We recently added our first dog to our growing family! He’s a little four pound Chihuahua so he doesn’t take up a whole lot of room, which is good because we have a very small backyard! It is so small in fact, that we cemented the whole thing! We didn’t think it was that big of a deal, until we got a dog!
When we got Odie, potty training presented to be a real problem! Where does a dog go if not in the grass? Sadly he made our welcome mat his potty mat! When I saw this Doggie Lawn, I had to have it! It’s the perfect solution!
I didn’t realize until it arrived that it was actually live grass! I thought it was fake grass at first but that wouldn’t be much better than the welcome mat in the long run! It came nicely packaged in plastic and they were considerate enough to even include a pair of gloves so I could set it up without getting dirty.
As soon as I set it up, Odie went straight for it to explore.He didn’t immediately go to the bathroom there since he wasn’t used to it. I dragged over his nasty old mat that he was going on and put it on top of the grass. The next few days he went on the mat on the grass. Once he was used to it, I got rid of the mat and now he just goes on the grass! It’s so nice to have it contained and not on a mat we step on as soon as we walk out the door!
I have been watering the grass periodically and it’s in an area that gets sunlight but not too much. I’ve noticed the past week it’s starting to die. Doggie Lawn has a couple different options for maintaining this system. You can have a new one sent to you every other week, or just once a month. I did notice it starting to die after about two weeks. However, it’s in my backyard for my dog to go to the bathroom on so I don’t care too much about it’s appearance! However, if you’re a stickler for perfection, it’s nice to have the option to have it replaced frequently.
I think the service itself is a little pricey. It’s $39 if you want to get once a month or $60 for twice a month. It seems a lot to pay for grass but I also like the convenience. They deliver it and you can have it set up automatically. I guess it just depends what it’s worth to you!
This is the perfect solution for those that live in apartments that have a dog or people like me with no grass. I’m happy to have a nice place for Odie to take care of his business that doesn’t get in the way!
Our specially formulated, hydroponically grown grass is designed to work perfectly as an indoor dog potty, or outside on your balcony as a fresh potty patch. Our dog grass weighs slightly more than one half as much as standard sod for easy lifting and is “soil-less” which means it contains none of the dirt you find in sod sold in home improvement stores. Try it out and see for yourself how much you and your dog will love having their own convenient fresh patch of grass for bathroom breaks!
This product is ideal for dogs over 16lbs!
