Don’t use puppy pads

My tip for the day:

Throw away the puppy pads and train your dog to pee outside. Puppy pads create an extra, unnecessary step in housebreaking.

If the ultimate goal is to get your dog to pee outside, then why do people insist on training the dog to pee inside? No wonder so many small dogs are confused about where to go to the bathroom.

Newspapers are a bad idea. Puppy pads are a bad idea. Fake indoor grass for dogs is a bad idea.

Cats use litter boxes. Dogs pee outside.

What do you think?

(This pup is my mom’s dog, Sophie.)
