Professional Dog Toilet

Written by John Walton

You have seen other dog toilets. They are hard to maintain, stinky, and full of bacteria. However, this is one object that you can’t live without if you want a clean home and a happy pooch. House-training is part of any dog owner’s life, but there are times when the hassle is too big – Fido might be too stubborn or you might not have the time and energy to invest in the training. That’s when the dog toilet comes in handy and why producers like Woofloo decided it’s time for an upgrade in the industry.

Woofloo (www.woofloo.com) makes professional dog toilets that are designed to be a near maintenance-free experience for you, the pet owner! This toilet will take care of the waste and leave the area odor free. Sounds a bit too good to be true? Well, let’s discuss the features of this professional dog toilet and how it actually works.

Design and Appearance

This product is designed with ease of use in mind. This means that any dog, big or small, can use this toilet without having to understand complicated instructions. The toilet is designed with artificial turf grass that allows urine to drain properly and prevents fungus from growing. Even more, the green color on the lawn will last for about 5 years, plus the lawn is easy to clean and take off the toilet to wash (it can be either machine washed or washed by hand).

Woofloo has a subscription service which allows you to order the artificial turf grass and have it delivered to your home. This way, when the old one doesn’t work for you anymore, you can simply replace it and move on with the product. And more important, you get to have a patch of green grass in your home!

How about flushing?

Your Woofloo will have a Flush and Drain system that is built into the frame of the dog toilet, allowing it to deter urine smells. Since we mentioned the frame, you should know that it is made from aluminum and electro-galvanized steel, which allows dogs up to 110 pounds to use the toilet without problems. So, regardless of the fact that Fido is a giant or a cute, small dog, this toilet will adapt.

Flushing System

The professional dog toilet comes in two versions:

  • Toilet with manual flush;
  • Toilet with auto flush.

The Manual Flush version is great, but you must flush the area yourself with a hose or bucket of water. The Auto Flush option has a sensor and a water sprinkler mounted in the frame so it will know when to flush the urine away. All you really need to do is plug a garden hose into the Auto Flush System and use with ease!

Is it comfortable?

The footer of the dog toilet is adjustable and will stay on the ground, which allows your dog to gain comfort while using the product. This allows your dog have a stress free experience while doing its business. The dog toilet comes with a complimentary package of plastic bags designed for picking up your dog’s business.

A bit about appearance

This product is attractive and can be proudly displayed in your backyard, porch, or balcony. It comes in several colors like:

  • Forest Green
  • Piano Black
  • Beach Wood
  • Glossy White
  • Mahogany Wood
  • Espresso Wood

These toilets come in various rectangle sizes to fit virtually any space! There is also a hydrant for those dogs who feel the need to mark their territory on something, which is removable. The different sizes are:

  • Small: 40 x 80 cm
  • Medium: 80 x 80 cm
  • Large: 80 x 140 cm

How does the toilet work?

The process is quite simple: after your pet urinates and has stepped off of the toilet, a sensor will go off and the whole area will be rinsed off and flushed for 30 seconds. If you need to pick up poop, use the plastic bags or something to clean up the area. If there is residue left over, you can detach the grass and wash it, or you can follow specific instructions in the manual that comes with the toilet.

Drainage options

Keep in mind that you will have to select your type of drainage – a storage tank or a flexi hose:

  • Flexi Hose: In the package with the toilet comes a 2-meter corrugated hose that can be plugged into your drain. This is recommended for use in the backyard, balcony or terrace areas.
  • Storage Tank: If there is no drain near, and if you want to use the product indoors, you will use a storage tank. This is put underneath the dog toilet and has to manually be emptied into the toilet.

User Experience: opinions and reviews

Owners of this dog toilet have reported many great experiences by using this product. Let’s see a few:

  • Their dead grass and plants have grown back. If greenery is constantly targeted by urine, the area will die and the grass will need a while to grow back.
  • They have reported there is no more urine smell. The odor can be terrible, and by using the Woofloo, the odor has been eliminated.
  • People enjoy that the product is sturdy, attractive, and meant to last forever.
  • After using it, the area properly flushed ready for use again quickly.
  • Users also like that it is better for the environment as well.
  • It is made from aluminum and steel to keep repairs to a minimum, plus the grass detaches to clean easily by hand or in the washer!

Other Products in the market

Woofloo is the stylish, all-in-one toilet system that you will only need to buy once. It is highly durable, easy to use and has a range of colors, sizes, and ways to use it. Below we listed some other comparable products on the market to see how they match up to the professional dog toilet.

The Pet Loo and Mini Wee

This product comes in two sizes: the Pet Loo and Mini Wee:

  • The Pet Loo is 33” x 33” x 5” and weighs 15 pounds.
  • The Mini Wee is 25” x 25” x 5” and weighs 11 pounds.

There is no flushing system. Instead, the urine will soak through the grass and collect in a cup underneath that has to be regularly changed.

Solids are meant to be scooped and put in the collection cup for disposal. It is recommended to purchase separate grass so that you can interchange them during cleaning. A separate Wee Care Liquid can be sprayed on the grass each day to kill bacteria.

Wizdog Indoor Dog Potty

This product comes in one size and one color: blue. It is designed for easy use and cleanup after each time your dog uses it. There is mesh plastic on it so the urine can soak to the bottom but solid waste will require immediate clean up and disposal.

There is no container for easy cleaning and you have to line the bottom with a newspaper which needs cleaning afterward. While it is easy to clean, the process is messy and constant. The good part is that your dog cannot shred up the soiled newspaper thanks to the mesh grate.

Pawhut Grass Pad Doggy Potty

This product comes in one size: 20 x 25 inches. There is synthetic grass that has 2 layers to soak up urine that will then drain into a small tray below.

This should be washed frequently. While it is weather resistant and reusable, it is not low maintenance by any means and does have to be replaced after some time.

Pet Maker Puppy Potty Trainer

This potty trainer comes in 3 sizes: small, medium, and large. It is a mat and tray system like any other doggy relief products and is meant for indoor use.

It does have an odor resistant turf, which soaks up the urine and transfers it to the tray for later disposable, making it somewhat easy to clean, but you will do it more frequently.

Indoor Pet Bathroom

The top layer is made from synthetic grass and has a drain at the base layer, which tilts to allow urine to drain, and can be disposed of later. Waste can be picked up from the grass and washed by hand, because it does not detach.

Indoor Pet Bathroom

You will have to clean the urine tray quite frequently and there is not much to do about the odor except rinsing the grass area quite often. It also only comes in the color black and will have to be replaced faster than the Woofloo.

Dog Pet Potty Patio Trainer

This product can be used indoors, but is best for patios and balconies. It has 3 layers that soak up urine but only comes in one size, which is 25 x 20 x .5 inches. The tray that is at the bottom of this trainer holds up to one gallon of urine that will need to be disposed of regularly and the tray must be cleaned. It is portable and can be taken on the go.

However, because this is a trainer, it is not meant for lifetime use, but for potty training your new puppy. It is also not meant for larger dogs.

Wrap Up

By now, you should be a full believer in the Woofloo’s professional dog toilets! You can reserve it now and secure 30% early bird discounts! It is by far a superior product and offers comfort for both Fido and you, the owner. After all, with all the hassles of your life, why not have one less when it comes to taking care of your dog’s waste?
