This is not that kind of pee pad.
Spoiled Pup Boutique, makers of cute dresses and other outfits for dogs, also makes designer, reusable pee pads. And they are giving one away right here!
Now it sounds like something that would end up becoming kind of gross. But it's not. The pad is made of a waterproof bottom layer and a pretty top layer that comes in a range of designs. Inside -- a double layer of absorbent materials with antibacterial properties.
Why would I need something like this? Well, sometimes, in my line of work, I end up stuck at my job for 12 hours or even more. At the very least, crazy hours and long hours mess with Lulu's routine. I can't be upset with her if she has to relieve herself in the house. So I want her to have a place to do it that doesn't mess with my carpet.
But does it work?
I was pretty amazed! First off, you don't get a heavy smell from the pad when it's used. When you clean it, the pad holds its shape well, so the absorbent part doesn't get distorted. And, amazingly, there is nothing on the carpet. There's not even a stain on the back of the pad, so the liquid doesn't go soak all the way through.

They also come in small, medium or large -- depending on how much space you would want to, or need to, take up for this.
Plus, it's pretty economical. A medium pee pad is $25.49. A pack of the disposables is at least $10. So you're saving quite a bit of money in the long run, and helping the environment.
- No carpet messes.
- Environmentally friendly.
- Washable -- reusable
- Getting the dog to use it. If you're like me and your dog has been a proper bathroom user, it requires a bit of training.
- As with anything -- it won't last for ever. You may need to replace it if your dog uses it a lot.
