It's been years since I had to potty train a puppy. I plan to crate train again. Are puppy pads necessary? I am thinking that puppy pee pads encourage going to the potty on the pad inside the house. Should I just skip the pads because I plan to potty train for outside bathroom trips?

A lot of people like pee pads and use them.
I don't personally like them but I do understand why they would benefit some (i.e. living in a high rise condo, being gone long hours of the day, medical problems, etc).
Personally, I see more success with outdoor training and less accidents and confusing rugs for pee pads, missing the pad, etc.

I have never used pee pads. Dogs potty outside in my house as well as my parents. The yorkies have taught themselves to use the kitty litter occasionally in an emergency.

If my goal was solely outdoor potty training, then I wouldn't use potty pads.
My schedule has always been kinda hectic & unpredictable, so potty pads work great for my pup, as she has bathroom access regardless of my ability/inability to be home to let her out at a certain time.
