I started potty training at night. I know my puppy likes to go pee a lot before going to bed. I cleaned the floors then cleaned them again to spread Pet Organics “No Go!” Which smells really good like pine trees and eucalyptus. I gave a lot of water to my dog. I watched the video, and try it with my dog (I knew it wanted to go but not on the mulch tray. He was placed on his bed. To avoid accidents, I took him an hour later and then three hours later with no success. I then felt I had to wait till the morning. In the morning, I placed a dipper that he had previously used on the tray just so he can sniff it. Then I brought the dog and it go on the first time that I said go potty. The guy on the video was right, the dog has to have a full bladder. Using his own pee was helpful as well. Also, my puppy wanted to play with the mulch but I kept saying no firmly and also it did not like that I kept him bringing him to the same spot so it stopped playing with it. I will post another review of how it goes.
This was a mess the dog poop sticks on the netting so after one use it’s dirty and smells when you try to clean it everything‘s wadded up on the netting. If you remove the netting, the dogs drag all of the mulch out in the floor and try to eat it I would not recommend this for puppies And I would not spend my money on this again
My three little doggies would struggle to step on it since their nails constantly got trapped with the mesh. They are tiny chihuahuas so i cut their nails as short as possible but still their paws were too small for this. I cut the mesh and that problem was eliminated but then i had little pieces of bark all over.
SUPERB. ICONIC. LIFE SAVING. 100% helped with potty training my pup in a small apartment. I put it on the patio and she used the potty pad immediately and has been using it consistently this past month. No more stress about rushing to the designated potty spot and zero odor. I highly recommend these.
I really like this whole idea of having your fur babies doing their business on the bark tray idea. I bought the large size for my 2 Corgis. Everything works out well for the most part. The downfall is that I still have a bit of a problem with making sure they don't try to rip off the net and take the barks out. I'm constantly supervising them. Also, I love the idea of having poop bags attached to the side, but MY GOODNESS, please make the bags better. It takes me almost 2 minutes to try to open 1 bag. It's so frustrating!! And the bags are not that great too. It's super thin, rip easily, and my Corgis love to pull them out when the bag tabs are showing! Frustrating!! But overall, I would purchase again. Just need more improvements!!
I was using a piddle place before this which is also a great product but I was having trouble emptying regularly and without it being gross. I saw this and the price turned me off but then I looked at how much the enzyme spray was for the piddle place, it wasn't as big of a difference as I thought. When I first put it down I was discouraged as my guy immediately went to start eating the chips and chewing on the plastic cage that keeps them in and then peed on my patio haha. I put the piece of turf from the piddle place on top of it and that solved my issues and he saw it as his place to go. Keep in mind he was already trained to go in this place on this turf from when he was a puppy. He has pooped next to it instead of on it a few times since but we are working on that. I do wish this was just a little cheaper (4 stars for that), but the conveniences of not having to empty anything filled with pee, and keeping my outside area clean are worth it to me. I will say I would 100% not want this or the piddle place actually in my apartment, maybe if I had a super small toy dog under 10lbs I would consider that type of set up but even with my guy being a small dog at 15lbs it would just not work for me. That being said it is on my fairly large balcony and I don't feel like it is gross and don't smell anything out there from this, he has been using it for about a week. I did buy the bigger version since that was the same size as his piddle place, I don't know if that means it will last longer since he is such a small dog but as of now, I plan to replace it at 3-4 weeks and see how that goes.
Got this for my pup also the spray you recommended (bitter) as my dog was chewing the bark and pulling it through the netting making a big mess. If maybe the netting was smaller. Not sure if this works for my dog. She does go on it though and have only had a few days so I guess time will tell.
This product gave me peace of mind to not feel constantly pressured to walk my dog 2 to 5 times a day day in day out She used it but it only lasted a week without starting to smell while simultaneously flooding with pee I would still buy it but 30 something a week is not super ideal every single week Either way ultimately I would still purchase for the reprieve I get from walking her everyday
Didn’t work for my 9w old pup. We used the spray that came with it to “attract” the dog to the potty however our pup rips out the wood through the netting and eats it. We’re stuck cleaning bark all over the house. Love the idea. Was really rooting for this. Disappointed that it didn’t work out us.
We have a 7 pound MinPin/Chihuahua and just moved into a condo with a patio. As soon as we moved, we had days of rain and I also wanted an option for in the middle of the night. This is working great for us! Since she is used to using bark due to landscaping, the transition was easy. We have not noticed a smell, but only use it for pee.
