Pee Pad Holders-
Potty training has been hard but at 12 months for the most part will use the pads unless they get off the pad while using it. I bought some of the pee pee pad holders and they will use them a little but they are balking them. They are nice as they hold the pads in place. Anyone have any ideas how to entice them to use the pads in the holders. Thanks for any suggestions-

Have you tried treats?

I just bought the holder 2-3 weeks ago to retry it. I keep it in the bathroom for easy clean up & I'm glad I did, as she peed beside almost every time. So I started keeping a pad next to the one on the holder. She used it right away. I've been slowly layering the pad over the one on the holder little by little and she's been going "on target" most of the time. 9/10 times she tells me when she's gone so I go in there, point, say potty, good girl, treat, etc. If she shows me she's done it on the floor I clean it up with the pad & show her, praise, etc. once she sees it on there.
Today just the holder was out & she used it when we were home. But poop is a different story, she still insists on doing this right in front of the toilet.
It might take some time but I'm sure they'll catch on soon. Good luck.

The only thing I could think of was..... I bought some stuff from Walmart that you spray on the pad.... it is supposed to help entice pets to eliminate in a specific area...I would spay it right in the middle of the pad.
