It is two pieces one is like a cheap piece of Astro Turf on a plastic tray. I cannot see anything that makes it special in terms of the absorbency or anything... it did not make my puppy want to use it and it is very small. Like less than two feet by two feet so smaller breeds and puppies are the only ones who would work for this.
You have to take the thing apart and clean it in your shower/tub every day unless you want it to smell bad as there is no deodorizing aspect. I personally would rather use the pee pad and just toss it in the trash than wash pee out of this grass in the shower.
In theory this is a great idea but in practice it needs some finessing to be something workable.
We bought this potty -- as opposed to the many other potty options -- because it was the only one that would fit inside of a 48" crate and still leave room for a doggie bed and water bowl. When we're out, we can leave our dog in the crate and not have to worry about making her hold it too long. We also had a problem with our dog getting up in the middle of the night and pottying on the living room carpet, and this has completely solved that issue.
For training, when she started doing her "potty dance" late at night, we'd set her inside the crate and then physically block her in with our body (instead of closing the door), so she didn't feel locked in. The first several times, she'd wander around the crate confusedly, push at us with her nose in an attempt to get out, and then finally relieve herself on the potty. Each time, we'd give her a ton of praise and petting for using her potty. Initially, she really did NOT want to use the potty and used it only because she was trapped and had no other options, so we spent a lot of time sitting in front of the crate waiting for her to go (takes patience!), but the waiting time got a teensy bit shorter each time. After two weeks of doing this at night (we take her out during the day), she started wandering over towards the potty when she needed to go but she wouldn't actually use it unless we put her inside and waited for her to go. Now it's been a month and she just uses the potty when she needs to -- with ZERO accidents in the house!
USAGE / CLEANING
The Petmaker potty has a layer of faux grass that sits on top of a raised plastic drainage tray, and both of those fit inside a larger black tray. The grass and the drainage tray aren't "locked in" and could slide around if you push them, but this hasn't been an issue for our 11-lb dog. We put a potty pad underneath the drainage tray, which makes clean-up MUCH easier. Our dog uses the potty multiple times per week and we haven't had any issue with smell. We change the pads every 1-2 days and then clean the whole potty in the tub with a diluted bleach solution about once a week. Our dog has shown zero interest in chewing on the grass or the pad, but she isn't much of a chewer in general.
- Fits inside of a 48" crate with plenty of room for a doggie bed
- Big enough for an 11-lb dog to sniff around / circle around / find the "right" spot
- Faux grass layer is raised and drains quickly -- does not stay wet after use
- No issue with smell when using potty pads + cleaning 1x per week
- No more spills or misses (compared to potty pads alone)
- NO MORE ACCIDENTS IN THE HOUSE!
- Grass does "shed" -- we're still finding stray strands all throughout the house
- Grass takes a while to dry after cleaning -- we may buy a second one for use while the first is drying
- Bottom tray is shallow -- if you're not using pads, it would be very easy to spill pee everywhere when emptying
That being said, I gave this one a shot. I had read another review that recommended combining this product with a puppy pad for easier clean up, and that's exactly what I did. Others also mentioned their pup had little interest in using it and had to coax their pet to use it by leaving them without an option to go elsewhere. This luckily wasn't my experience. All I had to do to get my little guy interested, was put it in the area of most common offense and wait. I didn't introduce it to him, or make a big deal of its arrival. I unpackaged the product, which was delivered in an enormously oversized box, added the puppy pad below both the turf and middle layer (see pictures), and placed it on the floor in front of my husband's sink. It was used within 24 hours of initial set-up! Also worth noting, we were able to move this potty to a more convenient location so that the hubby could continue hygiene as usual; the dog was unbothered and has continued using his new bathroom, even in its new location. I plan on buying another for my daughter's room because if he, for whatever reason, sleeps with her, he inevitably has the same problem there. I'm sure he'll be happy to have access to a restroom on either side of the house. And at this price, it's totally worth it.
Regarding the use of the puppy pad, I purchased the Neat'n Dry pads in the size photographed. Be advised, the seller has the default listed 10-pack for the same price as the 50-pack I purchased. These fit PERFECTLY in the medium sized trainer. The stains photographed are from a couple of days use. I'll likely replace this tomorrow. I haven't noticed any odors from the turf or the pads, even after the time mentioned. I do plan to follow the maintenance care suggested by others: exchange the pad for liquid waste once 1/2 saturated (Approximately 3-5 days for my 4lb dog); remove solid waste as it occurs; and wash all components, the turf, base and middle tray once weekly with hot water and a mild solution on the plastic parts to sanitize between pad changes.
I'll be updating my review as the weeks pass with this regiment to comment on the durability of the turf. Examining, it appears to be the same stuff you would purchase from any home improvement store from the bolt. If anything did happen to the grass, it seems it would be easy and inexpensive enough to replace. :)
When dog was puppy she used this immediately I didn't have to try to encourage it - it was instant
Medium size is good but I suggest purchasing two and pushing them together because my chihuahua likes to have enough room to circle before she pees or poops
There's a three layer system (grass, then bubbly plastic sifter and plastic tray)
I use a pee pad at the very bottom (place on tray, the put bubble sifter over pad then grass over sifter) and it helps reduce smells and easier to keep clean
Grass is a bit stinky to rinse out, but use vinegar or apple cider vinegar or a special urine removing enzyme product to help keep grass clean.
It's perfect for windy balconies - the trays don't blow away or fly apart in windy conditions
The dog loves this contraption
If you leave it too long the grass really stinks when you go to rinse it with warm water so make sure if you are in apartment to open windows and try to put your hair in scarf so it doesn't permeate your hair.
Buying replacement grass is expensive, but if you keep it relatively clean it can last a long time
You're better off just buying the whole kit again cuz the grass replacement is only a few dollars cheaper
If you have a large or medium sized dog I'd get 3-4 of these so they can have the room to circle. Also if you have a male dog you can buy these little fire hydrant things that can sit on the grass to encourage him to pee there. Overall I'm happy I purchased 2 of these things and I recently just bought 2 more. I'll keep buying them in the future as well.
(Initial review)It took a few weeks for my puppy to realize to JUST go on the little grass mat, but he soon realized that he’s a good boy when he goes there and I couldn’t be happier. It’s easy to clean up, I just spray it with a hose or clean it in my laundry tub.
This product works as described, I use mine with a disposable pad underneath just for ease of cleaning.
Hose it down a couple of times a week as it can start smelling, but that is a given
Overall I’m happy with the product, it rains allot where I am and it saves me from getting my baby wet each time he needs out
