sometimes, yes. you want to buy one that is approximately twice the length of your dog, and even better, purchase a post or artificial fire hydrant to place in the center so they aim for that and not just any part of it, however male dogs are like male humans; they are not always the best aim. sad but true.

It depends on how well they're cared for. If you use absorbent pads along with the tray, and clean the tray, grass and grid reguarly (weekly), they will last years.

Question

can a big dog use the small pad?

I have a dog that is over 15 lbs, but the size of the small pad is all that will fit and look normal in my apartment and she will use the small size potty pads fine. is the weight limit because it will break, or just for comfort?

answer 1
It won't break from the weight of your dog. My dog weighs about 10.5 pounds. She is a dachshund/chihuahua mix. I have the small potty patch. I wouldn't want the pad to be any smaller than it is for my dog. It is just enough room for her to sniff around a little to find "the right spot" to relieve herself. You can always try the small one and see if it will work for your dog or not. If not, you may need to upgrade to the large size. Either way, the goal here is to give your dog a place to go. Looks/appearance really should come second.

Unless your dog has really good aim, I would recommend splurging and buying the larger size. I purchased two of the larger pads for my two 10 pound dogs. I position the pads side by side so they have plenty of piddle room. They LOVE them!

My puppy was trained to go outside when I got her. I bought the potty patch and some attractant spray (also sold at PetCo). I sprayed the potty patch. At first my puppy didn't know what I wanted her to do. She would wait to go for walks. So, I carried the fake grass mat with us on walks and when she stopped to do #1 or #2 I put it under her. After she went on it, I let her sniff it and I praised her heavily. When we came home, I put the fake grass mat back on the balcony and let her sniff it again. I praised her heavily again. If she did #2 on the walk, I put it in a bag and took it home with us. I then put it on the fake grass mat on the balcony and let her sniff it so that she would understand that's where I wanted her to go. Soon on our walks all I had to do was put the fake grass mat down and she would walk over to it and use it. After about 2 weeks of this she independently went out the doggie door and used the potty patch on my balcony without any prompting from me. She is now completely trained to go on the potty patch on my balcony OR on walks. It worked out great. Be patient and be consistent. Your dog will get it.

can I use no chew spray on it?

my 3 month old toy poodle puppy has been doing great with the potty patch, except that she drags it everywhere and chews it when we're away (the primary reason we're training her on it). has anyone used bitter apple or other no chew spray on it? I'm just afraid it will make her not use it anymore!

No chew or bitter apple spray should be fine, but she needs to taste it when the spray is wet. So when you spray it, do so on the part she puts in her mouth. You can also pick up a "go here" type spray that contains pheromones that give puppies the urge to go potty in that spot.

Question

How Critical is the Daily Clean-up?

I ask because I'm disabled & unable to do the work. Currently, my IHSS (In-Home Supportive Services) provider has been scooping & rinsing my apt's patio twice a week. If I do this, it would be on the same timetable: twice a week.

I'm considering this because my elderly (nearly 14 y.o.) MinPin has started to randomly potty in the apt. He has cataracts & as his vision has dimmed, he has counter-intuitively started to rely more on his sight -- so he gets disoriented & can't find the doggie door. I figure getting this thing set-up by the doggie door might be the ticket.

So, could I feasibly get away with twice a week cleanings?

unfortunately a dog that is becoming disoriented due to age is not very trainable in any sense. of course every dog is different, but in general when our loveable pets get to that stage we need to have just as much tolerance and patience as possible, forgive them for their accidents, and clean up after them as often as possible, or have someone else do it.

YES! I live in a 3-story townhouse. I don't have a backyard -- only a balcony/patio. I bought a dog door for the sliding glass door and my dog leaned to use it the same day I bought it. I bought the potty patch. I also bought the spray from PetCo that encourages your dog to potty where you spray it. I sprayed the potty patch. At first my dog didn't understand what I wanted her to do. She would wait until we went for a walk to potty. I carried the artificial grass mat from the potty patch with us on our walks. When she indicated she was ready to potty, I put the artificial grass down and she relieved herself on it. I praised her heavily each time she used it. After the walk she watched me put it back on the balcony. I praised her again. After about 2 weeks of this, she started going out her dog door and using the potty patch on the balcony all by herself. It really does work. Be consistent and be patient. Your dog will get it.

believe it or not, the best way to train her to use the potty patch is if you have a friend or neighbor who has a male dog that will urinate on it first! yup! dogs smell another dog's urine and need to urinate in the same place as if to say "hey! this isnt YOUR territory! it's MINE!" and you don't have to actually get the other dog to urinate on it....you can just place it top side down over where another dog has urinated. my roomate suggests you just have a person urinate on it first, but he is a little strange; i'm not sure which suggestion is more suitable, but i wish you luck.
