Training Your Dog

DoggieLawn is designed to be the most convenient dog potty solution on the market. The natural smells of the living grass entice dogs to "go", just like on a walk.Training Your Dog

Pee & Reward Cycle

Get your dog to use the lawn by saying "Go Pee" (or another potty phrase) and reward with praise and treats immediately upon success!

  • Don't be overwhelmed and focus only on one Pee-And-Reward Cycle for now. And remember that while many dogs just "get it", many others need some training,

  • It's ok if they don't catch on immediately - you or your dog may just need a little adjustment to get things right.

  • We've found that many dogs mark the grass (pee on it) the very first time they smell it. Don't waste this possible moment for a successful Pee-And-Reward Cycle. Have a treat handy!

  • Have a treat hidden in your pocket so that if your dog does mark the grass right off the bat you have a treat and a ton of praise ready to go. Say "Go Pee" and if they go then give the treat and the praise.

Remember we are here with free training over email and even free phone calls with our training staff.

Training Reminders

  1. Place your dog on the DoggieLawn at toilet time. The best "go time" is early in the morning just after waking. Other times include, after a little play, after a meal or drink or right before bed.

  2. Keep your dog on the DoggieLawn for a while and pick a command phrase like "Go Pee". Be ready with a hidden reward and give with lots of praise the moment they "go"!

  3. Dogs like to mark their territory when they smell another dog has been on the grass. Use this instinct to your advantage by marking the grass with our special "Little Go Peep" Pheromone Spray.

  4. Watch out for too many walks. Dogs like to mark as far from their home as possible to make their territory as large as they can. During the initial training period when you get the lawn, you may want to cut back walks so that your dog understands that their DoggieLawn is where they can pee when a walk is not an option!

  5. Don't feed your dog or let them sleep on the DoggieLawn.
