I recently moved to a house with no backyard- only a deck. My dog had previously used piddle pads when needed, but had a doggy door to the backyard (before I moved).
When I moved here, I couldn’t get him into the habit of using pads exclusively, and was having poop accidents on the carpet. Then I found an ad for an new XL Fresh Patch kit on a local swap site - their doc had passed before it was used.
I put it out on my back deck, and Oliver is in heaven!! There is grass for him to spin his weird circles, and poop his poops. The xl works well, though he’s a medium dog , because of how he circles to potty.
I’ve bought one replacement pad since starting here, and it’s worked out well! No training was necessary at all.
I don’t know if I can keep it up, because I’m on SDI income, but I sure hope I can figure out a way!!!! 5⭐️ from me & Oliver, too.
