Pet Loo Portable Pet Toilet

Pet Loo Portable Pet Toilet by PetSafe Canada – Review

Temperatures in Toronto have been well above seasonal this past week and although I’m thrilled, I can’t say the same for my dog Miss Edie. Don’t get me wrong; Edie loves the warm, sunny weather, but, and this is a big “BUT, she does not like the wet, squishy, muddy feel under her paws when steeping onto the grass to go potty. Encouraging Edie to go potty on wet grass is a challenge and she has been known to “hold it” until she can find a dry area. Not only is this frustrating for me, it’s not healthy for Edie.

When PetSafe Canada invited my to view a sample of their pet products, my eyes went directly to the Pet Loo Portable Pet Toilet! “I knew a dog that could benefit from that!” The wonderful people at PetSafe Canada supplied me with a Pet Loo Portable Pet Toilet for Edie to test out. I only share information on products that I would personally use, have my pet’s use, or products I feel my readers would find of interest.

PetSafe Pet Loo Portable Pet Toilet

When I opened the Pet Loo Portable Pet Toilet box, I was pleasantly surprised to find the only assembly required was attaching 4 clips to hold the synthetic grass down. The Pet Loo Portable Pet Toilet features a reinforced base that is angled making it easy for urine to trickle down into a removable waste container for easy cleanup. You can opt to use the “Wee Sponge” in the removable container to absorb urine that flows into the waste container.

Angled so urine can drain into removable compartment

The Pet Loo Portable Toilet comes in 3 sizes: Small (53x45cm) Medium (63x63cm) and Large (83x83cm). Although Edie is considered a small dog and could most likely have used size medium, she likes to circle – sometimes many, many times before doing her business. It’s this reason I felt she would benefit from the large dog size Pet Loo Portable Pet Toilet. Of course when it comes right down to it, it doesn’t matter what I thought, Edie would be the deciding factor if  the Pet Loo Portable Toilet was a hit or not.

A quiet, easily accessible spot

The Pet Loo Pet Toilet can be used indoor or outdoors. I choose to place the Pet Loo Toilet outside in a quiet area of my garden where Edie did not have to walk over wet grass to get too and was close to the door, this way I hoped the chance of Edie using the Pet Loo Toilet would be most likely.

Success! Edie approves of the Pet Loo Portable Pet Toilet

As you can see in the photos above, Edie had no issue walking on, or using the Pet Loo Portable Toilet by PetSafe.

If like Edie, your dog does not like the feel of wet or mud under their paws, if you have a pet you are potty training, the Pet Loo Portable Pet Toilet by PetSafe may be just the product for you. You can read more about the Pet Loo, it’s sizes and features at PetSafe Canada.

  1. Hi there — I noticed you had a review about the Pooch Patch too. I’m wondering which one you liked better? I have a subscription with Pooch Patch, but I’m thinking that the Pet Look might be a more economical option over the long term – do you have a preference between them?

    Thanks!

    • Both products have their benefits, I think it comes down to which product your dog will to use. Does your dog prefer the feel of natural grass or artificial turf? The natural grass option can be used for a period of time – I personally found upwards of 3 weeks based on weather conditions and of course the size of your dog and the amount of times they use it 😉 The grass requires disposal and on going replacement. The Pet Loo option would pay for itself over time because it does not need to be replaced, however it does require maintenance as far as regular cleaning. Edie used both products without any issue, but not all dogs may. I’m thinking I will use both products depending on my situation at the time. Because I travel with Edie, the Pet Loo would be easier/cleaner to pack in my car and take with me. Let me know what you decide and how it works out for you and your pup!

  2. This looks like a well-made product and I can see where it could be useful in many situations. I have a client who has a tiny, tiny poodle who never goes outside. She uses pads and I think this could be a good option for her.

  3. We have the PupHead (same idea) and love it. We are not eh 9th floor in a city that has -40 temps in the winter. This allows a certain little someone to simply go when he needs to. We keep our indoors in our big bathroom. So we don’t need to rush home and worry about opening or closing doors for him to have access. Also the grass part on it’s own, is great for travel! We put a pee pad under – roll it up like a tiny yoga mat and TADA! on a cross Atlantic flight? no problem. Unroll it in the loo and he can go!

    • If you have the room the Pet Loo can be kept in the house for use when your away from you pet for any length of time. I like the idea of using the grass with a pad underneath it! Thanks for this tip, I believe I will be giving this a try when I’m away with Edie and there is no place for her to go.

