How to get my dog to use dogpads? Help needed.
I have a 5 year old small dog. I have only had her for a couple months, she is great other than she sometimes goes to the bathroom on my rugs. I take her out all the time, but when I am sleeping she doesn’t ask to go out, or even if I am not in the room at the moment (for a couple minutes) she just finds one of my rugs and pees on it. I don’t know why she only pees on my rugs she has never peed on my carpet. So I wanted to train her to use dog pads if she needs to go in the house. I have tried a go here spray and put it on the dog pad but she ignores it. If I put the pad in her kennel (Kennel is very large for her) she rips it up every time. I am getting frustrated because my dog cant sleep in my bed with me at night without peeing on my rugs in the middle of the night. (I go to bed around 2 am after I take her out and I get up at 8 every morning to take her out) What can I do to train her to use these pads if she needs to? If not how can I house train her better? The owners before me said she never had a problem and was fully house trained. I don’t know what to do?
