One of my friends has been working for an architecture firm for the past year or so, but he recently has had the itch to design custom dog houses. We always used to have dog houses for our family dogs at home. Unfortunately, because I live in a small condo with just a patio I haven’t had the luxury of getting a dog house let alone a custom dog house for my furry friends (hopefully that will all change as I’m looking to buy a house with a nice backyard).
I stopped by my architecture friend’s house the other day and got a first hand look at one of his custom dog house prototypes. My girlfriend’s parents dog, Yuki even had the chance to test drive this doggy home.
Custom Craftsman Dog House
I don’t think he has names for these houses yet so we’ll just call prototype 1 the Craftsman Dog House.
Yuki test driving the modern dog house
Yep, that’s our pal Yuki testing out one of the porches on this little abode. It looks pretty comfy!
A different angle of this modern dog house
Here’s another angle of the same house…and the same dog…this time practicing a sit-stay. You can see on the inside there’s a nice little doggy bed to keep your little buddy cozy and warm.
From the side craftsman dog house.
Here’s a side angle and you can see Luke in the background about to settle into his dog bed. I’m not too sure what the pricing will be on these custom dog houses, but I’m sure you can work on pricing with the designer.
I’ve been looking for a new home (a human home that is) for a few years now and I really like the architecture of this Craftsman Dog House (I’ve been actually looking at Eichler homes). Hopefully if I can find the right Eichler home I can commission my buddy to design a beautify mid-century modern Eichler doggy home for Stetson, Linus, and Adelle. First things first…I have to find a new home for me and the doggies. Wish us luck!
Are you looking for a custom dog house? If so, let us know what you’re looking for in the comment section below. What do you guys think about these custom craftsman doggy homes? Do you already have a dog house for you furry friends?
UPDATE: We heard that the pricing is going to be somewhere between $400-600 depending on the size of your dog. Here are some more pictures of this dog house. Also, I made some updates to the post as indeed this is a Craftsman Bungalow style dog house.
It was a whirlwind of a weekend and I needed a few days to recover, but today I’m finally back at ye olde keyboard prepping another blog post. Where was I you might be thinking???
Well, a few weeks back I was contacted by PetSafe to take part in their Paw Print Blogger Summit. What the heck is the Paw Print Blogger Summit? I’m glad you asked:
PetSafe® is hosting our first Paw Print Blogger Summit. As a premier pet blogger, you’re invited to spend two days at our headquarters at the foot of the Smoky Mountains in Knoxville, Tennessee. You’ll learn who we are, why we’re passionate about pets, and how our products not only save pets’ lives but enhance their relationship with their owners…[Read More]
Who Are PetSafe?
PetSafe® leads the industry in the development of innovative pet behavior, containment, and lifestyle product solutions. We provide containment systems, bark control solutions, remote trainers, pet doors, treats, toys, and a variety of food, water and waste management systems. We’re headquartered in Knoxville, Tennessee but our company spans across the U.S. and 52 international countries – six continents total!
I already knew a little bit about PetSafe when they first contacted me. I recently purchased one of their Patio Door Panels for Stetson and Linus and everyday I walk through my parents house I see the PetSafe logo on the top of their two cat feeders. What I didn’t know was they also owned the Premier brand as well as many other popular pet brands.
One of the 7 PetSafe Dog Parks donated to the city of Knoxville
Also under the PetSafe umbrella:
Premier Pet Products
Drinkwell Pet Fountains
Innotek Training Products
Out here where I live in Irvine, California you’re lucky if you have a yard bigger than the size of a patio. So, I’m not too sure how relevant an Invisible Fence actually is for us, but I have heard the naysayers and know it’s a controversial product along with the Static Shock Collars.
I don’t know too much about Invisible Fences or Static Shock Collars, but when it comes to dog training it’s my goal to learn all I can about all products and training methods and even though PetSafe does make these controversial products I knew that this was a great opportunity to become better educated on dog training techniques using static shock collars and invisible fences.
Needless to say I was super excited to visit Knoxville, Tennessee, the PetSafe Headquarters, and some of the premier pet bloggers from across the country.
PetSafe Paw Print Blogger Summit
I arrived in Knoxville and ran into a few of our BlogPaws friends who were also participating in the weekends festivities. We took a short ride to the hotel then we were whisked away to one of the 7 dog parks PetSafe has donated to the city.
