Looking for an indoor potty for dogs?
Millions of dog owners are trying to find a simple, clean and low cost solution for their pets. With the way work schedules are these days, dog owners can't always make it home to give their best friend a potty break.
Two favorites with dog owners are the Wizdog and the Ugodog dog potty. Both are priced under $50 which is a great value and they are super easy to clean.
Dogs take to them pretty quickly and the best feature is the grate that is used on both models. You can put a pee pad or newspaper UNDER the grate and out of reach. So no shredded papers or mess……..nice!
It's always best to take your puppy to the UgoDog in the morning when your puppy first gets up and then after each meal. If you see them sniffing around in the house that is usually a sign they have to go too.
A puppy's muscle control is not complete until they are about 12 weeks old so it's up to you to make sure they use it often. One tip is to leave a small towel that has their urine on it in the UGODOG tray or put a small amount of your dog's urine in the tray and put the grates over it.
You can put the pee pads (if you had been using them) the first few times until your puppy gets used to the UGODOG. Always praise your puppy when they have done a good job. Remember, be patient and know that by being consistent with them they will eventually figure it out.
Here are a few tips if your dog appears hesitant at first to use the UgoDog
Starting your dog off with a leash will give you a little more control and help to gently lead them to the UgoDog. Get them use to walking on the new surface first by luring them closer and closer with treats and once they are on it give them another treat.
Once they go potty in the UgoDog for the first time, be sure and praise them and and give them a treat. Be consistent with them, use the same "potty words" each time, and praise, praise, praise them! Don't forget the treat:-) Keep the UgoDog clean…………….this definitely helps a lot!
