I walked over to Coco's pen and I could see Coco had used her UGODOG toilet during the night. The pen was still perfectly clean. I love the UGODOG Puppy Potty!

After everything was in place in my puppy potty, I left the room for just a minute. Alas! When I returned my efforts had been undone! Coco had walked right over to the puppy potty, and grabbed hold of that pee pad pulling it right off the top of the UGODOG. Even though the pee pad was tucked under the edges, it was no match for a puppy on a mission. She had torn it into a big crumbled mess. Bits of the absorbent substance had been chewed into a million tiny bits all over the pen. The big problem was Coco was chewing on the bits of fluff. I was glad I checked back on her so soon. It would not have been good for her to be chewing on these pieces of pee pad for very long.
The pen was clean once more. The UGODOG still had a Pee Pad under the grate....but the top of the grate was now clear. At that point I knew that I would never put another Pee pad on top of the UGODOG. Now that Coco sees the Pee pad as a potential for destruction, I don't want to give her that opportunity. Lucky for me, she is already so good with using the UGODOG, that it really is not needed anymore anyway.

I am so relieved that I have a UGODOG potty for Coco, because it gives a surface for the puppy to pee on, that Coco will not chew up. Ideally, it would be a great time to also start Coco on a regular outdoor potty training schedule. I am not going to start that right now, because I have travel plans in a few weeks, and want things to be as simple as possible for the family members who will care for Coco in my absence. Instead I will just start taking Coco out for walks now and then to help her get use to using the potty outside.
I really like this method of raising a puppy. So far Coco is not much more trouble than a hampster! We are loving the ease of having a Puppy Toilet very much!
