    Default Help with encouraging Bulldog to use “Pet Toilet”

    My boy Chubs just got a luxurious Petsafe “Pet Loo Pet Toilet “with upgraded artificial grass but he won’t use it! I’ve run out of ideas and I need help to encourage my dog to use the grass to relieve himself. But first a little background info. Chubs in 1.3 years old male English Bulldog with zero issues with house breaking in the condo. I guess I got lucky but I’m often gone for more than 8 hours so I hired a dog walker and bought this box just in case but he refuses to use it. I even went as far as acquiring the same synthetic grass used in my condos dog area. I’ve tried luring him.. I’ve used multiple scent marker products including dog urine but all failed. Chubs rather sit on the grass or chew a treat then use it as bathrooms talk about stubborn… The only thing I can think of at this point is to release him from his crate in the morning and trap him on the balcony until he delicates/urinates! Does anyone have some suggestions on what to do?

    It will be difficult to get a dog that was potty trained to go outside-to use something like that. I would guess that,even though it is on the balcony-and he has never been taught to potty there, he probably considers it part of the house. If you have a dog walker, and they come in the middle of the day, he should be fine to hold it until you get home. I have never used anything like that(for a dog....) but maybe someone else @pfgray2008

    has an idea for you. If he is so well trained to potty outside-it would be confusing for him.