PetSafe Dog Park – I wish we had a dog park this nice!
The dog park was super cool and everything was setup for an awesome dock diving show. I wish we had a dog park like this one complete with a dock built for dogs. I should have brought a better camera because my little Nikkon just wasn’t up to the task. At least you can see the beautiful background…
Yep…that little blurry speck is one of the dock diving dogs…the trees in the back look nice
We got to relax most of the evening taking in the dog park, dock diving, and sitting down for a nice meal as we got to know some of the PetSafe employees and meet with our fellow pet bloggers.
Our second day started off early (super early for me since my brain was still on Pacific Time). We were picked up at our hotels and started our day at the PetSafe headquarters!
A Little Bit More About PetSafe
We had a lot to get through on Day 2. These are some of the hightlights.
I used to love gadgets as a kid. After all who doesn’t want to be an inventor growing up. PetSafe fosters innovation and it was very interesting to hear about how so few ideas actually become products. I didn’t hear the numbers, but I’m sure even less become successful products.
Dog Toys And Gadgets
We got to see tons of dog toys and gadgets. From Drinkwell Fountains to Busy Buddy Toys to Static Shock Collars to almost any dog gadget under the sun. We also got to see some awesome gadgets that aren’t yet on the market! PetSafe has some pretty cool things coming soon to a pet store near you.
CEO Randy Boyd
One of our favorite presentation was hearing Randy Boyd talk about how the company was started. I loved how Mr. Boyd was extremely humble attributing his success to taking a product and basically doing what he already knew how to do which ended up differentiating him from his competitors and ultimately led to his success. Check out this story on Mr Boyd and how he founded PetSafe.
PetSafe Doggy Nap Time
Paw It Forward
Paw It Forward is another awesome way PetSafe gives back to their community. Every week PetSafe has pallets full of returned product. One employee, Joy started the Paw It Forward campaign distributing these products to shelters and rescues in the Knoxville area. Pretty awesome!
Bark For Your Park
Who wouldn’t want an awesome new dog park like the one pictured above? Bark For Your Park is another way PetSafe gives back. To become a finalist for the Bark for Your Park contest, PetSafe encourages communities of pet professionals, owners, shelters, welfare groups, and local civic officials to partner together to help their town win $100,000 to build a PetSafe dog park. Any city can win just get your fellow dog lovers to visit the PetSafe website and vote for your city! Here’s a little more information on last years contest: Bark For Your Park.
Corporate philanthropy was definitely one of my favorite things about PetSafe and their dedicated employees. These were two of my favorite community initiatives out of many going on with the PetSafe team.
Static Shock Collar Training Demonstration
I know very little about static shock collars and was interested in actually seeing the device. I went ahead and tested one on myself. The collar I used was adjustable from level 1-15 and here are my thoughts:
Level 1-3 – I didn’t feel anything
Level 4-6 – I barely felt a little pulse
Level 6-9 – It kind of felt like someone was poking me with their finger
Level 10-11 – A little bit uncomfortable
Level 12 – It made my fingers involuntarily twitch and was not comfortable at all
Level 13-15 – I didn’t even try going this high, but I imagine it would not feel good
The static shock collar demonstration involved a Boxer showing how the collars are used in basic obedience. The collar was set to level 1 which as I mentioned earlier I could not even feel. The dog didn’t show any discomfort and did very well with his obedience during the demonstration.
One thing that was stressed and I myself would stress to people is to make sure you are properly trained on how to use a device such as the static shock collar. They can definitely cause more harm then good if used incorrectly.
What do I think about the static shock collar? I definitely lean towards positive reinforcement dog training. Am I against the static shock collar and invisible fences? No. I think both can be effective training tools if used properly. I plan on talking in more detail about this topic and my own dog training philosophy in another blog post.
University of Tennessee Vet School, Mabel, and Water Treadmill
We also got to have a tour of the University of Tennessee Vet School and met the famous Beagle, Mabel. Mabel was left at the shelter because she got too large for her owners. At the time she was turned in to the shelter she weighed 67 lbs! When we visited Mabel had already lost 34 lbs thanks to some of the PetSafe products including the water treadmill. Check out some of her early pictures on her facebook page.
