The Plastic Tray is a great option if you are not going to use the functional cardboard box or wooden sleeve. The tray is designed to accommodate the Fresh Patch Large dog grass pee pad (24" x 24"). The grass is easily removed from the cardboard box and inserted in the plastic tray.
The tray is helpful if:
1. Your dog chews on the cardboard box
2. Your Fresh Patch is being used outdoors in rain or snow
3. Your dog needs a lower profile for entrance into the unit
I have a spot in my backyard for my Havanese puppy to go *****. During our winter season it rains and my puppy does not like his paws wet at all. So after doing some research found "Fresh Patch", and tried it out (setting it up in the garage). My puppy is a happy camper now! Even if it has not rained but outside has morning dew; he will run in the garage to use Fresh Patch. Thank you, I am so happy no accidents in the house!
We ended up just using the box for the patch of large grass we ordered for our hotel stay and the grass absorbed the *** really well. We use the extra large one at home and it works wonders. Have purchased from fresh patch now for years and will continue to.
