These rarely worked for my puppy. He would purposely pee right next to it. I would set these in his crate at night because he could never hold it throughout the night and he would purposely push them away and go on the plastic cage floor. Would not waste my money.
Worked great during the puppy stage! They are priced well, and are always in stock and easy to find where I live. I've used other brands before that leaked through the backing, but these really keep the mess contained without seepage.
These are absorbent. I have been buying these for a couple years. I was very please with these for a long time until the last 2 packages I have bought. When unfolding them, all the inside filler fell to one side and I could not get it to lay flat again. Which meant the entire pad was no longer absorbent. They also stuck together. When opening them up I would almost have to tear some of them to get them to open. Will not be buying this brand anymore.
