Does your four-footed muse refuse to pee in the rain? Mine too. Often I have pondered solutions: shiver through umbrella-covered strolls with my quirky white Terrier or drop some serious cash on a covered pet run? Thanks to PETaPOTTY, your umbrellas and home improvement funds can remain untouched.
PETaPOTTY stylishly brings the outdoors in for stubborn pets with weak bladders. Each boxy modern unit [made of easy-to-clean, non-absorbent polyvinyl material] contains a simple strip of grass enticing scratch-n-sniffers to take care of business and blame it on the rain. A hidden removable trap pan sits beneath the patch of grass. The units are great for covered patios, garages or right inside your back door. From Chihuahua to Great Dane, there’s a size [and price point] for everyone. We enlisted Kuba, a debonaire Boston Terrier, to test it. The result? A sophisticated one-leg-up response.
For dogs in need of the real thing, PETaPOTTY offers Soiless Sod cut to fit your specific size. The strip arrives rolled up in protective plastic. Simply let it unfurl, then place inside inside the tray.
PETaPOTTY also carries Synthetic Grass which is weaved onto a perforated plastic matting to drain water [both yellow AND the clear kind used to rinse it]. The company suggests starting your pet with Soiless Sod, then switching over to its faux doppelganger.
The front panel [marked PETaPOTTY] simply slides up to reveal a hidden trap pan. Take the trap pan outside, rinse it off with a hose and you’re good to go.
Playing with fire [hydrants]
Every yard needs some accessorizing — even if its only four square feet of turf. PETaPOTTY carries a colorful assortment of fire hydrants molded from a nonporous urethane. WTF does that mean? Basically, it will never absorb any waste. Training your dog has never been so fun.
