Default Help with my Maltese

My dog is an inside dog. She has been using wee-wee pads correctly
since she was trained 2 years ago. Recently, she has been doing her
business on the corners of the pads, sometimes going on the floor. It
is not awful cleaning up, but i am not sure what to do to correct this
problem. Nothing has changed in the house or the dogs environment to
add stress.
Any suggestions?

Why encourage her to go to the bathroom indoors anyway?

After two years, I would assume that the OP knows that's what works
best for them. It wouldn't be what I'd do, but the OP didn't ask
what I'd do.

To the OP, assuming there is nothing medically wrong with your dog,
you'll probably have better luck with advice if you repost your
question to rec.pets.dogs.behavior.

I was just wondering, not criticizing.

It's a Maltese. Lots of people with toy dogs use pee pads or papers.

I would have liked to have trained my jrt to use a litterbox, being that
he hates cold and/or wet weather. However, since I already had two BCs
who were already using the outdoors for that purpose it was just tons
easier to take advantage of the fully trained behavior coaches to show
the new guy what to do. There's nothing like another dog peeing to
stimulate an immediate desire to urinate. Use your chosen phrase "Go
potty" or whatever, and praise, praise praise when its done.
