It's looking like I will be soon moving closer to the city with my male newfie. The house I am looking at has a very small backyard that is mainly paved, with tanbark and plants around the exterior. He has stayed here before and pees and poos on the tanbark, but I am concerned that, even though poos are picked up every day, it will start to smell and that over time, urinating on plants will kill them.
I am looking at 'The Pet Loo,' which are those grassed 'back yard in a box' which has synthetic grass over a drain that catches urine and is acidity resistant to supposively minimise smell.
I am interested to hear people's thoughts/ experiences. Namely, did their dogs use it, did their male dog continue to cock his leg elsewhere, did it begin to smell over time, and do you think it would be viable for a giant breed? (the largest holds 1.75 litres of liquid)
And, never fear, George is walked twice daily, has dog obedience training once weekly, and plenty of trips to my horse paddocks so (I hope) won't be too bored in his new surrounds!
