The Potty Patch pretty much resembles a plastic boot tray with a golf green on top. Oh so this is suppose to be an indoor doggie Port-a-Potty! Apparently, the infomercial claims that your dog will think that the Potty Patch is your front lawn and do his business on it instead of your carpet. This faux grass potty isn't anything new. There are others already on the market. Like UgoDog, Ingrass Puppy Poppy and the Lil PetZoom Pet Park and many more. Depending on the size the prices can range from from $40 to $150. So what do dog owners think about the Potty Patch?
In the video, Paris the dog won't go outside in the cold so her owner thought she'd give Potty Patch a try.
Dog Owner Issues With the Potty Patch
- One owner actually got his dog to actually use the Potty Patch but by only the second day the smell was incredibly bad.
- You'll need to wash it every single day thoroughly with warm soap and water but some say it still smells like urine!
- One lady found her dog laying on it like a new bed instead of a toilet. Her other dog actually tried eating the grass and ended up vomiting all over.
- Two other ladies found the parts slide around easily.
- Another pet owner found that after he washed the pad it took too long to dry. Then he discovered that his dogs wouldn't go on the wet grass.
- The patch has uncomfortably spikey needles and dogs are confused as what to do with it. It looks like grass but obviously doesn't smell the real deal!
- My only thought is that it would be better if there was some sort of pheromone to attract doggies to the grass which would actually make them want to use it.
The Potty Patch may work easier if you train your pup to go on it from a young age. If they're already potty trained they probably won't want to go on it. Hmmmm anyone else have an experience with this product? By the way, if you're interested I just posted the Emery Cat review yesterday if you want to take a look.
