Puppy hates being in x-pen at night, ripping up potty pads.
At first my puppy did not do this. Now when I get up in the morning to use the bathroom, before I can make it into the room to go let her out of the x-pen, she starts whining and barking and rips up her potty pad. She also steps in her poop because she gets so excited. The thing is, once I put her baby gate up and put her in the living room, I can leave the room and she's fine. What should I do?

LOL sorry for laughing, but I can picture how you explained it in my head- Hmm well, they have potty pad holders. Have you ever seen them? That will help her not being able to tear it up! Here is a link for them- you can find them at Walmart- Petsmart- Petco or online.
Amazon.com: Iris Training Pad Holder, Regular:...
Can you arrange her x pen set up? Maybe put the pad on the opposite side? That way she isn't near her poo and won’t be able to step in it?

There are washable pottie pads,that she may not be able to rip up. It is kind of like washing cloth diapers. Moving the pad is a good idea too.

That's exactly the reason I stopped using the disposable ones. I got tired of waking up and coming home to a shredded pad I have about 10 washable pee pads that I alternate throughout the week.
