my dogs all day long.

Dogs don't seem to confuse a potty pad with wall-to-wall carpet, but they do sometimes confuse them with area rugs, bath rugs (especially), blankets, clothes, etc that are laying on the ground...or so I've heard, anyway. I outdoor train.

Mine don't have a problem with carpet, but I can't put down a throw rug because it sometimes gets used like a potty pad. I guess it's the same size and shape!

Sammy pee's on his pads or around about the pad - I lifted the carpet runner in my hall to save it getting ruined. Can't wait for the day when I can put it back down.
