Q. Our 2 year old dog is trained to relieve herself outside. Is it possible for her to be trained to go on puppy pads as well? To go inside when needed?
A. You sure can though this may be a bit difficult for your dog to grasp the concept at first. I would do basically the reverse of house training... Start with the pee pads outside and get her used to peeing in them, use a command like "outside" or "go pee" when she does, reward. Keep practising outside until she is pretty consistent using them then start trying in the house. It may be confusing at first with consistency should come. I recommend getting the pee pads that say they have an attractant/smell (only noticeable to the dog) verses the unscented ones
