My Boston Terrier Puppy Rips her Potty Pads. How to Teach her this is Wrong?


Here is a question from Leah asking other Boston Terrier owners their advices about her Boston Terrier’s bad behavior.

She says : “I have a 14 week Boston living in an apt, so we’re dependent on potty pads. She is good about using them for the most part, but rips them off of the ground anytime I’m not around and makes a huge mess. I’ve bought the sticky ones, taped them to the floor, no luck. How do I teach her this is wrong when I can’t catch her in the act?”

Does anyone have any advices and/or experiences?

Just throw them out. I’m pretty sure I ruined housetraining with those. They’re the worst thing ever and only taught my dog to pee in the house. I wish I’d never used them!!

I got my Boston at six weeks, I worked in the car business(long hours) and I had him completely house trained in less than a month. I crated him and that is the only way he learned!

Just take out when the get up, after they eat and every 3 hours when your awake…I’ve never used those pads!
