House Train Your Puppy with Purina Pet Gear! Plus, a Puppy Pad Giveaway (10 Winners!)

About 8 months ago, our family adopted two adorable kittens! Fortunately, our cats took to the litter box right away, and we haven’t had any problems house training them. Puppies, however, aren’t always as easy to train as kittens. If you’ve got a new puppy or have had one in the past, I’m sure you spent lots of time rushing your puppy out the door before he or she made a mess on the floor. But, just like potty-training children, most puppies are going to have many “accidents” in your house before they finally get the hang of doing their business outdoors. Thankfully, Purina has several products designed to make puppy care easier for you.

Purina Pet Gear Ultra Dry Training Pads: These feature an exclusive DryStep cover designed to prevent leaks and paw prints from tracking through the house. The pad features an innovative top layer that contains thousands of microfunnels to quickly channel liquid into the middle, where it’s rapidly absorbed and locked away, preventing it from coming back to the surface, even as dogs walk across. The leak-proof backing also protects floors and carpets. The pads are available in 10-count, 20-count and 40-count, and come in an easy-to-store box for convenient dispensing. [Click here to watch an amazing video showing how Purina Pet Gear Ultra Dry Training Pads compare to the competition. I was impressed!]

Purina Pet Gear Pet Stain & Odor Eliminator: This superior new cleaning agent thoroughly removes pet stains and the odors that lead puppies back to the same spots, all without damaging carpet or furniture. The proprietary pro-enzyme formula is a blend of six enzymes that break down stains and eliminate odors naturally. Designed for use on carpet, upholstery, pet beds, litter boxes and any water-safe surface, this product is safe for use around children and pets.

My twins love dogs, so they’ve been working on us to get them a puppy. I’m not sure they’re quite ready for the responsibility, but when they are, I’m definitely going to have Purina Pet Gear products on hand. By the way, these products are also great if you’ve got an older dog with bladder control issues. Please visit www.purinapetgear.com to learn more about Purina Pet Gear products, and pick them up at your local Walmart store!
