Dog Porch Potty

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
screws- $5
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
so over all I spent around $60 bucks

Teacher Notes

Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.

Step 1:

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  

Step 2:

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  

Step 3:

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

    I use disposal bed pad (the kind that they use in human hospital) place it in the potty tray. When my Loki did his business, I rolled the pad and put in the poop bag and throw away. I find out it is so handy and easier for me to clean up his "business". Human bed pad is cheaper than the one for the pets, too.

    Nice idea, but the gravel or stones are much more environmentally friendly, and don't cost anything :)

    Just finished this. Yours was an inspiration but I went a different way with gravel. Thanks!
