All dogs go to the bathroom, but do all dogs use BrilliantPad? That answer is no. BrilliantPad was designed with specific pups in mind and we want to make sure you know the facts about the current who the BrilliantPad is for before making the decision to purchase.

Exactly what kind of dog can BrilliantPad work for? In a nutshell: 

  • Puppies 
  • Dogs under 25 pounds who are potty pad trained

When deciding if BrilliantPad would be a good fit for you and your pup, it’s important to take into consideration your dogs’ existing potty patterns. Does your dog use pee pads already? Great! This will help expedite the training process. Maybe they’re familiar with them but are also used to going on walks. This is a beneficial start to training your dog to use BrilliantPad and would make your furry friend an ideal candidate. 

Similarly, if the newest member of your family is a puppy, typically of any breed and is without existing potty patterns, they would be an ideal fit for BrilliantPad. As a potty routine has yet to be established, it will be easier to form new habits compared to breaking older, reinforced ones. 

Next, look at your dog (as a proud pet parent, we are sure you do this often!). Does your dog weigh under 25 pounds? This serves as our primary benchmark for BrilliantPad pups, and let us tell you why. 

BrilliantPad itself measures 34 x 24 inches in size, with the pad coming out to be roughly 24 x 23. In our experience, dogs 25 pounds and under are currently the ideal size for BrilliantPad as they can comfortably do their “circle dance” before doing their business. This is also why we recommend that puppies begin the potty training process with BrilliantPad, as they are typically tiny enough to feel comfortable on (and have enough room to go) with BrilliantPad.

While we believe BrilliantPad to be groundbreaking technology for the everyday pet family, it was created with specific dogs and lifestyles in mind.
