DIY Dog Potty Grass

by Deborah Lundin

A toilet is not really an option, but indoor grass is.

Cat owners have a slight advantage over dog owners when it comes to potty time. Litter boxes allow a cat to go whenever she wants, without having to depend on her owner. Dogs, however, need more space and usually depend on a walk or a nice backyard. That doesn’t have to be the case. With a few simple steps, you can create an indoor grass patch just for your pooch.

Step 1

Place the metal tray or drip pan on a flat surface. For small dogs, a large cookie sheet with raised sides may be all you need. Measure the length and width of the inside of the pan.

Step 2

Cut a piece of the metal grating or solid chicken wire to your measurements using the wire cutters. Place the cut piece inside the metal tray. This will help keep the artificial grass off the pan surface and allow for urine drainage.

Step 3

Cut a piece of the artificial grass to your measurement using a box cutter or utility knife. Using a screwdriver, poke holes throughout the piece of grass to allow liquid to drain through. Place the cut piece of grass into the pan, on top of the wire grating.

Step 4

Place your artificial backyard where you would like your dog to go. Leave it in one spot so your dog knows where his new indoor yard is.
