Potty Training for Apartment Pets

By Sarah Folmar, Brand Communications Specialist

For those of you that happen to live in an apartment or condo, getting your pet outside can be difficult. Whether it’s the fact that you live in a high-rise, you have to wait a long time for the elevator or sometimes the urban setting is difficult for your pet to find a nice grassy space, we completely understand your frustrations. Accidents happen, but they certainly aren’t fun to clean up. If you are a renter, expensive cleaning fees for carpet stains are also a factor.

The PetSafe® brand has a variety of indoor potty solutions, but the newest comes with an added bonus: A treat for your pets! We do a great job of rewarding ourselves for performing a task that may be uncomfortable. We also reward our children when they obey the rules. So why not do the same with your pet when training to use an indoor pet potty?

The Train ‘n Praise™ Potty Training System uses a moisture-detecting pee pad that sends a signal to a sensor. Once the sensor has detected the moisture, a treat is dispensed for your pet. This is a fantastic way to reward your pet for learning how to use this system, and gives them a small treat when you’re away from home to give them plenty of affirmation.

Another great aspect of this system is that the treat dispenser also comes with a remote control. This is great in helping your pet have better behavior in your smaller space. Simply click the remote control from up to 25 feet away, and a treat will come out.

When your friends come over on a Friday night, you can press the button to have your pet go to the treat dispenser versus excitedly jumping all over your guests. You are able to put dry treats or kibble into the dispenser, up to ½” in size. Rounder treats will roll down the ramp, and your dog will love waiting for the treats to come out.

You can even set the dispenser to have an audible tone that will alert your pet that the treat is coming.

We’ve also made it easy to reorder the pads for the system. You can purchase these in either a 10-pack or 30-pack, that way you’ve got plenty to stock up on. Once the colder weather moves in you’ll be happy you have this option in your apartment!

We are actually giving a complete system away right now! Enter our sweepstakes through August 25th, and we will announce the winner the next day. You and your pets will be on your way to a more convenient apartment life in no time.
