A smarter puppy pad


Both systems wrap and seal waste to keep your home smelling clean and fresh. However, BrilliantPad Smart adds a camera, WiFi and a free app that keeps you informed and helps you keep your pet healthy throughout their entire life. 

BrilliantPad Originaldoes not have a camera, WiFi or the app.

If your small dogcurrently uses puppy pads and you commit to a few minutes of training a few times a day, most dogs will successfully transition to using BrilliantPad within a few weeks. 

Setting up a confinement area is stronglyrecommended for puppies. Use an indoor gate, fence or pen to create a space with BrilliantPad and your dog’s bed, food, water and a few toys. Put your dog on BrilliantPad 10-15 minutes after they eat, drink, play; anytime you see them circling and sniffing; immediately after they wake up; and before bed. Most newborn puppies generally pick up using BrilliantPad quickly. 

We have additional training recommendations fordogs that currently use grass patches or another indoor potty.

NOTE: BrilliantPad is not recommended for adult dogs that do not currently use pads unless you are willing to make a significant training effort, and training seniors or dogs that are timid and generally afraid of new items in your home can be very difficult.

BrilliantPad works differently and lasts longer than regular pads, can be used more times before disposal, and can save you substantial time and money spent on cleaning supplies. 

BrilliantPad’s motorized operation lets you skip the messy part of having to see, smell or touch messy waste. Most importantly, BrilliantPad is always clean and available for your dog, which reduces their stress and provides freedom and independence to go potty anytime. 

Further, BrilliantPad can help you identify when your dog may be sick. Early detection and rapid response is key to keeping your dog healthy. Regular pads and outdoor potty activity can miss these important health clues. BrilliantPad empowers you to be proactive to prevent small issues from escalating into more complex, more expensive health issues. 

Net net, BrilliantPad handles the mess so you don’t have to, keeps you informed, and lets you spend less time cleaning so you can enjoy more time cuddling. When you consider some of these factors, we are confident you will conclude that BrilliantPad is a superior value.

BrilliantPad has the following features that other indoor potties don’t have:

- Mess-free disposal

- Leave it alone for days or weeks

- Self-cleaning for #1 and #2

BrilliantPad is better than using traditional pads for 3 reasons:

-  BrilliantPad is convenient. Its is always available and ready for your dog to use.

-  BrilliantPad is Clean – BrilliantPad automatically removes waste for hands-free cleaning. There are also no torn pads scattered around the house

-  BrilliantPad is Smart – it advances the pad automatically so you never see, smell or touch waste.

Traditional pads remain wet for a long time and are typically discarded after each use. 

BrilliantPad works differently than regular pads by spreading out the urine for rapid absorption. BrilliantPad is dry shortly after each use and can be reused several times before disposal. 

Regular pads are tossed in their entirety after each use, but with BrilliantPad, you can advance as much or as little pad as needed to provide your dog with a clean potty spot. This helps some customers stretch the life of each pad roll. 

The American Kennel Club recommends keeping young puppies indoors until their vaccines kick in. BrilliantPad is hygienic and more sanitary than regular pads, and it’s safer than sidewalks and the dog park during this critical time.  

Some dogs use BrilliantPad exclusively throughout their entire life. BrilliantPad minimizes exposure to bacteria and parasites, and there are no coyotes or predators. 

BrilliantPad is also a great option for dogs with allergies to grass, fleas and outdoor ailments. 

Long lasting, absorbent BrilliantPad Rolls. Equivalent to 21 large pads. Includes both original and eco-friendly replacement rods and caps.

It has five layers of material that combine to provide durability, absorption, and cleanliness.

Always start with the following:

Let your dog get comfortable around BrilliantPad.

Encourage your dog to explore on BrilliantPad

Let them associate potty activity with BrilliantPad

There are a lot of ways to train your dog to use BrilliantPad. (Choose what’s appropriate)

- Confinement Training

- Transition from regular pads

- Transition from grass patch

- Training a Nervous dog

Yes, since they are easier to train and can easily adjust to potty behavior.

BrilliantPad is not recommended for adult dogs that do not currently use pads unless you are willing to make a significant effort in training.

Yes, you can use it with multiple dogs. It is recommended to advance the pad as necessary to maintain a mess-free and clean potty

No, BrilliantPad doesn’t replace taking a dog outside. 

