Now that winter is upon us and it’s getting harder and harder for Stanley to get around, I was thrilled to be asked to review the Bark Potty Dog Park in a Box. Basically the Bark Potty is an indoor potty for dogs who need to relieve themselves indoors.
I’ll have to admit, I was a little nervous about using the Bark Potty. I was worried it would encourage going inside instead of going outside. It took nearly three years to get Stanley trained to go outside and I didn’t really want to undo that. The thing is, Stanley is older now and requires a doggie diaper at night. I wouldn’t use this in place of the diaper, because I’m not sure Stanley has any control over the accidents he has at night, but it’s a handy thing to have around when I’m not able to get back to the house to let them out.
Bark Potty Dog Park in a Box
The Bark Potty is an all natural pet potty. It’s made with tree bark which is so much better than those other indoor potties made of fake grass, or the ones that need to be emptied. The bark absorbs the urine and the solids can be picked up with the handy bags that are included.
The Bark Potty is pretty big, and can be made even bigger by connecting multiple boxes for big dogs or dogs who might not have proper aim.
Stanley has crappy aim, that was another thing that worried me, but so far it all seems good.
The Bark Potty is pleasant smelling in that it really doesn’t have a smell to it. The animals were all attracted to it, however.
Each box is supposed to last 2 – 4 weeks depending on how many dogs, and how much they go inside. I’m still taking the dogs out, so the Bark Potty is more of an emergency thing so it’s lasting just fine. Since it lined there’s no leaking and I haven’t noticed any urine smell yet. So far no one has used it for #2 except for the cat, which is not something I am encouraging.
We’ve got plowable snow coming and I’m working out of the house for the next four days, I’m sure this will be a lifesaver.
