Dog Wee-Wee Pads

Selecting the Right Wee-Wee® Pad for Your Dog

By Tammy Gagne

Designating an indoor potty spot can be a helpful solution for dog owners living in the city. After all, trekking up and down one or more flights of stairs with your pet each and every time he has to eliminate can be tiresome for both you and your four-legged companion. Wee-Wee® Pads can make life remarkably easier in this situation. 

These pads aren’t just for city dwellers, however. This alternative to outdoor relief can be a smart idea for suburban dog owners as well. Wee-Wee® Pads can help you prevent accidents during the housetraining phase, when you must leave your pet home alone longer than you anticipated, or if your older dog has become incontinent. Which Wee-Wee® Pads variety is right for your dog depends on your pet and your lifestyle.


Many happy dogs live with owners who work full-time jobs. Unless you can take your dog to work with you or dash home on your lunch hour each day, this means that your pet is stuck indoors several hours each day. Wee-Wee® Super Absorbent Pads are ideal for dogs who are home alone while their owners work. Made for all day use, this variety keeps the moisture and odor inside the pad, protecting your floors and carpeting. 


If you have a sensitive nose, Wee-Wee® Odor Control Pads may be the best option for your dog. This variety offers special odor-eating technology that whisks the urine smell away twice as fast as regular pads. You won’t sacrifice a thing to gain this advantage, as these pads are just as absorbent as the standard variety.


If you live in a colder climate, you know that winter weather can be harsh on tiny dogs. During just a single storm, snow totals can pile up higher than a toy breed’s head. Certainly, many owners of small dogs choose indoor training to protect their diminutive pets from the elements. Even big dogs can balk at the thought of heading outside in snow or rain, however. Wee-Wee® Pads come in a variety of sizes for this reason. 

Owners of toy breeds should choose Wee-Wee® Pads for Little Dogs, but owners of larger breeds may opt for the X-Large size. Four Paws even offers a Gigantic size, which is 140 percent larger than the average house-training pad.


Just like your own bathroom, your dog’s potty spot can be stylish as well as practical. Wee-Wee® Décor Pads come in stylish patterns made to blend with your home’s design. While they may look a bit like throw rugs, your dog will definitely know the difference; every variety of Wee-Wee® Pads is treated to attract your pet when nature calls. 

Four Paws®, Magic Coat®, and Wee-Wee® products are available at major pet stores everywhere in the U.S. Please check with your local retailer for product availability near you.