PetSafe Mabel the Beagle walks the water treadmill
PetSafe is a pretty cool company. It’s a pet bloggers dream! As we walked through the office dogs were sleeping under desks or sitting nearby their owners. Emma and Buckley had wrestling matches during our presentations. Drinkwell water fountains on every cubicle corner. And can you believe that there are no private offices? Randy Boyd the CEO sits in a cubicle just like everyone else!
Of course there’s also the corporate philanthropy! I can’t believe all the awesome things PetSafe does for the community. I might have to start working on my resume so I can send it off to PetSafe You guys looking for a Web Manger, Social Media Marketer, Pet Blogger???
Do you use any PetSafe products? If so, what do you think? Tell us about it in the comment section below.
Disclosure: Our trip to the PetSafe Headquarters was sponsored by PetSafe. The opinions expressed are my own and are not influenced in any way.
It’s been a full two months since we first brought home our Urban Potty Starter Kit and it’s worked great as a puppy potty training tool for both the young pups like Toby (8 week old yellow Lab puppy) and the older pups like Stetson (6 year old black Lab puppy…I guess he’s technically a dog now). In case you missed them here are the first two blog posts about the Urban Potty:
That brings us to our third video review. We had a couple unanswered questions at this point. The number 1 question being would my 8 year old Aussie mix, Linus use the Urban Potty. As we previously mentioned Linus is a bit of a potty snob and only really likes going on the grass. His first time camping he refused to potty on the dirt for over 24 hours. Needless to say we knew getting Linus to use the Urban Potty would be a bit of a challenge.
We answer the question of whether or not Linus would use the Urban Potty in our video review. Lets watch!
Urban Potty Video Review
Without further adieu…here’s our Urban Potty Video Review:
Our first look…unveiling the Urban Potty! You can see that it’s very large. Our Urban Potty was hand delivered so I can’t really comment on how quickly this item gets shipped. By the way, Urban Potty is currently offering free shipping!
There are only 4 pieces in the box. The potty turf, the collection system container, the potty funnel, and the tray.
Here’s the Urban Potty sleek tray. You can see light reflection off the trays many channels showing a high gloss which helps allow better drainage
As you can see putting the artificial turf on the tray is pretty simple. And heres the Urban Potty Collection System Container and Funnel. Many of the other competing products have an open tray that catches the urine. This collection system allows for much easier transportation for disposal. One thing we thought would have been nice is for the cap to be attached to the container. I foresee losing our cap in the future.
Setup was easy. Find a location for your Urban Potty tray. Lay the artificial grass on top. Place the collection system so the funnel is directly in the middle of the tray. It wasn’t difficult, to align the funnel, but I wonder if there’s a way to help a user guide the funnel into the right position. After all no one wants to mess up in the placement of the funnel…can you say possible stinky urine mess?
There’s a little bit of training involved with the Urban Potty. Stetson thought it made a good seat the first time he saw it setup.
Puppy Potty Training came easy for our first test subject…8 week old Toby. I just put him on his leash and guided him over to the Urban Potty. Then I stood around and made sure he stayed on top of the artificial grass. I gave him his command to potty…”get busy” and within 30 seconds he was using the Urban Potty for the first time.
After your puppy uses the Urban Potty it’s a good idea to take a water can or in my case coffee mug and rinse off the potty area to reduce the odor.
He didn’t do it here, but Toby did like biting and pulling the ends of the grass. Toby’s second time on the Urban Potty was even quicker. What a cute puppy looking up at me for approval…Good Boy!
Stetson my 6 year old Lab took to the Urban Potty pretty quickly too. His first try he looked a little uncomfortable, but as you can see after a few training sessions he was hopping up on the Urban Potty on his own without a leash.
Finally, we had been talking for weeks about trying to get Linus to use the Urban Potty. The final result: He never got comfortable enough to use this dog potty box which is not surprising since several years ago he wouldn’t even potty on dirt.
Linus is 8 years old and he was the first puppy I raised as an adult. Unfortunately, I inadvertently taught him to only potty on the grass. Since Linus I teach my dogs to potty on all surfaces. Lesson learned.
One thing that many people have asked is about the odor. We really didn’t notice the odor, but our Urban Potty is outdoor on our patio with good ventilation and we rinse after each use and deep clean every other week.
We did nitpick a few things about the Urban Potty, but overall we really liked it as a dog potty box and a great puppy potty training tool.
This is a sponsored product review. The opinions expressed are my own and are not influenced in any way.
Toby did great using the Urban Potty on dry land, but what about on a sailboat?
