Disposable Pads v. Washable Pads

So, should you get disposable pads or washable pads? Learning the reasons to get and not to get each type of pad could help you in the long run.

You should think of these three questions:

1. Which pad will help your puppy potty train successfully?
2. Which pee pad will do the job and save you money? 
3. What are the good, bad, and ugly regarding each pad?

  • Useful: Pads are absorbent
  • Washable: They're easily washed by sticking them into the washer!

  • The initial cost is a little bit higher.
