The Eco-Care goal is to reduce 400 tons of landfill waste annually while helping you care for your pet, plus they use reused material to make the pads. They say that they have odor control. The issue is they are going greener, but in all actuality they really aren’t needed. For dog’s owners who truly want to go green they can use the more natural route of actually taking their dog for a walk and allowing them to use the restroom. If people do walk their dogs, ECO Care Pads doesn’t need to use any material because they will not be needed. I think that Puppy Pads aren’t good for dogs. Giving them a place to pee in the house instead of the outdoors is going against the dogs natures. I personally have a dog and he loves to go outside to get fresh air, exercise, and use the bathroom. Most dog’s instinct is to sniff around for a place to use the restroom then kick up dirt in that spot. I mean how they can sniff around for a spot if they have odor repellant. The canine training centers states that “When you teach a dog to use the bathroom outside, it learns from the things they smell, and the objects that surround them, such as trees, and grass, to learn where they’re supposed to use the bathroom.” Pee pads aren’t good for potty training dogs because they mess with their natural senses. The training center also said, “A dog’s learning process is tied to their senses.” People are going out spending unnecessary money when they can just take their dog for a walk. Taking your dog for a walk or letting them out of the back yard is a better way to potty train you’re dog, as well as a cheaper way. Not using any material is the best way to be eco-friendly.
