Pick a location to put the grass pad and leave it there. Moving it around can be confusing, especially when getting started.
Give him time to approach the pad and explore it on his own.
Guide him on leash if he's reluctant to go near it.
Use potty commands when he's on or near the pad and praise his efforts.
Watch for the behavioral signs that tell you he needs to go and promptly guide him to the pad, on leash if necessary.
Praise his efforts big and small and reward with treats if that's something you already do.
Maintain his daily schedule i.e. waking up, feeding, walks, play, and bedtime as you train him on the pad.
Use positive reinforcement. Never scold or punish.
Redirect him if he plays, digs or eats the grass. He can do that outside on walks.
Consistency, patience and firm but loving communication are essential.
You know your pup better than anyone and he's eager to please you and to learn.

Reach out to us too! We look forward to helping you and your pup succeed with Looie.
Do I need to water the grass?
Yes but go lightly. Use the bottle cap sprinkler we sent in your first package to help control the water flow. A few sprinkles every three days is a good rule of thumb.
Can I leave the grass on my patio?
That's a great idea! We've seen patios that are decked out with other plants and the grass blends right in. We recommend you keep it in the same place while your pup gets used to it.
Does the grass need light?
Shaded areas are best for patio and balcony placements, especially during our hot Dallas summers.
When selecting an indoor location, consider areas with natural light from windows
How long will one piece last?
Puppies and seniors may require weekly to biweekly replacement pads. It also depends on how many pups will be using it. We've had grass look good for a month. We are available to help you assess more accurately so reach out!
What kind of grass do you use?
Our grass is cut the day before your delivery to assure the highest quality product.
Where does your grass come from?
We source our grass pads from grass farms (yes, it's a thing) in Texas.
Do I need to clean the grass?
Clean up poop as you would anywhere else. His urine will be absorbed by the soil. Like us, dogs like to keep it clean and tidy and he'll be more likely to keep using it if it's kept that way!
Will my dog eat the grass?
As you know, dogs naturally eat some grass to aid in digestion. Of most importance, he needs to know the grass pad is for bathroom as soon as he's introduced to it. If he keeps eating it, just keep redirecting him and he can eat grass on your walks instead.
Why does my grass look different than the previous order?
Though we do our best to provide the highest quality grass, like any living plant, grass can vary in color, length, and fill.
How do I dispose of the grass?
Dispose of your patch in our compostable bio-bags. We'll provide you with plant-based bio bags with every order. Next year, Dallas will mandate residential properties to provide recycling containers to all residents. We'll keep you updated on the mandate and we encourage you to inquire about it with your property management team.
