Ever get stuck in traffic and realize you didn't get home "in-time" to let the dog out? Wish you didn't have to get up at 6 am on the weekends to let the dog out? Does your dog not like to go out if it is raining or too cold? Nobody to walk with your dog when you don't feel well?
A Mat and Tray System gives dogs a place to relieve themselves when they can't go outside!
- Some trays feature artificial turf which naturally attracts dogs so they can be taught quickly that it is an acceptable spot for relief. The mat sits on top of a plastic insert which allows liquid to drain into the included locking tray for easy clean up!
- There are also Pad Holders for use with Training Pads. The pad stays securely in place and raised edges help to contain spills. The holders are durable and easy to clean.
A training pad holder is great for helping to protect your carpet and floor when you are potty training your new puppy. We did train our Chihuahua puppies with such a system.
You might have heard Chihuahua's are difficult to potty train, but it really does not have to be that way. Your Chihuahua can learn to do his business indoors as well as outdoors on command. Chihuahuas are intelligent dogs, but are also stubborn, so you need to be consistent in training. Remember your little "Chi" is a great actor, he knows how to get his way! I know it is not easy to resist those sweet looking doggie eyes, asking you for a treat, nothing wrong with that. You just decide to give in, or to ignore those begging eyes... But it will be a problem if your little friend makes his own decision on where to do his business in your home! In this case you need to take up leadership, of course accidents will happen, just don't give up. We have Chihuahuas as family members for 36 years and never had a problem with house training.
