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 Standard dog grass pee pad (24" x 16"). 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
Fresh patch has been a HUGE help in ***** training my new puppy. From 8 weeks old he immediately gravitated towards the grass patch and had very few accidents in the house. Also a big help considering we live in an apartment complex. We transitioned the patch out to the balcony for late night/rainy weather ***** breaks.
I was hopeful reading all other reviews that my puppy would do well with fresh patch, so glad I tried it. Definitely worth it and would recommend!
I wanted a puppy but didn't want to be committed to middle of the night or snowy dog walks. I found FreshPatch and installed a doggie door on my slider to my condo patio. 4 years later I have never been woken up in the middle of the night or had to get suited up to go for walks in the snow.
