Taking your dog out to go to the bathroom during the winter can be a total nightmare. If you live in an apartment or condo, the shared area might be covered in harsh salt to prevent ice and snow from sticking to the ground. The salt is often terrible for your four-legged friend’s paws. The snow is another obstacle that can get in the way, as some dogs absolutely despise the snow.
If you have a dog that refuses to walk in the snow, you already know that accidents happen inside during the winter. If you’ve had this issue happen with either your puppy, adult dog, or senior pet, you know the deal. There is actually a company that sells tiny plots of real grass that are meant for indoor use. DoggieLawn has a monthly subscription that allows your dog to go to the bathroom inside and not on your nice hardwood floors. DoggieLawn is:
Finally, a subscription service for busy dog owners who want nothing but the best for their pet. For one low price, your dog gets a never-ending supply of fresh dog potty grass, and you get the satisfaction of knowing your dog can “go” when they want – day or night, rain or shine.
Because DoggieLawn uses real grass, there are no drawbacks like there are with other products meant for indoor bathroom use. Fake grass can be hard to train a dog to use because of the unnatural smell. The same goes for “wee wee” pads, which also are made with plastic, meaning that they are not eco-friendly at all, and they also require more changing.
If you’re interested in picking a plan for your pet, there are a few options to choose from. The patches of grass come in four sizes: Stanard (24″x16″) which is best for toy breeds and dogs under 15 pounds, Medium (24″x20″) which is best for dog breeds between 10 to 30 pounds, Large (24″x24″), which is best for dogs between 20 to 50 pounds, and there is XL (24″x48″), which is ideal for dogs 40+ pounds or for homes with multiple dogs. The XL size is actually DoggieLawn’s best selling size.
The costs for each size start at, $26 for the Standard plot, $29 for the Medium plot, $31 for the Large plot, and $34 for the XL plot. Each cost is per delivery and you can choose how often you want a delivery. You can start with every week, every two weeks, every three weeks, or every four weeks. You can change your delivery options to more or less frequent, depending on how often your dog uses the grass.
