    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?

    I hate to tell you this, but as you already stated - they are very stubborn. I would just let him get used to the box & see what happens. If he "really" has to go, he will. I don't think the trapping him will be useful. With us, Tyson refuses to use the backyard. We have a nice fenced in yard, but unless he REALLLYYYY has to go, he won't use it in the backyard. We have to walk him. I'm glad that you have a dog walker - and hate that I can't give you an suggestions.

    My whole heart, Tyson.
    Whoever said diamonds are a girls best friend, obviously never owned a Bulldog.

    He may not take to it, you just never know, only time will tell, you could out him in an x-pin with his crate and the potty box and see what happens.
