Thanks, I tried Craigslist and I think I will have some luck there.

I kept my rain boots (Russ came home during the rainy spring season) jacket, flashlight & leash by the door so it was easy to get him out fast. When I heard him to stirring around out we went. Honestly just a few weeks of this and he was house trained. German Shepherd pups are easy to house train as long as we are consistent.

Glad you ditched the pee/poop pads
I am taking him out in the middle of the night, every 3.5 to 4 hours. He is still managing to pee huge puddles in between when he goes out.
