Review: Four Brands of Dog Litter Boxes

Words can’t really describe how dog owners feel about their canine best friends. As a dog owner myself, I know how much effort and commitment my fellow dog owners have for their pets. We treat them like our own children, give them the utmost care and affection, always consider their best interests, and place them on the top of our list of priorities.  photo

Being a dog owner isn’t all fun and games, though. There’s one period in our dog’s life that a lot of us wish we could just skip: potty training. Housebreaking can be especially challenging, perhaps even torture, for dog owners who live in an apartment or condominium. It certainly helps having a terrace or lawn so you don’t have to go down ten floors every time your pet needs to do his business.

Lucky for us apartment dwelling dog owners, there are many canine litter boxes available on the market to make our lives easier. Here are some of them (Porch Potty, Pet Patio Potty, The Pet Patch, Wizdog), ranked according to these criteria:

Easy to assemble

And the winner is… the Porch Potty!

Porch Potty

Overall rating: The well constructed Porch Potty provides ample space and coverage. It has two drain options, and the Premium model is the only dog potty box that can clean itself. All these features and more for a very reasonable price!

Pet Patio Potty

Overall rating: In second place is the Pet Patio Potty. What I liked about it is that it is stylish, well made, and can be customized in terms of materials and sizes. What I didn’t like about it was that assembly was a bit confusing, though I did manage to get around it.

Pet Patch

Overall rating: The Pet Patch is 100% recycled and 100% organic, making it a great choice for environmentally conscious dog owners. It is easy to assemble, easy to use, and low maintenance. I didn’t really have any issues with the Pet Patch, but it got a lower rating because it had less to offer in general.


Overall rating: The construction of the Wizdog might make it unsuitable for larger dogs. It is probably best for smaller dogs that are used to doing their business on training pads or newspapers. While it is cheaper, the Wizdog does require more work when it comes to cleaning and maintenance.