The Urban Potty On A Sail Boat
One more thing I wanted to address was a statement Pamela from Something Wagging This Way Comes brought to my attention. She’s planning on taking her Golden Retriever, Honey sailing and she was wondering if the Urban Potty would be a good fit for a sailing pup. Here are a few of my thoughts on that matter:
Training Honey: I think most dogs including Linus could learn to use the Urban Potty. I think there needs to be an intermediate step for finicky dogs like Linus. Maybe if I tried just laying the artificial grass on the ground and getting him to use that as a first step. Then try raising it half the height of the Urban Potty as step 2. Finally, step 3 use the Urban Potty.
Size of the Urban Potty: Honey is a Golden Retriever a relatively large breed. If she’s any bigger than Linus (55 lbs) or Stetson (70 lbs) she may be too big for the Urban Potty. At this time the product only comes in one size.
Sliding: I imagine the Urban Potty would start sliding around on a sail boat if it got rocky. If the containment system and tray got out of alignment then urine would end up directly on the deck. Pamela would have to find a way to keep the Urban Potty from sliding.
Those are three things I though about when considering Pamela’s situation sailing with her dog.
So what do you guys think? Do you need an Urban Potty? We’ve thought of many different uses for the Urban Potty. We will probably continue to use ours even when we move to a home with a big yard to try and keep our lawn nice and green
Urban Potty Reviews:
Our 3 part series reviewing the Urban Potty is now complete. Check out each blog post for our thorough review of this product:
Do you guys remember our trip to BlogPaws last June? The BlogPaws Pet Blogger Conference was awesome and we had the chance to not only give a presentation about building a business blog, but also got to meet tons of great pet bloggers, brands, and bring home piles of swag!
One person we got to meet pretty much on our way out the door was Dr. Jason Nicholas who blogs over at the Preventative Vet. Jason ran some great ideas by me about a pet safety book he was planning on publishing in the coming months.
Just the other day Jason contacted me to update me on his Pet Safety book project and his fundraising campaign over at Indiegogo.
Pet Safety Books For Dogs And Cats
Check out Jason’s video promoting his Pet Safety Book fundraising campaign
Here’s a link to his Indiegogo page. Here’s a little excerpt from the Indigogo page:
…I’m looking to expand my pet safety message beyond the internet and social media realms to the publishing world with two eye-opening, fun to read, and easy-to-digest pet safety tip books that I’ve just finished writing – one for cat owners, and one for dog owners – but I need your help to do so.
The books are already written and WILL BE PUBLISHED regardless of the outcome of this campaign, I’m just hoping to raise (at least) $15,000 to help cover the costs of producing them (you can see the breakdown of where the money will be going further down in the campaign description)….
We are definitely advocates of pet safety and even though we haven’t seen these books we do support Jason’s message and his cause. For more information visit Jason’s Pet Safety Book Idiegogo campaign page. Also, if you want to learn more about Dr. Jason Nicholas visit his blog at The Preventative Vet.
What do you guys think? Could you use a book on Pet safety?

…Back to our review!
Setting Up Your Urban Potty
We found setup very simple and initially didn’t even open the directions. If you’re like me then you’ll probably just bypass those directions and setup on your own. However, there were a few points you want to make sure and follow.
Make sure you remove the thin plastic film from the plastic funnel and tray.
When placing the container underneath the plastic tray make sure it is aligned properly over the center drain hole.
Use a watering can to lightly rinse on and around the area of potty on the turf with about a half cup of water after each use.
I’ve been deep cleaning my Urban Potty every few weeks by thoroughly rinsing all parts with a hose.
How To Use The Urban Potty
Yeah…sorry Apache, but the Urban Potty is not a dog bed! Don’t worry this is a brand new, unused Urban Potty. We let it sit in the house for the first week or so to let the pups get used to looking at and smelling it. Apache immediately thought the Urban Potty made a great doggy bed, grabbed his Rhino bone, and made himself comfortable.
Apache using the Urban Potty as a dog bed
Here are the steps we took to get our pups to use the Urban Potty:
When introducing our pups we made sure and used the Urban Potty for our pups first potty of the day that way we knew they really had to go.
For the first few uses we had our pups on leash so we could guide them to the Urban Potty.
After just a few trips our pups would go to the Urban Potty without their leash…that is all the pups except for Linus.
The Urban Potty was easy to setup and training the pups was a snap (*with the exception of Linus).
