Puppy Doesn't Always Use Puppy Pads?

My puppy is nearly 3 months old. He already knows how to pee and poop on the training pad, but some times he does it on the floor. Does anyone have any ideas why some time he poops or pees on the floor?

3 months old is still quite young. I think you are on the right track if your puppy is using the pad most of the time. You just have to keep encouraging and rewarding the good behavior. At that age, simply being distracted or excited could lead to an accident.

It's not even until 3 months old that most puppies have the ability physically control those bodily functions. So if you are having success right now, you are on the right track.

Try to avoid using snacks as a reward, many times puppies will be so excited about the snack, they won't relieve themselves completely. The relief of going to the bathroom and praise from you is a sufficient reward to encourage the behavior you want.
