The Equine Pine Pellets is used for horse bedding. It's, also, used for other animals such as rabbits, chickens, etc. It's made of Pine. There are different names for it. A 40lb bag cost about $6 at a Tractor Supply store. I don't know where you live but you probably have a Hardware Store or Tractor Supply or Atwoods where you can buy it, unless you're in a big city urban area.

A man named Tom who raises Havanese puts these pellets in an open tray bucket and the puppies don't eat the pellets. When the puppies or dogs walk on the pellets they will track particles of it onto the floor. Tom has a different set up. The pellets are not inside the main part of his house, they're in a room set up specifically for breeding puppies and letting dogs play. That's why you need to use a Grate on top of a potty tray. My dog has never been interested in investigating the pellets, and she's a VERY!! curious dog who puts everything in her mouth. The little stinker.

You can crate at night without the potty if thatís the setup you have for night and use the expen during the day. The first few weeks you may or may not have to wake up early to take the puppy out.

I agree the ugodog is bigger but of the trays I have I like it best because itís the lowest and less visually obstructive. But that might be partly because it blends in with my floor. Even when I have the taller boxes that are more like litter boxes tucked out of the way I seem to find ways to trip over them. The others seemed more noticeable to me and the tray we used most was in the mudroom next to the guest bathroom. I tend to rush and not look where Iím going and I trip a lot though, lol.

I bought my equine pellets at Tractor Supply and once at a place that caters towards urban farming. I only bought two bags in an entire year and i only had to buy a second bag early because a lot of it spilled out and was ruined by melted snow in the garage. I usually scooped it out once a week or so, but sometimes it was faster to just empty and refill the whole tray, which is wasteful but still doesnít use a lot of pellets. They last a long time. I store(d) mine in ikea stacking bins in the garage and also used a small ice bucket to keep a small amount near the tray.

The Richell and Bylss trays are as low or lower than UgoDog, if height is an issue.

your hav wants to follow you around and be near you, that what the hav does.
I'd put a little ex-pen in the room to keep him in, and make sure you take him out for potty regularly.

I always had this one set up in my living room, you can see it is made of wood and kind of small with a little door in case a service person was in the home. Sometimes Henry would go in there just to rest and relax. I wouldn't use an indoor electric fence device.

If you don't want him on the furniture, you could train him to it in his own furniture like a dog bed, or an ex-pen like I described. & don't forget he'll want to be close by to cuddle.

This is my experience. I don't have to gate him out of areas unless I really can't pay attention, but even then, he follows me everywhere!

the velcro dog will not rest until he follows you into the bathroom, just in case you "need" him
