A lot of people use pee pads to potty train their puppy. A number of you apartment dwellers will also use pads and/or if you are gone all day at work. Nancy Naeve tested the "Bullseye Pee Pads" to see if our four legged friends really do hit the mark.
You all know that I'm a dog lover. So I had to try the Bullseye Pee Pad to see if Danica and other puppies will go on the spot. Here's part of the commercial.
"Introducing the Bullseye Pee Pads, specifically designed so your dog only pees in the center. The Bullseye Pee Pads have concentrated pheromones right in the center of the pad only. Now your dog hits the target every time guaranteed."
I'm bringing in my friend Sylvia Thorstenson (no relation to our Thor) she has a boarding and grooming business here in Sioux Falls. And you use pee pads, so I asked you if you would help me out with this. And what did you find out Sylvia?
"Well I found out that they work, they absorbs really well. Better than anything I've had before. They never actually hit the bullet, but they did, and we can show pictures of that, they did go on the pads, "Sylvia said.
None of them soaked through?
"None of them soaked through to the floor," Sylvia said.
Alright, so let’s see if little Hope will go potty on this. You know it's going to be hard to get a dog to go potty on command. Oh look, I got this nice place for you. Come here.
"Hope, come here. Now when I first put her down she looks like an unmade bed when I'm holding her," Sylvia said.
Hope, you have to go potty? You have to go potty? Well... She really does a circle around the Bullseye very nicely. If she was a trained Bullseye dancer, you would be superior for that. Hope should we go potty? It's hard with cameras on you. You know no one really wants to go to the bathroom on TV.
Whether their going to the bathroom or not, it sure is cute though. Aren't they? Aren't you cute? Yes you are. So I'm going to say Bullseye works enough that it doesn't go through. So what if they miss the mark? It happens to the best of us. Right? Yes! (I get a tongue bath from Fendy)
The Bullseye Pads cost $13; I found them at the Walgreens at 26th and Minnesota in Sioux Falls. And wouldn't you know it, the day after we shot the story; Hope (the little Yorkie) went potty right on the bullseye. Everybody else missed though.
