I looked into using fresh grass for indoor training. Mostly I thought it would be sort of cute compared to an indoor potty tray/litter box since mine is near my guest bathroom. I can find ways to justify the cost of a lot of things when they make my life easier, especially when it comes to delivery, but the markup on a piece of sod that I could purchase for a couple of dollars locally was pretty high. It’s money i’d rather spend on toys and treats. Especially because wood pellets are so inexpensive and have to be changed so infrequently. I did consider buying sod at a nursery and replacing it on my own schedule but in the end I read about the wood pellets here on the forum and it worked out for us. The potty tray I bought is low profile and the color sort of blends in with the floor so it isn’t the eyesore I worried it would be. Grass is definitely an option, and under the right circumstances I’d probably do it (like on a balcony where the rain might cause problems with wood pellets) but it would have to make my life a lot easier for me to justify the cost (meaning for $30/week it better be delivered right to my door, not a centralized apartment mailbox).
The threads on the forum about indoor potty training are so helpful! Regardless of what you use for your indoor potty, l think it’s the containment and supervision, and the continued practice of indoor potty once outdoor training is mastered, that really make it work.
