Teaching an Older Dog New Tricks

Thursday, January 2nd, 2014

There are many reasons why you would want to potty train an older dog to use an indoor dog potty system.
1) As dogs get older many have more difficulty walking
2) The weather outside may be intolerable for your older dog.
3) Requiring more frequent relief and you may not be able to provide that for him (due to your own schedule with work, family, etc.)

Whatever the reason, an indoor dog potty system may be the solution for you and your beloved older dog. You’ll need patience and persistence for this project.
Be extremely consistent with your schedule and keep the UGODOG potty system clean for him. Also, keep the potty system at the same spot, don’t move it around your home or place next to food or water source.
If your older dog is accustomed to going outdoors with a leash, you may want to use the leash indoors to let him know that it’s time to “go potty”. The idea is to keep as many of the old habits as possible to help him learn the new ones.
Make sure to reward your dog when he does something right. Positive reinforcement has and is an excellent tool that you can use to train your older dog.

Why Should You Train Your Dog To Use An Indoor Dog Potty?

Wednesday, December 18th, 2013

If you own a dog (or are considering getting one) you know that you will be housebreaking and potty training your newest member of the family. For some, there may be some issues with the task of taking your dog out to “do his business”.

1) Some dogs require more frequent urination and the task of taking your dog out 4 or 6 times a day may end up being either impossible or extremely cumbersome.
2) You may have certain physical limitations that make it extremely difficult (or impossible) to get outside with your dog. You shouldn’t be denied having a dog just because of this.
3) Perhaps your work schedule makes it difficult to take your dog out as often as you should. Again, you shouldn’t be denied having a dog just because of this.

If you can’t provide your beloved dog with a sitter to take him out during the day or night, then you may want to consider training your dog to use an indoor dog potty system like UGODOG. Training your dog to use an indoor potty may take some patience (depending on the age of your dog) but at the end, both you and your dog will find the solution very useful for your problem.

If you start researching indoor dog potty you’ll notice there are a variety of different types and we urge you to do your research to find the system that will work best for you and your dog. Basically, the majority of indoor dog potty systems fall into 2 categories…
a) A fake grass product.
b) A grate product.
The can tell you that the UGODOG is a grate product that are specially designed for the comfort and safety of your dog’s paws. The grate system keeps your dogs paws dry because the urine drips through the grates into the base. This prevents him from tracking that liquid through the house

APA Approved Indoor Potty That’s Better Than Fake Grass

Monday, September 30th, 2013

There are many different types of dog potty systems available for dogs and their owners to help them . There are artificial grass dog potty systems, pee pads and plastic grate systems. So, it’s no wonder that dog owners are confused as to which type and which product within that type is the best dog potty system for their dog.
UGODOG APA Approved Let’s see if we can help you to find your perfect dog training system.
The ONLY Indoor Dog Potty System With American Pet Association’s Approval
There is ONLY ONE indoor dog potty product that is approved by the American Pet Association and has received a 5 Star rating from the APA. That is the UGODOG product. APA 5 Stars is the approval of a product based on APA Testing and research that insures a product is approved for real world intended usage and is considered safe, humane and as-advertised.
We are so very proud of our dog potty product and that’s certainly a sentiment many of our clients share.
My very tiny 1.8 pound, 9 week old havanese puppy uses the Ugodog with no problem. What a smart, simple idea. I don’t want to use piddle pads, which are expensive and environmentally ugly. Plain old newspaper is cheap, abundant, and works just fine. The Ugodog isn’t exactly the same dimensions as the newspaper, but seriously-how much effort does it take to fold it to fit ? No more worrying about wet or soiled unsanitary newspaper on the floor (yuck), nothing shredded to pieces. Cleans up with very little effort. Well worth paying what they ask for the convenience and ease of use, and it pays for itself in a short time with the money saved on piddle pads.”

What exactly does a 5 Star APA Rating Mean?
In order to receive this top rating from the APA, the product must meet the following requirements:
1) Humane Treatment of pets and people (product must be intended to be used, or will commonly be used in such a way that is humane to pets and the treatment of customers and employees must be positive and productive.)
2)Business Ethics (Business must pass a background check and not be involved in questionable or unethical business practices. The product claims and marketing must be factual and not misleading.)
3) Product Quality (Product must be manufactured in such a way and with quality materials so that it meets or exceeds expected lifetime)
4) Safety (The product should be safe for use as intended for both pets and humans.)
5) Ongoing Feedback (Ongoing feedback must be consistent and representative of the initial testing results for a product to remain approved. Approval status can be checked 24/7 at this site)
Our Indoor Dog Potty Goes Beyond The APA Approval
In additional to the coveted APA approval, there are other factors that make the UGODOG indoor dog potty system the best choice for you and your dog.
1) Bacteria Free – our indoor dog potty system has a unique plastic design that makes daily clean up easy and of course, keeps it bacteria free. Pee Pads may leak and artificial grass products are difficult to clean so bacteria can flourish.
2) Easy To Clean – the two grate system in the UGODOG dog potty system can be cleaned with a wet town or in a sink (how easy is that!). Compared to pee pads (which dogs can shred) and grass dog pottys (which require a hose and scrubbing to clean), there’s just no easier indoor dog potty system than the UGODOG product.
3) Cost Effective – because the UGODOG indoor dog potty is created with the highest quality materials it will last so you would most likely only purchase it once. With 2 sizes to choose from, the prices range from $49.95 to $99.95. You probably didn’t know that the average dog owner spends about $400.00 per year on pee pads and that the average cost for a grass indoor dog potty product is about $150.00. Compare these costs to the UGODOG indoor dog potty and it’s a no brainer!
4) Dry Paws – The unique convex shaped grates in the UGODOG dog potty product allows urine to pass through the grates and it then collects in the base so your dog’s paws remain dry. It’s easy to see that with pee pads and with the artificial grass potty systems, that simply is not the case. So, keep your dog from tracking urine throughout the house!

CHEAT SHEET – Training Your Dog to Potty Indoors

UGODOG dog training for dummies

UGODOG 5 easy steps

You may want to housetrain your puppy or adult dog to go to the bathroom in an indoor potty area. A dog potty or dog toilet can be some newspapers spread on the floor, a dog litter box (like UGODOGO), or some other device located in a designated area of your home. Here are some housetraining tips that make indoor housetraining a breeze:
• Do consider indoor training if you live in a high-rise apartment, can’t get around easily, and/or have a very small dog.
• Do consider your needs, your dog’s needs, and your home’s layout when deciding where to put the indoor potty.
• Do get a crate for your indoor trainee so that he learns to regulate his potty maneuvers.
• Do use scent and repetition to teach your dog that the indoor potty is the only surface upon which he should take a whiz or make a deposit.
• Do be patient if you move the potty from outdoors to indoors.
• Don’t let your puppy roam freely unless you can watch him.
• Don’t get angry at your puppy for making a mistake; get mad at yourself for giving him a chance to do so.
• Don’t take your indoor trainee outside for a walk or for playtime until after he’s done his business.
