Seems to absorb smell well. I can't smell the lavender unless I actually put the unused pad up to my nose but when I do the smell is nice. I have used other brands that drip urine when I pick them up and this doesn't. I have a chihuahua who is a senior and apparently picky and refused to go on another brand. My dog was housebroken but due to his age he can't always hold his urine so he needs the pads. They work great for our purpose.
I recently read the reviews and most of them were negative feedback about this product but honestly I still went ahead and ordered it because I needed pads for my dog ASAP. I must say these pads are really good. I haven’t had a bad experience yet. My dog pees in it and it absorbs the urine quickly, there is no leak. I recommend these pads for small breeds
Through trial and error, I found this Hartz Home Protection brand pads, and I love them. This brand differs from even the better brands because they turn the urine into a gel, making them last longer (usually 3 pees for my pups) and clean up A LOT easier. Myself and my two, 15-year-old Maltese, Romeo & Juliet, are no strangers to puppy pee pads, and typically go through about one per day. Romeo is on diuretic medicine, and when he urinates, A LOT of liquid needs to be absorbed. We went through several cheap brands, only to learn that they can leak terribly, leaving a nasty mess to clean, and essentially rendering them useless. We are very happy with this brand, for the following reasons:Absorbency/Leak ProofCompared to every other brand we have tried, these have the least amount of leakage. Occasionally, there is some urine runoff from the sides of the pad, but I believe this is because Romeo, my male dog, has bad aim. If the dogs urinate in the center of the pad, there are VERY rarely any leaks from this brand.For the purposes of testing and reviewing, I poured water on this pad and another brand, The Buddy Pad. With The Buddy Pad Brand, the material didn’t seem to expand to retain the water, but spread out the water much like a paper towel would. While the water never leaked through the bottom, but it did eventually spread to the sides and spill over. This Hartz Brand clearly absorbed more water, and it could noticeably be seen and felt that the water was turning to gel. The gel prevented the water from leaking through the bottom layer, and even visibly stopped the water from spreading out past the side edges.Odor Protection/ScentI have purchased both the regular variety and the lavender scented variety of this Hartz Pad. Prior to use, the regular variety has no scent, and the lavender version smells fresh and lavender scented. However, this and every brand we have ever used, still smells like pee after they have been peed on.MaterialThe description indicates 5 layers. I cut one open and included the picture. At first glance, only 3 layers can be seen, but if you look very closely, you can tell that the inside layer is comprised of 3. The top layer is thin and fibrous and pretty tear resistant. The 3 inside layers are cotton-like. The bottom layer is thin and plastic-like, and water resistant. In the Lavender scented version, this bottom layer is a cute purple color (as pictured), and the regular variety is a soft, light green color.For comparison, The Buddy Pad Brand is also made of 5 similar layers, though that brand is quilted (see photo- though this doesn’t seem to make any difference).SizeThis brand is slightly smaller than The Buddy Pad Brand, 21”X21” compared to 22”X22”. However, I believe the actual padding part is the same size, and it is just the outer edge lining that is larger in that other brand (see photo).PriceThese are currently on sale on for $12.72 for 50 pads, which is much more affordable than the $25 for the same 50ct of The Buddy Pad Brand. While there are many less expensive brands available (I’ve seen some as low as $0.10 per pad), in our experience, these are the highest quality available, and are truly an excellent value. (Especially considering these Hartz brand pads usually last through 3 pees, while others need to be changed after 1 or 2.)PackagingThese pads are packaged folded thin for convenience. Also, not that it really requires much direction, but these do have instructions, suggestions, and product and contact info printed on the back of the package.Pros:++ Turns Urine Into Gel!+ No Center Leak-Through+ Minimal Side-Leakage (Comparatively)+ 5 Absorbent/Leak Resistant Layers+ Packaged Thinly Folded+ Detailed Info Printed on Package+ Great Cost Value+ Lavendar-Scented & Pretty Purple ColorCons:- None of Significance to Report at This Time* I am committed to providing completely honest and unbiased reviews.

Best thing ever since sliced bread for my aging, incontinent, little shelter dog, no one wanted. He would have been at the shelter forever a s I can keep him for the rest of his natural life thanks to Hartz. Eight years old Pom mix adopted and found incontinent when I brought home and by then was in love with.. Tried every kind of pad from specialty stores to grocery store, until I found these. Perfect. Quick drying, wonderful lavender scent. Will not leak thru like every other pad I tried. Was so easy to train my dog to use these instead of rug or floor. Something in the product attracts canine to do their business on the pad. I simply showed my little rescue companion his pad and let him smell it. No further training. Also, I am very crippled. Sometimes I can't keep up with the old dog's needs, so the pads have solved a multitude of issues. Also, without these pads I would never be able to keep my tiny little friend safe from frostbite in sub zero weather conditions when his miniscule paws cannot tolerate the frigid ice and snow. Thank you Hartz. I am so greatful for all your research and development into producing such a quality product that solves so many canine needs.
I've been using these for about a year. I have an older cat who refuses to use the box but will do her business on these. Thank God. They're very absorbent. I've never had a leak even when she goes near the edges. They smell good too. I've tried several other brands but these outperform them. Well worth it.
