My dog didn't use it. It was trying to train my dog to go in the box, but after a week of trying, we gave up. I was excited about the product because I didn't want to take my dog out during the rain. But unfortunately, she preferred to go outside in the cold and rain versus using the box.
Overall, I think the concept is great. I purchased it in time for the arrival of my maltipoo puppy that I've now had for 2.5 weeks! She was 1.9 lbs when I got her and she's now 2.8lbs. She quickly adapted to pooping in fresh patch 95% of the time, but she doesn't usually pee in it! She also enjoys chewing the cardboaed edges of the Fresh patch! I may be investing in the sleeve soon to see if that will help with chewing. Initially I had her gated off in my kitchen. - bed in one area, food and water in another area, and fresh patch in another area. As of last night, I have begun to crate her at night and I caught her peeing in it, so hopefully that will help as well. I also have a repeat order of every 3 weeks which seems to be great timing with shipping.
It took some time for my dog to take to the Fresh Patch but after some pacients and persistence. I believe he is getting used to it, although sometimes he would prefer to go outside.
Puppy not interested in using yet, but I think he will acclimate to it with time.
The product was really a great buy, unfortunately our puppy will not use it. I would definitely recommend this product at least give it a try.If your pet would actually use it it will help them or yourself from freezing outside.
