We have had our dogs for a few years now, and potty training them has always been a tough job. We have tried everything from puppy pads to taking them outside. It all seems to work sporadically, with some accidents mixed in. So, we decided to try out the Potty Park! And we honestly believe that this method of training dogs is definitely the best one that we have tried so far.
Potty Park: Official White House Dog Potty
The Potty Park a contraption that looks like grass on top, where your furry friend would “do their business.” There is a compartment in the bottom that then holds the urine. You then empty the tray. If your dog goes “#2,” simply clean it up as you normally would. The Potty Park is anti-bacterial and anti-microbial. So, not only is it easy to clean, but it is also probably a lot safer than pee pads. Think of all the money that it also saves you from the repeated purchase of puppy pads!
So, why don’t you take your dogs outside all the time, you might ask? Well, sometimes it’s icy and/or really cold. Our chihuahua shivers even when it’s 75 degrees. I highly doubt he will enjoy a pee stroll at 20 degrees. Also, when we go on trips, if our dogs are trained to solely go outside, I definitely don’t want our little furry friends to feel like they have to hold it until we get back! How awful! If they are trained to use the Potty Park, they have no problem. 🙂
When first setting up the Potty Park, you will find an instruction manual that tells you everything you would need to know about how to train your dogs to use it. The Potty Park also comes with a special spray that is intended to attract your dogs attention to the Potty Park. When first trying out the Potty Park, I will admit that it took some patience. In order for it to work, you need to keep your dogs on the Potty Park until they actually use the bathroom. Afterwards, you praise them and give them a treat! The first time, I had to wait about 45 minutes. The second time, it only took about 30 minutes. After a few days of training, our dogs are now using the Potty Park on a very consistent basis, way better than they every used puppy pads and we are very pleased! The Potty Park is also a lot more appealing to look at than the unsightly puppy pads ever were. 🙂
