I'm only having one problem with the new pooch...he gets up in the middle of the night and poops. Never pee's, just poops. He's done this every night for a week. He's so good during the day, always lets me know when he wants to go out so I do believe he tries to wake me before he goes about his business, but we are both such sound sleepers that I'm afraid he could scratch my face off and it would not wake me up. When he poops in the night it's always on a rug...which is better than the wooden floor that poop blends in with I suppose. I've never used a puppy pad, not sure if they have to be trained to go on them? Or they are pre-poop scented? Never checked into them. Do you think this would work? Or any other advice to offer?
