  1. Please do NOT use Suspend in areas where your dog or small children may go! It does *NOT* become safe after a few hours for your dog, like this video claims. Instead, your dog is breathing it into their nose since they use their noses so much (not to mention being toxic to non-offending insects). I fail to see the purpose of using poison on ants or flies in an OUTSIDE space (the outdoors are their domain, after all), but if you must use something, please stick to the organic options (i.e. diatomaceous Earth) and do NOT expose your dogs—or children—to poisonous chemicals. (Is this guy even a licensed pest control expert? He should not be handing out pest control advice, since he is misinformed.).

    Edit: That said, I like the idea of the designated pee area for dogs and appreciate the video for that reason. The information is easy to follow and helpful for building the area.)

  2. which pea gravel did you use ? can you send a picture ?

  3. Do the gravels get stuck under your donkeys paws?

  4. Very useful thanks brother

  5. I know this is a bit of an older video, but can someone please help me. Im planning on making a potty area on our balcony, I am thinking of using a kiddie sand box that is around 125cmX125cm and height is 14cm. So any ideas on how to fill it up, layer by layer(my balcony floor is tiled, with a small drain a few feet away from where I plan on placing the sand box. I need to protect the tiles as we are renting)
    Also would I need to make drainage from the sand box to the drain, or would the layers in the box be enough to absorb and dry out🤔 my first plan was to put in real grass turf, but now im thinking of gravel. ideas would be very much welcomed and appreciated 😊

  6. Also I have a female dog and she tends to squat really low to the ground to pee I wonder if the small gravel bits will get in her private area and cause problems?

  7. You could use a lemon garlic boiled water mixture to spray in the area as an organic odor neutralizer to kill order causing bacteria that can help eliminate bugs. And putting a doggy Dooley for the poop in the in the that area like a organic toilet for your dog poo

  8. my brother who lives in SC has a BEAUTIFUL lawn that golf course managers would be jealous of – and his new Labradoodle's urine was leaving burn marks so he now gives him a probiotic chew and the burn marks stopped

  9. Just commented on the first vid and then found this one. Again, AWESOME info and this follow up is much appreciated cause I had some of the same questions! lol Thumbs up AGAIN from me. 😉

  12. Mulch eats the urine ……

    That's really pretty! I wouldn't use an insecticide. Use DE, but it DOES rinse away in rain. Insects are GOOD to have there to break things down, however. Especially if you live in an area with DUNG BEETLES. If you DO, they break the feces down in a matter of days.

  17. Where do you dispose of the solid waste? Do you use one of the in-ground disposal systems or does it go into the trash?

  18. Thanks so much!!

  19. Use food grade diatomaceous earth for the bug issue! They generally sell it by the pound at feed stores & as long as it's not raining a lot in your area it should work. I'm looking forward to creating one of these areas for my lawn. 🙂

  20. Super helpful. I'm about to tackle this project! Thanks!

  21. Thanks for the helpful video! Any tips on how to train your dog on using the potty area? My puppy prefers the grass in the garden to the stones in the potty area… She's only 5 months old, hopefully I'll manage to teach her.

  22. a question: in the hot summer, would it be too hot on the rocks?

  23. What a help! Thank you and your dog is beautiful!

  24. Really like this idea! I'll be doing a video at some point and will refer people to.your video if that's ok. Need to do this with my dog!

  25. Thanks for sharing your experiences building and using the potty area! Very helpful.

  26. We trained our dog as a puppy to go to the rock section in our yard. It has worked well for clean up too 🙂

  27. The dog potty area is a great idea…… Thanks for sharing your experience with it..The pros and cons.