  4. I’ve often wondered about these, if dogs used them. My dog J.R. has no problem going potty at all, but April is very particular about her potties. Like Edie, she will wait ridiculous lengths of time before going potty. I want and need to change that! I will definitely check this out! Thank you!

  5. Very neat! I imagine something like this would definitely come in handy. My dog Lucy doesn’t like to go out in the rain, so this would probably be something she would appreciate when it’s rainy!

    • I was unsure if Edie would use the Pet Loo or not, she does prefer going on grass – as long as it’s not muddy. So I was pleasantly surprised and pleased that she took to it right away. I don’t think Edie would use a pad to go on since she’s never been trained to do so.

  6. I can see how dogs would prefer this to getting wet and muddy. How easy is it to clean?

    Post a Reply
    • It’s seems to be very easy to clean so far. Because the base is slanted and drains, I have been pouring water on the synthetic grass to rinse and it drains out the bottom. You can easily remove the synthetic grass and hose it off.

  7. Hello to a fellow Canadian! Our dog doesn’t like the wet either, nor the cold. Getting him to go out at times can be tough. 😉

    PS Edie is cute!

      The Canadian weather is unpredictable, just like some people don’t like winter – some dogs don’t like it either 😉

  8. Hey – we just purchased one of these for our senior dog who is having trouble getting in/out of the doggy door now that he’s older! Great product review – I’ll review again before I get our little guy to use ours!

    • Can’t wait to hear how the Pet Loo works out for you!

  9. What a cool concept! Bean is a diva when it comes to going to the bathroom outdoors if the conditions aren’t “just right,” so I’m glad to know this exists. As she gets older, this may be something that we will need to invest in down the road. Thanks for sharing your experience!

    • Looks like Edie and Bean are both “bathroom divas”! And we know having them hold it is not ideal, so a Pet Loo may be just what Bean could use.

  10. Phoebe hates wet grass too, she’s notorious for holding it in for hours until she can find a dry place – which often ends up being our back porch! This looks like a great product for both travel and home use. Thanks for sharing.

  11. What a great option for dogs who can’t go outside or just don’t like it! I bet this would be great to take on vacation. Looks like Edie is loving his new Pet Loo!

    • The Pet Loo comes in smaller sizes that would be great for taking on road travels or trips with a dog.

  12. I would never have thought of that! Isn’t it a clever notion – and someone developed it so dogs can have a comfortable potty trip outside! I bet Edie was so pleased 🙂

    • Edie was very pleased and I was just as excited when she used it!

  13. I think it’s a fab idea, and handy for so many situations. I tried it for my puppy mill rescue Saffy but she was too petrified to stand on it. It’s certainly great for hotel stays, ferry excursions and like you say when the weather is bad. I was in Toronto with Red a couple of winters ago, and she was miserable every time she had to go out in the snow. It was such a nightmare we could have used that portable pet toilet.

    • Edie’s not been exposed to this type of synthetic grass to use it as a potty spot before so I was pleased when she took to it. I really think the Pet Loo would be perfect for hotels, apartments, condos and areas where there is little or no access to grass.

  14. The Pet Loo seems very handy to have for certain circumstances. I’m glad that Edie has taken to it and that it works well for you.

  15. Like Edie, Kilo hates getting his paws wet and muddy. Unfortunately I think he must have been trained to use a white bathmat in an early home as he likes christening white snow and white rugs or bathmats or even puppy pads. He also enjoys dry green grass so this might be a hit with him (and me as I hate taking him out in the rain, especially freezing rain.

    • Oh Kilo, the white bathmat! Kilo might take to the Pet Loo if he’s like Edie not wanting to step on wet grass.

  16. This is great! I’ve always wondered about those, especially for apartment dwellers. Seems like it would work really well on a balcony.

    • The Pet Loo would work well on the balconies of pets living in an apartment or condo.

  17. Oooh SQUEE! I’m in the process of updating my “aging dog” book and had a couple of examples for indoor potties. But I wasn’t aware of this one. *making a note* Thanks for sharing!

    • There are so many uses for the Pet Loo. It’s not just for dogs like Edie that don’t like going in the rain and nasty weather. I think senior dog would benefit from it as well.

  18. This looks like a good product, not just for training but maybe for older dogs too – like mine when I have to leave him longer than four hours. He might go here instead of his now favourite spot on the rug.

    • The Pet Loo might be just the product for your senior dog!
