Top Pads for Puppy Training and Pet Incontinence

Dogs of all ages can experience incontinence issues, which occur when they can't control their bladders. Puppies and younger dogs often have difficulty 'holding it.' Urinary incontinence is a common issue among many middle-aged and older dogs, according to American Veterinarian. Both canine groups and their owners can benefit from using the right pet pad or puppy pad to avoid messes in the home.

What Causes Urinary Incontinence in Dogs?

Dripping urine, which can irritate the skin and cause redness, is one of the most recognizable symptoms of incontinence, as is excessive licking. Pet parents may also notice the area where the dog sleeps is contaminated with urine, according to Fetch by WebMD. Causes may include:

      • Hormonal imbalance

      • Weak bladder sphincter

      • Urinary track infection

      • Urinary stones

      • Spinal injury or degeneration (frequently seen in larger breeds)

      • Protruding intervertebral disc

      • Prostate disorders

      • Presence of other diseases such as diabetes and kidney disease

      • Congenital abnormalities

      • Anatomic disorders

      • Certain medications


Adding a new fluffy member to the family is very exciting, but potty training can be a stressful undertaking. Pet pads are a must-have accessory during potty training to keep floors and furniture as protected as possible from accidents. 

And don't forget about the chewing! A lot of chew toys, with the exception of rubber, may cause loose stools. In this case, pads are helpful as well. NorthShore offers a variety of sizes to accommodate small to large breeds.

Adult Dogs 

Many older dogs have medical conditions that make a trip outside challenging, according to the American Kennel Club. There are many health conditions that can interfere with an older dog’s bathroom routine, and in some cases, indoor potty training with pet pads might be the solution to accidents in the house.
