What to Look for in Puppy Pads

When you have a young puppy at home, puppy mats can make your life a whole lot easier.

Puppies are some of the cutest things on the planet. However, raising a puppy isn’t all kisses and cuddles. One of the most frustrating aspects of training a new puppy is potty training them, but the good news is that, with a puppy mat, potty training can be much easier. These pads help to protect your home from the occasional accident, making them a true godsend when your puppy can’t quite hold it long enough to wait until you get home. But, it’s important to note that not all puppy mats are made equal, and the last thing you want is to throw your money away on ineffective mats. Here are a few things to look for in your puppy pads:

#1. Absorbency

Different puppy pee pee pads absorb different amounts of liquid, and no puppy parent wants to come home to a leaking puppy pad. The fact of the matter is that some puppy pads just can’t stand up in terms of absorbency, and before you invest in a puppy mat, you need to make sure that it meets your absorbency needs. At Mednet Direct, our pads are designed for ultimate absorbency. In fact, our Ultra Puppy Pads® line can absorb up to eight cups of liquid — that’s twice the absorbency of leading brands!

#2. Protection

In addition to being able to absorb the full brunt of an accident, your puppy pads also need to be designed to contain that liquid. If your dog pads aren’t properly backed, all of that liquid could end up leaking on the floor. At that point, why even have a puppy mat in the first place? At Mednet Direct, our puppy pads are designed to give your home the protection that it needs, no matter how big or small the accident is. Our pads have layers and layers of protection, starting with three layers and going up all the way to six, and they have a plastic backing that makes them leak-proof.

#3. Training Ease

How do you get your puppy to do their business on a pad instead of the plethora of other places they could do it in your home? One of the key reasons that puppy pads help with training is that some are equipped with a pheromone that actually attracts the dog to do their business on them. And, when your puppy grows accustomed to going on the puppy pad inside, you can slowly start moving it toward the door and eventually outside. However, not all puppy pads are equipped with this pheromone, and if you’re actually training a puppy rather than just helping to prevent accidents, it’s important to look for puppy pads that contain it.

With Mednet Direct puppy pads, you’re home is good hands.
