To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we do not use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
After reading other reviewers' posts, I can understand why some say these pads are not worth the money, yet others swear by them! Let me first say my experience is rather... extensive lol For years, I've been an animal foster parent with a local animal rescue. It's not uncommon for me to house 2-3 dogs/puppies, 3-4 cats/kittens, and a rabbit or 2 (eh, why not?). Plus, I have my own resident 6 yo beagle mix who puts up with my mayhem. It's typical for my home to house a new foster pet every 1-2 weeks! With that said, I've used these pads with a variety of dogs of different sizes, breeds, and ages. Perhaps I can shed some light on the effectiveness of these pee pads!
From my experience, these pads DON'T leak from puppies and dogs under 10 lbs. Once your furry friend uses his indoor commode, remove the soiled pad and replace. Whenever I left the soiled pad sitting for too long or allowed a foster to reuse the same pad, the urine and feces will leak. Yet, other pads are so very costly --even the ones from a big retail grocery store and especially from a pet retailer like PetSmart or Petco! Those pads also leak when left on the floor while soiled or allowed to be re-used by dogs and puppies 10 lbs. and under. For dogs and puppies over 10 lbs., you'll be hard pressed to find any training pad that won't have some leakage.
So what's a good pet owner to do when they can't promptly remove a soiled pad or who are fortunate to raise a large breed puppy or house a not yet housebroken adult rescue dog? In these situations, you can save money by only allowing the potty area to be on tiled or laminate flooring. Or, you can invest in a hard, plastic pee pad container in which you place the disposable pee pad on top of.
Just to throw out a few other tips for housebreaking clean-up... do you have a fun-loving, rambunctious puppy who just loves to tumble right into the pee pad area, toss those training pads around, and then pee RIGHT NEXT to the pee pad (if only it hadn't been tossed around)?! A nice trick is to pickup a thin roll of masking tape and tape off the corners of the pee pad so they stay put! This works on carpet as well; however, you might want to line your carpet with either a hard, plastic training pad or trash bags in order to save your carpet.
Regardless of which route you go for your training pad purchase, DON'T use newpapers! Some people try to cut costs by using old newspapers, and if you're in a bind until the morning, these will do in a pinch. However, newspapers definitely and readily leak through. Plus, that nice newspaper ink just runs through to your flooring. It's worth it to buy training pads!
As a pet foster volunteer, these are my go-to for training pads. If you want an affordable training pad with a decent quality, these work great! Enjoy and happy housebreaking!
Mejor que casi todas las demás marcas,pero si quieres que aguante más de dos orinadas se pasará al piso,lo ideal es comprar una bandeja de plástico y así evitamos lo anterior,y desde luego que el.piso quede impregnado.,yo lo hice y adiós problema y adiós también que el cachorro haga en una esquina y se escurra.
I used these with my 2 month old puppy. They are extremely absorbent which prevents tracking urine onto floor. I purchased a tray to hold the pads in place because on my hardwood floor pup would sometimes cause the pad to slip if he approached it at running speed. I've purchased several packs of these after having such a good experience with the first pack. These also absorb urine odor -- can't smell pee which is great!!! Highly recommend.
I bought this item since it claims to be Lavender scented- and Lavender is overall calming. This product has yet to have one whiff of Lavender. It is much less absorbent than the dollar store pee-pad, but it is twice more expensive, since it was supposed to be infused with Lavender. Very deceptive. Made in China I suppose. Not worth the price. Go to the $$$$ store. Save money and frustration.
These work well enough for my 12 pound poodle. I am not sure that they have wonderful absorbency, but they do the trick. You can definitely see where she peed, and the 3 cm diameter around it where the liquid has spread. In saying that, however, I have never had a problem with it not holding liquid. They do seem to control odor quite well - better than the AmazonBasics brand I had tried where the pee smell was more prominent near the pad. Would I buy them again? Yes, if the price was right. Not sure they're significantly better than any other brand I've tried (except they do well for odor blocking).
My elderly OCD Calico cat prefers using pads for peeing. These are some of the worst pads i've used in years. They leak big time plus they are a lot thinner than the pet store's own brand and they have no odor control. I put the first one down last night and when I got up this morning, I could smell urine. I thought she had had an accident somewhere else but nope - the urine was all on and had seeped off the side of the pad. Do not recommend!
We have two teacup poodles and live in Canada. We recently had a three week cold snap of -20 to -45. Lol my girls are NOT huskies so we do not let them out end it is this cold (even with coats and boots). We are thrilled with the performance of these. The pups like them and use these every day in the extreme cold. We have a puppy play kennel that we lined with pads and it’s in a back corner of a family room in the carpeted basement. Zero leaking issues. Highly recommend!
Los compre para mi cachorro husky que se hacia pipi por todos lados. Ahora casi siempre hace en los tapetes entrenadores y absorben mucho mas que otros, por ejemplo los de marca HEB, apesar de venir 100 en el paquete y costar mas o menos lo mismo que estos, tenia que cambiarlos varias veces en el dia, la pipi se desbordaba y llegaba hasta el piso. Con estos no pasa eso, si es un perrito mediano-grande puede aguantar unas dos o tres pipis bien centradas, si las hace muy cerca de la orilla es obvio que ahi si se va a desbordar. Los recomiendo y pienso volverlos a comprar cuando mi bebita se los termine.
