Your dog will quickly learn that it's okay to use the pad when you're not home. The pad will keep your house clean and clear and will reduce stress on your pet and on your family during the oftentimes tense training period. Your dog will gravitate to the pad because the artificial grass simulates the touch and feel of natural grass. A shallow tray fits beneath the artificial grass to capture liquids so that there are no messes and clean-up is easy. Take the stress and mess out of puppy training and speed up the process. This training pad is the solution you've been looking for.
