Question for those with dogs in apartments (or uses pee pads)

Hey all! We are all moved in to the new place! (by moved in I mean all my stuff is here but not really fully packed) And I need some advice!!! I got Wilson peepads to use since we no longer have a yard and I set up two areas for him. One on the balcony and one in our storage room off the balcony (has no door). Ive spritted it down with some puppy trainer that supposed to make it smell like pee.

What else should I be doing?!?! Its the first day here so I can understand that he will be stressed and I'll be patient with him since he does have to kinda re-learn this and all that but I need help! He seems pretty stuck on going to the bathroom on grass but I know I can teach my old dog new tricks, I just need some tips and suggestions!!!

Every time he goes to the door to ask to go out like he did back home I lead him to one of these area's (mostly the storage room as thats where I would prefer him to go) but so far no peeing.

Thanks in advance, I figured I'd use the blog to get some help =p

Back to your regularly scheduled posts

... not that they have been regular ever! LOL

Well I have a good reason for not updating the blog, really! First of all there was really nothing to say or to tell, Wilson still is on crate rest. That and I've been spending a lot of time looking for a place to rent that will allow dogs, fit my room mate and my wants/needs and within my price range.

Chelsea's New Home Wish List
1. It's in a good neighborhood
2. Close to main bus routes
3. Has a yard/a huge balcony for Wilson
4. Not a lot of stairs - either in the place or to get into the apartment. Bad for Wilson.
5. Lots of storage

And I finally have! Whoooow! AND ITS RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET FROM A DOG PARK! I'm excited! It means more dog park visits!

Annnnnd now that I've spouted almost none related Wilson stuff here are some pictures of the lovable long haired pup.
