Does your small dog use a litter box or wee-wee pads?

My 2 chihuahua's are mainly indoor dogs and they use a "Second Nature" dog litter box, my sister's Maltese uses wee-wee pads. I prefer the litter box method, what do you prefer?

  • we did when he was a puppy, but i found it gross to have a pet poo/pee inside even in a box, (reason 100 why i dont like cats lol) so he now goes outside after he was puppy trained before that used puppy pads only as a training tool

  • oppsdiditagain... what kind of dog do you have? Our vet doesn't want my dogs outside for more than a couple of minutes if it's below 38 degrees and they have to be bundled up pretty well too. Also, my dogs won't touch wet grass or snow and we live in New England.

  • Also, they have super tiny bladders and can't go more than 3 or 4 hours without "relieving" themselves.

  • We tried to train our dog to use a litter box with the second nature but he would eat it instead so he goes outside.
