If you’re an owner of a dog with a disability, you’ll know that little (and big!) toileting accidents are just an everyday occurrence. But just because your dog has more frequent accidents than other dogs, doesn’t mean there isn’t a solution. Enter puppy pads – an innovative and relatively inexpensive way to reduce toileting messes. Although puppy pads are usually designed for puppies who are in the midst of toilet training, they are also an ideal option for disabled dogs.
If you’re unfamiliar with puppy pads, there are many qualities you’ll want to look for when choosing the right one for your disabled dog such as the level of absorbency, odor control, and adhesiveness they offer. You’ll also want to consider features such as additional layers, environmental-friendliness, and whether the pad includes a built-in attractant.
To help you out, we’ve narrowed down the top three puppy pads on the market for disabled dogs.
If you’re after puppy pads that are not only highly-reviewed, but also offer the most bang for your buck, Bulldogology Premium Puppy Pee Pads are it. With hundreds of glowing reviews, an elusive 4.4-star rating on Amazon, as well the accolade of being named Pet Life Today’s “top pick” of puppy pads, these puppy pads have some serious clout behind them.
So what is all the fuss about? Well, for starters, it offers 6 layer absorbency, with Polymer Tech that “instantly absorbs fast and turns liquid into gel.” Another handy feature is the optional adhesive sticky tape that prevents unnecessary movement of the pads which could result in messes.
