Many of us already know what an indoor toilet for cats looks like, but it’s still surprising to see so many people not know the same of their paw counterpart, the dog. “Dog Potty” can be very useful for both the owner of the dog and the dog as well.
When you have a young puppy, it can sometimes be difficult to time yourself right and quickly take them out if they need to go potty. This is a perfect example of when dog potties can literally save your life. And your carpets! By placing them in a spot that makes sense for you and your pet, you can also take the right steps in preparing them to be potty trained. Essentially, you are building the idea in the dog’s head that there is a designated space for these activities, and therefore it helps transition to walking out with dogs in the near future. Furthermore, the dog toilet is also useful for elderly or sick dogs who, due to health problems, cannot go for walks as often or not at all.
You might be thinking, why should I get an indoor dog potty at all? Well then, wonder no more and read on to find out which situations an indoor dog potty can be so very useful.
Indoor dog potty available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
Lets face it. No matter how much we love our dogs, or want to be with them, we are all on busy schedules and this might not always be possible. Only a few of us have the luxury to have flexible working hours or being at home all day. So chances are, your dog is being left alone and having them wait for 10 to 12 hours, just to go to the toilet, is just wrong. This is where an indoor dog potty can save the day. And as you know it, it happens quite often.
Quick to clean
A dog potty usually consists of a main catch tray and a special pad made of synthetic grass. The tray can hold a large amount of liquid, so you don’t have to worry about any leakage. You simply pick up and throw away the poop and pour the liquids into your toilet once a day.
Easy to maintain
Dog potties consist of washable parts and they are generally easy to maintain. In addition, most contain special substances that are attractive to dogs.
So should I stop walking my dog altogether if I get a dog potty?
No. Of course not. Getting a dog potty doesn’t mean you should stop walking your dog, but it definitely helps in situations where it’s not possible to walk them.
