Introduction: Dog Porch Potty
I have been wanting the actual porch potty but could see spending 380$ on something my dog pisses on. My dog cant hold her urine and my porch potty is actually in my bathroom. I originally bought the pet zoom pee patch. I was sick of sticking my hands near where she pee's every day. So i made my version of the porch potty. i wanted the sprinklers but could find ones similar but a regular hose sprinkler could work just don't turn on to hi. my porch potty is 3ftx2ft.
2- 6x8 wood beam-$5 each
3ft of linoleum- $12
tubing for the drain i used 4 feet - $3
tub caulk- $4
artificial turf grass - $ i used what i had from my old dog potty
linoleum glue- $4
sheet of press board- $ got a scrap piece from lowes
1x8 wood beam -$2
plactic square grate that is for flouesent lighting- $13

6inx 8feet wood- cut wood to what size you want and screw together.
then cut plywood to fit inside
use the 1x1 and cut to length to fit in side to brace plywood
make sure plywood and 1x1 is at angle so water and urine run to one end of potty and down drain.
screw everything together and drill hole for were you want to drain to go
cut linoleum to size and glue down, i applied it up the sides at well
glue linoleum down, and cut hole in linoleum were you drilled hole
seal sides were linoleum connects together and drain
then allow to dry for 24-48 hours
cut florescent lighting tray to size this will allow urine to leave the grass.
make sure your drain tube flows correctly and were you want it. I hooked mine to my tub drain pipe so i pour water on pee pad and once a week spray with bleach water. smells a lot better and is a lot cleaner now. way easier to clean.
set your artificial turf on top (my second half of my grass hasn't came in the mail just yet)
i bought all my supplies at lowes