The Urban Potty Is Great As A Puppy Potty Training Tool!
I’m being totally honest here. While it was a little more difficult getting Stetson and Linus to use the Urban Potty all three puppies (an 8 week old, 7 month old, and 11 month old) I had over at the house used it almost without hesitation.
Toby working on his potty training with the Urban Potty
While I never really thought to much about using an Urban Potty or similar product in the past I can now see many benefits in using it as a puppy potty training tool. As a guide dog puppy raiser I have young pups over at the house more often then most people. We are very careful with our young puppies and don’t take them around the common areas in our neighborhood until they are fully vaccinated. Young puppies can be very susceptible to many parasites and diseases which can sometimes be fatal.
So why did we see so much potential in the Urban Potty as a puppy potty training tool? There are many reasons starting with:
It’s great for us because we live in a condo with a small patio. When our pups are young this is the only place they can potty. We have a little rock bed area and the cement for our pups to do their business. The Urban Potty means no mess on the cement area to clean up.
All the pups we worked with quickly learned that the Urban Potty was their new potty spot.
We teach our pups to go on all different surfaces. Artificial grass is different then real grass and gives us one more surface to train our pups to “get busy” on.
There were almost no distractions and our pups pretty much hopped up, did their business, then hopped down. Quick and easy!
Most importantly it gave our pups parasite and disease free spot to go potty.
Keeping your puppy free of sickness and disease is a priority not only for a guide dog puppy raiser like myself, but for all puppy owners!
The Pros And Cons of The Urban Potty
We really liked the Urban Potty, but in our experience no product is perfect and that’s also true of the Urban Potty. Here’s our list of some of the things we liked and didn’t like about the Urban Potty.
I’ve mentioned it over and over, but it’s so important to keep your young pups away from the parasites and disease in the common public areas around your home. The Urban Potty gives your pups a safe clean place to do their business.
I liked the collection system which makes it easy to carry and dispose of your pooches pee. Some of the similar products I’ve seen, but not tested have a tray which looks very difficult to carry especially if you’re walking through the house. The Urban Potty has a container with a cap that you can screw on and off to seal for transportation.
This thing is sturdy! Some of the dog potty boxes I’ve seen in the store are very cheaply made. I heard a 180 pound person could stand on the Urban Potty. While I didn’t test our sample product with a 180 pound man it had no problem supporting Apache, a 90 pound Golden Retriever.
Perfect for apartments with small patios or balconies. Especially if you’re not on the first floor. While I don’t have this problem I could see it being a real hassle to try and get your puppy down stairs or down an elevator to get to a potty spot. I bet many an accident happened on the way down.
How’s the weather? If you have extreme weather conditions (scorching hot or freezing cold) then the Urban Potty means you don’t have far to go and your pup will not be distracted and get his business done much quicker.
Midnight potty breaks – getting your dog to potty in the middle of the night or early in the morning is quick and easy with the Urban Potty.
Stetson was a little uncomfortable on the Urban Potty because it was too small. I think over time he’ll be fine, but any larger than Stetson who’s a 70 pound Labrador Retriever and I think you’d need a larger dog potty box. I’d like to see different sizes of the Urban Potty. The approximate weight of the dogs we tested were:
Toby – 15 pounds
Journey – 45 pounds
Cici – 50 pounds
Linus – 55 pounds
Stetson – 70 pounds
I like the collection system, but I’d also be interested to see an optional drainage tube. My patio has a drain pretty close to where I setup the Urban Potty. I’d love to just run a tube straight into the drain.
Toby liked picking up the ends of the grass, scratching and chewing this area. I keep him on leash and can control this behavior. However, I would not leave unattended puppies with the Urban Potty as I could easily see them chewing up the ends of the artificial grass. Another friend of mine had a similar product and had the same issue with the artificial grass. I’m not too sure what the solution would be, but this seems to be a problem only with the really young pups.
An easy way to tell when the collection system is full. We actually over-filled the collection system twice in the past month. I’m sure I can get better at figuring it out, but I’d love to see an indicator that showed me when it’s time to empty the container.
I think most of these Cons are nitpicking. Perhaps we’ll see some of these changes in an Urban Potty version 2.0.
Stetson using the Urban Potty
Take a good look at the three different pictures in this post and remember the Urban Potty is 36 wide X 32 depth X 4.5 height.
