Ultimately, I stopped using the UGODOG because of that. After months of returning to newspaper I decided to give another pet potty a chance (this one), but I knew I needed something bigger. This is one of the few potties out there that cater to bigger dogs. I mean really cater to them. After doing a mock measurement of their largest potty (30x40) I decided to get it because I was absolutely confident my dog would use it.
On the first day my dog used it with no trouble at all. I put the potty in "his spot" where he normally uses it, put a few sheets of newspaper on top just so he would get the point and no problem. He used it with no second guessing. After that, I no longer used the newspaper because he would be familiar with his scent after that and where he went.
I purchased 2 absorbent pads for it. At first, I thought they looked awfully thin and flimsy and wouldn't do the trick. But boy was I wrong. Those things worked wonders. I think I let him pee on that thing (potty) for 5 days in a row before it started smelling. Lazy I know. I'll be cleaning it about every 2 days from now on but had been so busy I didn't get to it until I had no choice but to.
I should also mention that I take my dog out for a morning walks so he usually only uses it in th evenings.Read more ›
That being said you must introduce the potty properly to your puppy or dog. We put it over the spot outside that our puppy used and then after a few weeks of him using it outside we transitioned the potty to inside the home.
Our puppy was not enthusiastic about using it at first because the artificial turf is not as soft as natural sod and may have a soft prickly feel that the dog will need to get used to.
Here are some tips that helped us.
*Keep your puppy on leash until they routinely begin to use the potty, this way you can limit the distance they can travel away from the dog potty to do their potty.
* Before making them go potty for the first time on the dog potty, get them used to walking on the new surface by luring them closer and closer to the potty with treats and then lure them on to the dog potty surface with even more treats.
* Immediately after they finish going potty on the dog potty surface give them another treat and lots of praise. They will eventually get the point and understand that they need to use the dog potty and doing so means good things (treats) even if they don't like the feel of the surface.
* Keep it clean! Rinse out the tray and artificial turf with soap and water about every second or third day. Just like cats with a litter box, dogs won't want to use a dog potty that is dirty.
A little hefty of a price tag, but worth it in our eyes.
It took a bit for the dogs to be interested in it, upon getting the item i put treats on and around the potty and rewarded them for walking on it. The first night they did not seem interested in it, so during their next morning walk i took the grass mat and tried to get them to use it outside. No go, but i figured if i rubbed it around in the actual grass (especially where other dogs peed...a bit gross, i know) they would associate the scent with actually going outside. I also brought a bit of real grass inside to place on the potty.
I came home from work that night to lift up the mat and see that one of them did in fact use it while i was gone! Subsequent days have produced the same results and no puddles on the floor at all! Of course they get their regular walks but it alleviates the feelings of guilt when you have to be gone all day at work and there's no one to let the pets out. I would think that a puppy pad under the grass would allow for easier clean up, i haven't really had a problem without it though. I am very happy with this item!

I am at a loss as to who would give this product a good review. It is poorly constructed and serves more as a chew toy then a puppy potty. Read morePublished 13 months ago by Amazon Customer
This product is amazing!! My miniature poodle uses it in the middle of the night when she wakes me up to go out. I used to have to put her on leash and walk her outside. Read morePublished 15 months ago by Sandra K. Gill

This product does not live up to the advance publicity. My dog avoids it if possible and when placed directly on it walks away as soon as he can.Published on February 17, 2013 by Harold C. Morgan
