Default Potty Pads mistaken for carpet?

Is it common for dogs to confuse potty pads and carpet? Our rental is 99% carpet. I want to train the boys to use potty pads-but I'm wondering if something like an ugdog would be less confusing for them? Any ideas, suggestions or feedback?

I don't think they will be confused by a potty pad at all. I never experienced a fluff confusing carpet for a pee pad.

Giovanni like his potty pad to be placed on carpet, not on the kitchen floor!

I use Ugo Dog. Gustave is a destroyer of paper and would start playing with the pad. The UgoDog solved that.

But as for confusing with carpet, I don't think he ever did that.

Lola will not go on a pee pad unless it's on a carpet. When we go to someone's house, if she hasn't peed in a while, I have to watch her like a hawk because she'll sometimes go on a rug even if I put a pee pad out for her (usually this happens if the pee pad is on hardwood floor. I don't know why. She's really quirky about that).

The UgoDog is one of our favorite things . Its texture is different than flooring, it's easy to clean and no paper to chew up. We really do love it. If I'm not mistaken, it even comes with a money back guarantee. Totally worth trying out. We really do love it.

Dom goes on the pad and our house is all carpet. In the beginning I put the pads in 3 different areas and within a month it was clear where is his favorite spot so now there in only one pad in the hallway.
He goes on the pad 99% of the time. When we get home after being out for a while, instead of letting Dom go free I sit close to the pad and tell him to go potty. Same in the morning. This way you don't take chances with the carpet.
I wish he poops in the pad tho but that's another story.

Bitsy and Rylee were trained on pee pads before I got them..and now I have them go outside. If they see a throw rub or newspaper falls on the floor,they will pee on it....
