I am alittle confused at this. My dog will pee and poop on a mat when its sitting on a hard surface but will continue to go to the bathroom on the carpet even though there is a mat in the area. I dont know how to curb this.
Carpet is new to her, as the place we had before was all tile & hardwood but now there is carpet on one level of our home. Any suggestions ??!

Carpet and pads are both soft and textured. Can you get rid of the pee pads altogether and train her to go only outside, using crate training?

Just from some common sense.. going potty on a hard floor means that she probably dirties herself.. pee splash.. etc. Going potty on a carpet is almost like going on grass outside.. absorbent, not as much mess. You say it's a dog not a puppy, is there no way to train her to potty outside where she should be doing her business?
