Trouble getting dog to pee on peepad

We currently have 2 poms at home, 2 beautiful little boys. We got one about 1 year ago, and the second one about 3 months ago. (1.5yrs old and 10months respectively)

Due to schedules we prefer our dogs to do their business in the home.

The older one does a beautiful job, after training him for 1month~ or so, he pees and poops on the pee pad in the house 99.9% of the time. Hardly any accidents.

The second one, we assumed would learn even quicker since the first dog is fully trained, still have difficulty even after 3 months. Out of 10 times, he gets it right once or twice. He'll pee and poop everywhere else.

We tried using punishment. We tried showering praise. (hes not very food motivated unfortunately) to not much avail.

He's gotten slightly better compared to the first week he's here - where he'll just drip drops of pee the whole house, to now where he'll release a batch at a time.

Could I get some advise whats the best approach to this situation?

Thank you!

Don't give him punishment. Not all dogs can learn quickly just like us humans. Better be patient and wait for him to do the right thing.

Are you using an pet odor remover to clean up accidents? If not you need to, only enzymatic cleaners will remove the smell completely and, if there is a hint of a smell there, the dog will go there again.

DO NOT use those cleaners in the puppy pad room, you want the smell in there so the dog knows to go in there. Don't be too hasty placing new pads. leave them as long as you can and, just pick up the poop with a doggy bag. (new pads two or three times a day with two dogs. should be okay.)

I have reached this point with my 4 months Cocker Spaniel.. she wouldn't leave the room to go pee or poop unless we take her to the spot... it took her a month maybe before she could move around the house alone... however I noticed she chose 3 places where she peed or pooped... one in my room, one in front of the bathroom and one beside the Dining table!

I put 3 pee pads in those places and started to praise her with treats everytime she got it right... then I eliminated the one in my room then the one in the dining room,

I guess her problem at first is that she didn't wanna go across the flat alone to do her business...

Then now that she took all her vaccinations and I started to walk her.. she still sometimes does accidents and when I caught her yesterday before she pooped & interrupted her she automatically went to her right spot... that's the 1st achievement in 2 months so be patient

And you need to catch her doing it what happened behind your back doesn't count... just interrupting her and carrying her to her spot repetitively she will try to avoid being carried in the midst of doing her business...

I hope this helps... as me too I live in a very crowded part of the city, walking her cant be her only option... too many loud noises down there and people passing by, a good walk would only be past 2 am so we have to have another option for her.

One last thing, as she's too attached to me the biggest punishment when she gets too stubborn is that i get mad at her.. and not let her sleep next to me and just ignore her for a while...

This worked so much better than treats for me... despite she loves those treats

Just keep hopefull some dogs are smarter than others but they all eventually get there..
