Why is she doing this if you have explained to her how this is confusing for the puppy? I haven't read your other posts but I find it odd that she's doing this if you have had a conversation about it

In one of my older posts (now deleted) I explained how she had a giant ego, I assume she just doesn’t want to be wrong. She thinks she knows everything.

Yikes. Well whenever someone has given me a hard time, sometimes I will text out my logic to them to Make them read it. Although I am at a loss at what you guys will do! Definitely don't want to keep the puppy pads, I havnt seen that end well if the goal is to get the dog to go outside.

I think it was a strange idea to get a puppy with a roommate that you have had issues with in the past, that now seem to be continuing on. Regardless, if you are going in on such a HUGE commitment together, I think you need to have a serious conversation asap before the dog matures and problems get worse. Communication is key here :) good luck!

Agree, absolutely crazy decision

Take all pads and throw them out. Why do you think only Aussie cattle dog puppies need that kind of training? All puppies do. Stop sharing a dog with a person who you cant trust or make proper agreements with.

...I realize all puppies need that kind of training...I was specifying what kind of dog we had to make it easier for people here to help me with other training tips...to combat my roommate....also me and my partner got the dog, he’s in our name but she insisted on helping. We all simply share an apartment so we all had to agree on the puppy.

Never ever use puppy pads..... Everyone I know that's used them their dogs now piss and shit freely in the house.

I’ve tried explaining this to her, apparently to her it’s better for him to use the bathroom on puppy pads so he doesn’t go in the house (ie on the floor) even though puppy pads reinforce the idea of going in the house. Idk my roommates fucking stupid. As of now me and my partner threw away all the puppy pads and hid the big box so she can’t place more down lol

No there is absolutely no positive to puppy pads. Even if the puppy does go in the house you just reinforce it's a bad behavior. With the puppy pads it reinforces that they can do it in the house. Did you get the puppy together or did one of you get it? House training a puppy really doesn't take long, and done properly it's easy. Has your roommate ever had dogs before?

The pups under mine and my partners name, she hasn’t had dogs before but before I moved my mom would take in shelter dogs and taught me how to care for them; I know quite a bit about dog care and my roommate knows this as well but still goes against 1 the shelters paper work and 2 the dog information that I know already.

If it's your dog and if she agreed to having it in the apartment she has no say in it's upbringing. You do you, train your dog right and tell her to water her house plants and eff off lol
