We’re always trying to find new and unique ways to make owning a dog much easier and more convenient. The truth is that many people who have dogs (or are thinking about getting one) don’t always have a massive house for a dog to run around and play in. That doesn’t mean that your place isn’t suitable for having a dog, though – it just means that you have to think outside of the box a little bit more! If you live in a small apartment with a balcony, we at DoggieLawn recommend an addition that can transform the way that you take care of a dog – a balcony dog potty.
Why You Should Have a Balcony Dog Potty
Many people living in small apartments think that they don’t have the habitat necessary to properly take care of a dog. While some dogs may not like to be cooped up inside a small apartment, there are other breeds that don’t mind at all. If your apartment has a balcony though, it’s actually the perfect dwelling for a dog. If you place our pet potty grass on the balcony and a few other belongings, it can turn into your dog’s home away from home! It’s an excellent choice for those in a small apartment because you won’t have to take your dog outside to go to the bathroom late at night or early in the mornings and you also won’t have to deal with any potty odors lingering inside your home.
Dog-Proofing Your Balcony
Having said all that, it’s important to dog-proof your balcony to both make sure that your dog is safe and to also turn it into a place where your dog will want to be. Here are a few of our recommendations:
The first thing you should do is dog-proof your railings. While most are thin enough to prevent children from getting through, small dogs can still slip by them. By affixing plexiglass panels or even mosquito netting, you can help keep your dog safe.
Also, if you have any plants inside baskets or planters, check to be sure that they aren’t poisonous to your dog. Many container plants can be highly dangerous if your dog eats them.
As your dog won’t enjoy lying on the hard concrete, you should make your balcony more comfortable. We recommend including a water bowl, some pet-friendly furniture (or a cool spot to lie down on), and a shady area.
By following through with these suggestions, you can essentially create a hang-out cove for your dog!
