How do I clean the Small Porch Potty?
Cleaning the Small Porch Potty is easy! Simply remove solids and manually water the grass with a watering can or hose for 1 minute. This allows the water to soak up the entire surface and clean every blade of grass. The water will then flow through the perforated backing in the synthetic grass and down the 14-foot drain hose or into the catch basin (sold separately). Do this every few days for a clean and odour-free Porch Potty.
To clean the plastic tray, wipe it down or let it soak in water and vinegar or water and a bit of bleach. Empty and rinse with water. Now you can place the grass back on. You should also lift the base of the Porch Potty to clean any areas where your dog may have missed or dripped down the side.
Will the Porch Potty smell?
No, your Porch Potty will not smell with regular cleaning! All it takes is rinsing with clean water a few times per week. The self-draining system will do the work for you and direct all the water and urine to your designated runoff or into the catch basin.
Sometimes, despite how often you clean Porch Potty, protein in urine can build up, leaving behind lingering odours. In that case, give TURFtastic (not included) a try. Our natural enzymatic cleaner breaks down those tough proteins and restores Porch Potty to its original freshness.
What if my dog won’t use the Porch Potty?
If your puppy or dog doesn’t want to use the Porch Potty, don't worry! We've got you covered with a scenting fire hydrant that's designed to attract your dog to urinate. In the United States, fire hydrants are often used by dogs to mark their territory, and the Porch Potty fire hydrant serves the same purpose. We recommend wiping the fire hydrant with a paper towel coated in your dog's urine. This will help them recognise Porch Potty as their new toilet and trigger their natural instinct to go.

What makes Porch Potty different from other dog toilet options?
The Small Porch Potty is truly one of a kind. It has a durable yet stylish wicker design and an innovative self-draining system that makes cleanup easy. Its compact size is also perfect for petite pooches and cramped living spaces. Plus, unlike puppy pee pads that you have to throw away constantly, the Small Porch Potty can be used over and over again, making it a much more eco-friendly and long-lasting option.
How long does Porch Potty last?
Porch Potty is the only dog grass toilet that’s designed to last a dog’s lifetime. It has a durable wicker design over a steel frame and high-quality synthetic grass made of waterproof nylon strands. Porch Potty holds up in all weather conditions, including rain, snow, and below-freezing temperatures. Many of our customers have had their Porch Potties for 10 years and counting!

Porch Potty is an investment you will have for years and years to come. Puppy pee pads and subscription grass dog potties can come out to hundreds, even thousands, of dollars a year. With Porch Potty, you’ll only pay a one-time cost up front, saving you tons of money in the long run.
Porch Potty is also a more sustainable choice. We all know that puppy pee pads are terrible on the planet. And although cardboard dog potties are marketed as “recyclable,” the cardboard often gets tossed in the trash at the recycling centre because it’s so soiled. Our high-quality synthetic grass is made from recycled materials and can hold up between 6 months and 1 year before it needs to be replaced.
Plus, we think your dog deserves more than a cardboard box. Your dog deserves a toilet that’s built to last. Porch Potty is the best choice for your dog, your wallet, and the planet.
