The real grass instinctively attracts dogs, which is key to in-home training.
New York, NY (PRWEB) August 29, 2012
Caryl Wolff, a Los Angeles based dog trainer with over 20 years of experience, is recommending an innovative dog potty (http://www.freshpatch.com) for teacup pups and other small dogs.
Wolff says that Fresh Patch is particularly well-suited for owners who want to train small dogs, such as teacups, in their homes. She points out that teacups are not a breed. “The name refers to a size of dog,” says Wolff, “which is generally recognized as smaller than the breed standard for a toy dog. They usually weigh less than five pounds as adults.” Popular teacup breeds noted by Wolff include Chihuahua, Maltese, Pomeranian, and Shih-tzu.
“Because teacup dogs are so tiny,” says Wolff, “their owners can conveniently order Fresh Patch every two weeks, instead of weekly. The real grass instinctively attracts dogs, which is key to in-home training. The dog learns to ‘go’ on grass, whether inside or outside the home. Because Fresh Patch reinforces a dog’s natural instincts, it is superior to the plastic grass commonly found in indoor dog potties.” Wolff says that teacups are so small, they will think they have a whole backyard to themselves when their Fresh Patch arrives. She explains more about teacup dogs in her new books available August 31, Teacup Puppies and Dogs (http://www.teacuppuppiesanddogs.com).
According to Andrew Feld, the founder of Fresh Patch, a single unit is ideal for dogs under 25 pounds; however, units can be joined together for larger dogs. Based on his customers, Feld believes that people are gravitating more toward smaller dogs because they live in apartments and condos that have limited inside space and no access to outside grass. He also finds that his customers are often single people--young professionals and seniors--who enjoy the companionship of small dogs, but cannot always walk their dogs when nature calls. Feld says that “Fresh Patch is designed to meet the needs of these and other dog owners, by providing a convenient, reliable solution to their dogs’ bathroom issues.
