Doggie Lawn’s specialty formulated, hydroponically grown grass is designed to work perfectly as an indoor dog potty, or outside on your balcony as a fresh potty patch. Their dog grass weighs slightly more than one half as much as standard sod for easy lifting and is soil-less, which means it contains virtually none of the dirt you find in sod sold in home improvement stores.
The product is ideal for dogs who weigh less than 18 pounds. It includes a piece of grass and a reusable tray. In addition, to being available for dogs, the Doggie Lawn can be used with cats, rabbits, turtles, and hedgehogs.
Giveaways 4 Mom Review
I had a similar product from Petco in the past. However, it was artificial grass and only included a very thin mat to go under it. Benji used this when I first brought him home and it lasted for about a month.
Benji, for the most part is potty trained now, however, he does still have occasional accidents. Therefore, when I heard about the Doggie Lawn I thought it would be a good solution to the overnight accidents. In addition, since he understood how the Petco lawn worked I figured this would be even better since it contained real grass.
I Was Wrong
Apparently, I was wrong. This product did not last 24 hours in my house. The first thing Benji thought, was the product was for him to sit on. I looked over the tips in the guide and coached Benji away from the lawn so he could remember what it was for. The next thing I knew Benji was digging in the pad as though he was outside.
After this incident, it was enough. The dirt and grass was all over the floor and it was a noticeable patch missing from the lawn. I decided that this was just not going to be the option that I was looking for because if I left him with the lawn overnight it would be destroyed.
Benji does well in the daytime when it comes to going to the potty outside. However, sometimes at night he has accidents. I do not want to put him in a crate at night and I was hoping that the Doggie Lawn would be the solution.
Overall, based on my experience I would not recommend the Doggie Lawn to others. This subscription service is priced at $28 a month; however, I could not see myself spending it to have a product that cannot make it 24 hours. I do understand that it is a new concept for Benji but he had something similar in the past and it lasted longer than this product. In addition, the black tray that the lawn goes on is very flimsy.
NOTE: I did see two positive reviews of this product and you can check them out for yourself here and here.