BrilliantPad’s staff takes its dogs outside regularly to exercise and socialize, and you can learn how to hybrid-train your dog to go potty outside and use BrilliantPad. We use BrilliantPad for convenience and independence. It keeps us informed and helps us protect our dog’s health throughout their entire life. 

BrilliantPad is for dog lovers that want to give their dog the freedom and flexibility to go potty anytime. Imagine if you were unable to use the bathroom in the middle of the day or night. Not a pleasant thought, right? Your dog doesn’t like that either!

BrilliantPad lets your dog go potty anytime without getting uncomfortable waiting for you. This provides relief anytime you are stuck away from home. BrilliantPad is always there and clean – even when you are away – and keeps the peace until you return. 

Further, BrilliantPad lets the elderly, sick and disabled pet parents or anyone with mobility limitations enjoy the companionship and benefits of pet ownership.  

BrilliantPad measures 34 x 24 inches. The control module, which holds the motor, camera, WiFi, sensors and controls adds 2 inches of width. The supply side is 4 inches tall and the waste end is 6 inches tall. The step up height for a dog is about 2 inches and the exposed pad area measures about 24 x 23 inches.

Watch: Where could BrilliantPad fit in your home

BrilliantPad wraps and seals the soiled pad to minimize odor and keep your home smelling clean and fresh. I'd get rid of the last sentence unless you're linking to something. It just seems odd as a stand alone.

Three technologies work together to minimize unpleasant odors:

Absorbent polymer in the pad neutralized odor and turns liquid waste into gel 

A barrier lining wraps and seals the entire pad

Storage compartment is covered and locked to minimize air flow.

Kevin O'Leary smelled a loaded roll Shark Tank episode 914. Watch episode on ABC.com and see his surprise at the lack of odor!

BrilliantPad eliminates the daily chore of touching soiled puppy pads. BrilliantPad is hands off for days at a time, then replacing a used roll is fast, easy and clean. When the entire roll is used up, lift the roll easily for easy disposal. There is no need to unwrap a soiled pad or touch dirty bits. Everything messy is sealed while your hands touch surfaces that are clean and dry.

Then toss the entire used roll and start the new roll with a fresh set of rods and caps that make handling easy. 

Our new take-up assembly is made from paper and recyclable plastic to minimize the impact on the environment. Click here to learn about our new Eco Rolls

All replacement rolls come with fresh take-up rods and end caps.

    Skeptical at first

    I was hesitant to spend $150 on a pad holder. I contemplated for a week. But, looking at some basic pad holders that cost $30-$60 I decided to make the purchase. Am I glad I did!! First and foremost, I am a pet professional. I am a groomer, trainer, and canine nutritionist. So, my entire life has gone to the dogs. The BrilliantPad is an amazing system and works as they describe. It give me peace of mind knowing my best four legged friends have a clean and sanitary area to ***** —even when I’m not home. Owning toy breeds means smaller bladders and more frequent urination and the BrilliantPad stands ready to go. The rolls are a breeze to load and the eye seeing eye knows when the dog is on the machine. Now, I can come home from a long day in a salon cleaning up poo and *** and not have to do it at home. I will never not be with out my BrilliantPad. I even made sure to subscribe to the roll delivery to never run out of pads. (I’m not a person who likes subscription programs) If you are on the fence...don’t be. You’ll be glad you made the purchase.

    Long needed invention!

    We’re thrilled with our BrilliantPad and how easy it’s been to train our dogs to use it! Having small dogs, we’ve always used puppy pads and had to set out several at a time to get through the day. But having the automated timer helps avoid laying out 3 or 4 at a time! And no smell lingering!

    Best invention. Ever.

    I bought this as a gift for my uncle and aunt who both recently had surgery, and the old ***** pad system was going to be a problem because of the constant bending etc. I knew the BrilliantPad system would make their lives so much easier. They tell me pretty much every day how much they and their pups LOVE BrilliantPad and how happy they are. Without BrilliantPad, they would not only be dealing with disgusting ***** pads in general, but also potentially injuring themselves. We were also amazed how quickly the pups adapted to using BrilliantPad. It was only a couple of days before they were completely using it without issue! They also cannot wait for the dog activated timer system to come out. We all highly recommend.
