Why did I buy Pet Training Pads? I have been using Pet Training Pads over 5 years now. I have 2 small toy dogs and they do business in the pads. When I first brought them home, it was a middle of winter where we had several feet of snow in the ground with really cold temperatures. So, I had to use the training pads. By the spring same, they both were already used to the pads. I have tried 'Training Pads' from various sources; i.e. local pet-shop, grocery stores, warehouse clubs and also few different brand name pads from Amazon.com. My 2 dogs are very spoiled. They would not use the Pad if it is dirty or wet. So, I have to change often and I used approx. 3-5 pads daily, I also don’t like to have soiled Puppy Pads lying around my house too long either. So, I purchase at least 10 boxes of 100 pads yearly, if not more.
What am I looking for when I buy Training Pads? I am looking for large size to accommodate 2 dogs, made for good absorbent and leak free from the overflow at side of the pads.
Why did I buy this “AmazonBasics” Pet Training Pads? One of the advertising photo shows AmazonBasics Pads 5 layer design, especially 3rd layer caught my eyes. It’s Polymer Core that turns liquid to Gel. Also size (28x34) is large enough for what I am looking for. I am new to AmazonBasics products, so I didn't know if quality will be good or not. But, I like the Amazon policy enough, so I wouldn't worry too much about it. If product is bad quality or didn't work out, I know Amazon will guarantee for refund. It’s risk free.
How is the quality of this pads? In my 5 years buying Pet Training Pads (use average about 100 pads/monthly), I tried many brand name pads, various sizes and different price range. So, I know the quality when I see one. When I order this “Amazon Basics” Pet Training pads, I didn’t know how good it would work. What I saw and read online advertisement for this product looks good, but I wasn’t sure if it will hold the liquid as it said it would. When I opened the box and I spread out the one of the pad. I can feel its quality. It’s almost like I am holding the cloth quilted pad and not disposable pad. It feels thick, and have cushion, but it is firm too. As advertised, it holds liquid well. When liquid hits the pad, it goes down and spread at the bottom layers rather than spread at the top surface. So, my dogs like this. The surface is dryer than the other ones that I have been used.
Do I recommend this to other Pet Training Pad users? Yes, I would recommend this to anyone without any hesitation. At least try once and see it yourself.
Any cons? I can’t think of any yet.
Summary: This is the best quality Pet Training Pads I ever used in my 5 years of using the puppy pads and I will be buying this pads from now on. Each pads price isn’t the lowest, but it has good absorption, thus, it saves money in a long run.
