Here`s another great article:

Hi all.

I hope this is the right place for this.

A few years ago, I adopted an elderly chihuahua and recently a younger boy dog. My husband and I work full time, but I work from home one day a week. Twice a week my younger male dog goes to some super fancy dog daycare/activity centre. So, he's on his own for two days a week. The older female chihuahua is very sleepy and grouchy, and so stays at home for four days a week.

I have a big problem: I have trained my dogs to pee on disposable pads in the kitchen. But they only hit the pads 70 percent of the time. The rest of the time, they mess on the floor (near the pads, and sometimes even half on the pads!) Ideally, I'd like for the dogs to just pee outside, but as I leave them at home for sometimes 10 hours at a time once or twice a week, I know this isn't reasonable, fair or possible.

On top of this, I haven't actually found a pad that's waterproof. As insane as that sounds – the majority of pee on pads will seep through onto the floor. I've tried multiple pads and gave small dogs so I don't really know why this is happening. As a result, my kitchen smells absolutely disgusting no matter how much I clean it.

What's the best thing to do here? Should I ban peeing in my house and expect them after 5 years to go outside exclusively? Should I find a better pee system? Is there one?

Please god someone help me, I'm at my wits end, and I feel like I live in a hovel.
