I hoped to retrain my dog to use the bathroom inside using this but it did not work. She did not like the idea and the more I researched the product the less I liked it. I suggest doing research before purchasing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by HucksMomma Great when you can't be there!!
We purchased the small patch to put in the kennel with our puppy while we can't be there to let him out. I made one half of the kennel where it has a soft bed area, the other has the patch. He was 7 weeks old when we introduced it to him & he took to it right away. I place a potty pad that has the attractant in it under the artificial grass to make clean up easier. I just tuck under the overlapping edges to keep him from pulling the pad out. I was initially afraid he would try to chew up the "grass," & he started to right off on one corner. I popped his nose & told him "no" & luckily haven't had any further trouble. I think after I put it in the kennel & he realized he had an "outdoor" place to potty, he understood it kept his sleeping area clean. My only suggestion would be to for the company to make the grass where it can't be lifted up on the edges as easily by the puppy. Maybe a lip that the grass easily slides under? Overall, I am extremely happy with the purchase.

This product is an absolute waste of money. Made from the cheapest materials. Our puppy did nothing except lay on it, and chew the 'grass.' Does not help in training!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Sophia Love this product. Highly recommend.
We purchased the Wee Wee patch for our 10 week old puppy before we brought her home. She is now 6 months old and has been using the patch the entire time. A couple of months ago, we started training her to go outdoors and also kept the patch available indoors, as we anticipated traveling with her and wanted to maintain the convenience of an indoor potty pad when in a hotel. The puppy has adapted to the plan. The puppy goes outdoors most of the time and asks to go out. If she can't go out or chooses to use it, the patch is available, and she uses it but less and less often. We are very happy with this arrangement. I use a disposable pad under the grass, which captures, gels and seals the moisture so there is absolutely no odor issue. She eats a raw diet so the clean up couldn't be easier. We ordered the small and use a 21 inch x 21 inch disposable pad. Highly recommended. Traveling with just the disposable pads is an easy transition for our puppy, and there have been no accidents. She is small breed. Chewy's is great!

Rated 3 out of 5 by KathleenC My dog won't use. Plus tray is flimsy to carry for emptying
Unfortunately I cannot get my dog to use this although the artificial grass looks pretty real. The tray itself is somewhat flimsy and I'm afraid it might spillwhile carrying it to empty urine.

Rated 4 out of 5 by lexi does what its made to do
The wee Wee patch was great while it lasted. We lucked out in getting a pup that took to potty training really quickly. The Pad is a nice thick astro-turf with a good hard plastic base. I would recommend putting a no-slip thing under it as it will slide around on hard surfaces. Especially if your puppy likes run after peeing.
A couple reasons we got rid of it:
-our puppy thought not only was it a good place to pee, but play. He's bring all his toys over and roll around on it. We ended up with a pee-puppy.
I tried washing it out and that really didn't work (for me) due to the fact it holds A LOT of liquid. Which is a plus if you consider what its made to do.
Smelled bad after i tried to rinse it with water and soap (someone else said they use a bleach solution and has no troubles).
-The other reason was he had by now figured out (very quickly) how to ask to go out and did all his business outside.
Over all it was a good starter product, well made and was quickly delivered. It did exactly what it was supposed to do and the puppy knew that was the place to go.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sydney This product is a total waste of money!
Puppy pads were hit and miss, this thing was never a hit once! I've tried everything, soaking up urine and wiping it on the wee-wee patch, putting poo on it, repeatedly saying potty, potty, good girl and placing my dog on the patch when I catch her about to go in the house, she won't use it except to chew on and to lay on! I had to give one star to submit my review but it doesn't warrant even one star!!

Rated 3 out of 5 by FoxPets Could use improvement
My puppies actually used it. They were using puppy pads for the first few months and I switched to this thinking it would be easier, less hassle and less smell. Personally, it was none of the above but I was looking for something easier and cheaper than puppy pads. The plastic tray is somewhat flexible so it requires two hands to carry somewhere to "dump" off the urine. And then you have the grass that does not really stay dry so when the dogs use it multiple times their paws carry the residue off the pad. I too tried the puppy pad under the grass but that seems to defeat the purpose of the pad to begin with. I would suggest to the designers of this product to take a page out of the Tidy Breeze Cat litter system, their pad absorbs a ton and it passes through holes so your pets paws stay clean and dry. After using is for a couple of weeks I would probably not buy it again, it all depends on how much time and energy you want to spend cleaning this product. Looks better than puppy pads on the floor though.
I suggest if you do get this product to get an extra grass pad so one can be cleaned and drying while the other is in use.