Apache is a 90 pound Golden Retriever - You can see curled up he fits perfectly on the Urban Potty. He never had the chance to try the Urban Potty, but I have a feeling he may have had some difficulty because he is such a large dog.
Toby is a 15 pound Labrador Retriever Puppy – You can see in the second picture that the Urban Potty is more than large enough for Toby. In fact I would say it’s the perfect size if not too big for a puppy like Toby.
Stetson is a 70 pound Labrador Retriever – You can’t really tell in this picture, but if you walked Stetson on a regular basis then you would probably notice that he had to scrunch his body a little bit to fit on the Urban Potty. While you could probably train dogs larger than Stetson to use the Urban Potty I probably wouldn’t recommend it unless you know your dog can potty on a dog potty box with the above dimensions.
Answering My 7 Questions/Concerns About The Urban Potty
At the end of my first Urban Potty review blog post I listed 7 questions/concerns I had regarding the product and I was hoping all of these questions would be answered once my dogs started using their new potty box. Here are the 7 questions:
I know it will produce some odor, but how much will the Urban Potty smell? - After using the Urban Potty for an extended period of time I found out that it does create a smell, but nothing that was really that noticeable. Of course my potty was setup on my patio where there is lots of free flowing air. Also, I made sure and rinsed with about a 1/2 cup of water each time one of my pups went potty. And finally, I did a deep cleaning about every 2-3 weeks. Overall, the odor from the Urban Potty was not too bad and very tolerable in my situation.
Will my pups use the Urban Potty? - So far Stetson, Toby, Journey, and Cici have all used the Urban Potty. Up to this point the only dog that has not used the Urban Potty is Linus which is not surprising. As a guide dog puppy raiser we teach our pups to potty on all different surfaces. Unfortunately for Linus I taught him to potty only on grass (Linus was before I raised guide pups). He was so adamant about going on the grass that he wouldn’t even potty on the dirt when we were camping. So it doesn’t really surprise me that we’re having some difficulty getting him to go on the Urban Potty. We are still working on it…
Can it withstand the weight of my pups (55-90lbs)? - Yes! I’m not sure what it’s tested for (we here a 180 pound person), but you can see in the picture above that it can easily hold up Apache, a 90 pound Golden Retriever.
How often should I clean the Urban Potty? – It’s recommended that you deep clean the Urban Potty every 2-4 weeks. I would increase or decrease that number depending on how often you use the potty box and how bad the odor gets. Also, make sure and rinse after every use with a water can and half cup of water. As I mentioned I deep cleaned it about every 2-3 weeks.
How often do I need to empty collection system container? - I’m not quite an expert on this one yet and I have overflowed the collection container twice. If you have bigger dogs like mine this thing fills up pretty fast. Especially when you have a puppy who potties about 10 times a day and two older dogs who seem to have ginormous bladders. When I had Toby and Stetson using it I was probably emptying it about every other day.
How easy is the setup and maintenance? - Setup and maintenance are very easy and explained in the instructions. However, as I said you really don’t need the instructions for setup and maintenance (so far) has consisted of rinsing after each use, emptying the collection container every other day, and deep cleaning about every 2-3 weeks.
Apache is a pretty big boy. Will the Urban Potty be large enough for my pups? - Unfortunately Apache did not get a chance to use the Urban Potty, but all of my other dogs did and it was just large enough for Stetson who is a 70 pound Labrador Retriever. After seeing Stetson use the Urban Potty I believe Apache (a long 90 pound Golden Retriever) would have had difficulty using the Urban Potty because of his size.
Sorry for this lengthy tome about the Urban Potty, but I wanted to get all of my thoughts down over the past month. Just in case you were wondering and didn’t see last months review post the Urban Potty Starter Kit is currently selling for $219.00 which is 24% of the regular price. The price also includes free shipping.
We have one more review post in the pipeline. You might be wondering: “what else does this guy have to say?”. At least two things still linger…We’ve been shooting video so you can see exactly how our puppies use the Urban Potty in stunning video And finally, the question remains…Can we get an older dog like Linus who at one point would not even potty on dirt to use the Urban Potty? Stay tuned for our final Urban Potty Review!
If you live in an apartment or high rise, raise or foster puppies, or live in extreme weather conditions how do you think an Urban Potty could benefit you? If you have any questions about the Urban Potty please leave us a comment in the comment section below.
