Tips & Tricks
Figure out a location where your dog will be relaxed using Gotta Go Grass. Set the tray and grass in place and encourage her to try it out by placing her regularly used leash directly on the grass. Watch how she behaves. If she’s reluctant, sit down yourself and invite her to join. Encourage behaviors like smelling and pawing at the grass. Make Gotta Go Grass feel like a walk outside. Your comfort level builds hers. Patience, praise, and reinforcement lead to success.
Always reward your doggie immediately. Provide treats and praise when she attempts usage even when the result is a clear miss.
Remember that our doggies are creatures of habit so avoid relocating Gotta Go Grass. Select a location where he will be relaxed and comfortable. Set him up on a regular schedule as would be done with walks: morning, noon, evening or if a puppy every 4 hours depending on his size.
Sometimes the need for potty breaks can sneak up on a dog…especially puppies. Keep an eye out for signs your doggo needs to go now: he comes to a sudden stop, he begins circling, he begins sniffing intensely, he butt is being kept on the ground and possibly dragged a bit. When you observe these signs immediately get him to Gotto Go Grass. Reward that use right afterward.
If time to go usually means a walk on a leash, put on the leash and go to Gotta Go Grass and wait as you normally would while she sniffs and pokes around. Use the same language doggie is used to hearing on walks. Remember that you should still take your special girl out for walks too because they’re fun bonding moments for both of you.
We recommend removing any previous potty training products to keep things clear to your dog.
Yes, you can place a used piddle pad place it under the grass so when he smells the grass it is familiar. Or go the other way and have a neighbor’s dog piddle on a paper towel and place that under the grass to encourage your dog to mark his territory. Commercially available pheromone sprays are also a route for establishing comfort.
