What are Reusable/Washable pee pads?
Reusable/ Washable puppy training mats are also exactly what their name suggests: puppy pee pads that can be washed and reused. This way, you won't have to spend more money on disposable pads - making them a much better choice for dog owners on a budget. These puppy pads also absorb more liquid, so they are a better choice if you have a larger puppy with a larger bladder.
They are also an environment-friendly solution as you will no longer need to add waste to landfill. You can also choose from multiple designs – something you can't do with a disposable puppy exercise mat. This way you'll be able to hide your dog's messes even more because it will look like a nice little rug on the floor.
Plus, because these washable puppy pads are made from a more durable fabric, dogs won't be tempted to chew or tear them. Even if they try to mess up the puppy pad, they won't be very successful. At most they would crumple it a bit or move it out of place - but chances are they won't be able to destroy it completely. Of course, it also depends on your dog's chewing habits. If you have a "chewer", then the mat may not be as durable.
In general, these pads are meant to last, so they're the most convenient option if you don't want to replace them after a few uses.
The durability of the pad will largely depend on the brand itself and how the item was manufactured. A standard reusable puppy training mat can be used at least 300 times - give or take. This makes it more affordable as single-use packs for the same price only have 100 inserts.
That being said, there are also puppy pads whose manufacturers boast over 1,000 washes. It is true that these products will be a little more expensive and you have to respect certain washing conditions - but if you do, the result should definitely be worth it. Ideally, you should get at least two of these so you can swap them out between washes.
Difference between Washable or Disposable Puppy Pads?
When considering which type of puppy pad is best for you, there are a few things to keep in mind. One of the first things is comfort and what exactly you need in a puppy pad.
For example, some owners want to train their puppy not to pee everywhere until they are old enough to go outside on their own. In this case, it may not be worth it for them to buy a washable pee pad, especially since they won't be using it for very long anyway. Additionally, disposable pads are a good choice for those who don't want to handle pee-pee pads and wash them every day.
On the other hand, some people find the standard disposable puppy pad rather unsightly - like a napkin or a flat diaper that you put on the floor.
A washable mat will have nicer patterns, often match the furniture, and look more like a small rug than a white mat. The owners will no longer have to explain what that white thing on the floor is.
At the same time, the cost difference between the two needs to be considered. It is true that you will pay more for one reusable pad, but you should also think about things for the long term.
A washable pad can be used at least 300 times – but a pack of disposable pads will have around 100 for the same price. In the end, while it may be a slightly more expensive initial investment, it will be more cost-effective in the long run.
Last but not least, you will need to consider your dog's habits. If you have a "good dog" who doesn't like to tear things, then a disposable pad might be for you.
However, if you have a "shredder" that starts tearing up the mat before it even gets going, you may want to go for the washable version instead.
