Why are Hartz® dog pads different than others?

Only Hartz® dog pads are made with Flash-Dry technology® that instantly turns urine to gel, preventing wet paws, tracking and runoffs. The 6-layer construction pad creates a small urine spot, allowing your dog to find fresh, clean spots for multiple uses per pad. In addition, our harmonizing odor technology neutralizes odors.

How long does it take to housebreak a puppy?

Typically, a puppy can only hold its waste for an hour for each month of age (i.e. a 3 month old puppy has to relieve itself every 3 hours). Training takes consistency and patience. Whether you are crate training, paper training, or both, puppies may not be fully housebroken until they are 8-12 months of age.*

What are the main uses for Hartz dog pads?

Hartz® dog pads can be used to protect your home from pet soiling, to housebreak your puppy, to provide a comfortable environment for your dog to relieve itself when you are away from home, as area for indoor dogs to relieve themselves and as a convenient place for your pet to relieve itself when he refuses to go outside. Hartz® dog pads can also be used daily for ailing / senior dogs, lining crates and carriers, drying wet / muddy paws and protecting car seats.

How do I use dog pads for housebreaking?

Place the pad colored plastic side down. Let the dog or puppy smell the pad and get used to it. If your pet relieves itself somewhere else, bring it back to the pad immediately. Continue bringing your dog or puppy back to the pad and reward him with treats and praise when he uses the pad to reinforce that this is the place to soil. Once your pet has learned to relieve itself on the pad, bring the pads gradually closer to the door and finally outdoors to complete the housebreaking process.

My dog has eaten the puppy pad-what now?
