Potty Park vs Ugodog

We are going on an extended trip in our travel trailer this summer, and I'm considering an indoor potty option that is lighter weight, easier to move, and less likely to spill than his litter box.

I'd love input from anyone who has had experience with both. Barring that, I'd love pros and cons of both from those who use them.

I haven't used any of them yet, but there's some chance I might be moving to a place where I'd need something. This Porch Potty has gotten some really good feedback. I'll be checking back here for feedback as well.

I love my piddle pad and holder. That is all I have used. Good topic!

Yeah, I don't think that would work for us... liquid loose in a moving travel trailer seems WAY worse than a few wood pellets rolling around on the floor!

I'm not sure if they have these in the US but while I was living in Japan, this setup was VERY popular.

I wish I could find a bigger picture but I can't. Anyway the idea is that the grid keeps your dog from being able to tear up the pee pad, holds it in place, and it can last longer since you're scooping the poop from the grid rather than the pad. My friends over there with dogs swear by this system.

Karen, I've used the ugodog since Santos came home, and I can't say enough good things about it.

That looks similar to the Ugodog.

Our Uno uses Rascal Litter Box. It comes with synthetic grass that can be thrown into a washer (we haven't tried it yet). You can place pee-pads/newspaper/whatever under the grass for easy clean up. We got the big size (10 - 30 lb dog size) for our puppy and he seems to like it.

Check it out:

I have both the Ugodog and use pee pads with a tray. (


) I actually prefer the tray. The ugodog works okay as well, but cleaning the plastic grids is messy, I cant imagine cleaning one of those fake grass ones. Lily only uses the trays for peeing but when she went #2 once I was surprised how gross it was to clean it out. ALso I felt it was very overpriced for the construction. It really is three pieces of injection molded plastic for $50.

These pee pads are great though. They are made by Nature's Miracle. They soak it up super quick and Lily never has wet feet.

A pee pad that isn't COMPLETELY protected from the dog won't work for Kodi... he'll just destroy it.
