Humans know that when you gotta go, you gotta go! Just as we can’t do the pee dance forever, your furry friend will need to relieve themselves after a while. They may not be able to hold it in when you are stuck in traffic or stopping to pick up dinner. Instead of worrying about if your puppy or small dog will have an unpleasant surprise waiting at home for you, consider introducingBrilliantPad into your home. 

In a perfect world, we would be able to plan for every time our pets need to be let outside. We know that is not the case. What we do know is that on average, dogs will need to relieve themselves at least three to five times a day. Similar to humans, our dogs are all unique and their tolerance in between trips is determined by several factors, including:

  • Size
  • Age
  • Breed
  • Diet
  • Amount of water intake daily

Puppies get the urge to urinate frequently. A general rule of thumb is that your puppy is capable of holding it for one hour, plus the number of months old they are. You can also plan on your puppy needing to use the bathroom within fifteen minutes of any food or water intake. Unless you work from home or someone is close by to let your puppy out often, getting home that often to assist your puppy with the potty is likely not feasible.Training your puppy using BrilliantPad will give them a designated place to go when nature calls and you’re away.

The smaller your dog, the smaller their bladder. As the pet parent of a small dog breed, you likely notice the increased frequency of letting your dog outside. If your dog has used potty pads in the past while you are out of the house and weighs under 25 pounds, training on BrilliantPad is still an option.Learn more about BrilliantPad and see what our customers have to say.
