i wasn't a happy camper at settling to bed time tonight. there was stuff missed in just about every area...gates left unlocked, animals in the wrong places, floors absolutely flooded with no pee pads put down and now 4 urine soaked dogs for me to bath tonight.
the gates everyone knows why they have to be shut tight and double checked. appropriate pee pads are just as important a safety precaution...they not only keep the mobility compromised dogs drier (and their skin healthier)...they provide some stability and traction so they are less likely to slip in a puddle and fall.
appropriate floor pee pads are large thick towels and large flat sheets folded in half or in quarters.
most of the dogs will at least try to pee on a pee pad if it is available which keeps the rest of the floors safer and drier and this keeps all of the dogs safer and drier.
the best way to know WHERE to place the pee pads is..put clean ones down where you pick wet ones up. chances are that i have placed fresh pee pads on my nightly rounds where they need to be.
