Default Potty Areas

Just curious to see everyone's potty areas, especially those with multiple Chi's.

This is out current set up, although we will be changing it. We have a second one of the trays with the walls but it's at my inlaws. Next time we go visit I will be bringing it home. I plan to set both up and have them facing each other so that there is just a little doorway in the middle on each side.

Anyway, this set up is working well for us. We used to just use the 1 tray with the walls, but after adding a 3rd pup, we definitely needed an extra tray.

I don't have pictures of Toby's area, but I can describe it. It is tucked in a corner between a bookcase and my sofa. I put a plastic shower curtain down and taped it to the carpet (he REFUSED to step foot in a tray). On top of it are two pads side by side. The liner is a bit longer to account for him "missing". That's it. Pretty simple. Nothing fancy.

Hi!! We have our potty pad area on the third floor, same floor as our bedrooms. It's down the hallway in front of the guest bedroom and workout room. Usually there are 4 pads, sometimes 3 depending on how lazy I am, lol. Underneath the pads is this sticky, clear carpet protector that goes up the wall a few inches in case Leo lifts his leg. Also if the pee runs off the pad an accident, the clear protector wipes up so easily.

Thanks for the replies so far!

I would love to switch my pups over to one of the (faux) grass potty pads, especially since we go through at least 3 pads a day, but unfortunately my partner hates the idea of them (?). We'll be moving in July to a place with a fenced in yard so I'm sure the pups wont be using the pads AS much, but we'll definitely always have them available.

Thanks for the pics Zorana! great little setup! Where they're on the third floor, do you have to watch Mimi even more, or does she follow the other pups up there?

My fiancé's mom had the potty patch for her chi and at first it was great, but then it got really smelly and it would not go away!! Lol. She tried bleaching it with no luck.

We go through about 3-4 pads a day too. Do u live in the US? Believe it or not, Mimi is 100% pad trained from about 13 weeks! She always goes on the paper! She climbs the stairs with no problem but she can't go down yet, legs are too short! Sometimes if we are hanging out on the 1st or 2nd floors for a while, I'll put a pad out and she uses it. She is more pad trained than area trained so if she sees a pad, she uses it!!

I won't bore you with our set up. We just have a lone pee pad next to the cat's litter box in our laundry room, which has linoleum flooring. Super easy to clean up.

We have used a potty patch before. We bought it for a boat trip because we can't always get to shore with Ode. It was great out on the ocean because we could just dunk the grass part in the water and let it dry in the sun. In a house? Not so much. We tried it for awhile on one of our balconies and even if you wash it often, it will smell
disgusting after not very long at all. It wouldn't be bad if you were willing to buy new grass very often but that would add up pretty quickly.

Reading this thread, I know why it would be a nightmare to get Simcha to use a potty pad. He is a prolific leg lifter, and when I walk him I must be careful that he does not pee on my foot when he lifts his 'inside' leg. He has come extremely close on many occasions.
Well, maybe Zorana's multiple pad approach might work, but I would not count on it. Perhaps an additional pad taped up against the wall.
