Porch Bathroom

    So I had been doing some research into buying our new pup a porch potty thing so that he could get used to at least going to the bathroom outside before he has all of his shots.. I was shocked to see how much money they were!! So I thought to myself why not just build something myself? I've attached a photo of the finished product (2'W by 4'L) and I used real grass so I hope the transition for the puppy will be easy once he is allowed to go outside with the rest of the dogs. Total cost to build this thing was under $20!!!!

  • Nice what did you use for the bottom? Is that a piece of wood? I've been looking for a plastic tray so that it could catch the urine that goes through the grass/soil.

    The bottom is a plastic wrapped piece of wood yes.. I'm only planning on using this for a month or so so I'm not to worried about the urine seeping through

    Very neat set up. =)

    Definitely lot cheaper than buying one..

    If I ever live in an apartment and get a puppy I'll keep this thread in mind. lol
