Q. I live in an apartment and recently adopted a puppy. Is it wise to use pads inside the apartment in addition to going out?
A. If you use pads in addition to taking the pup outside, you are telling the pup its okay to pee inside of the house, so when accidents occur you have no right to be upset. Well, not that you should be upset anyway, since scolding your pup for accidents will only cause your pup to fear peeing in front of you.
There are pads that resemble patches of grass and can be purchased online. It's like a doggy litterbox. If you use that indoors, you may be better off because it is turf, which is much like natural grass.
