Training your small dog to use a litter box will liberate your schedule. Long days at the office, delays in traffic or unexpected schedule changes can turn a routine day into stress overload for you. Your little dog becomes stressed, too, if you cannot be there to take her outside. She is at the mercy of your schedule in her need to relieve herself. Fortunately, there is a solution that will benefit both of you. With simple litterbox-training, your dog can relieve herself when nature calls and you won't come home to a soiled carpet or wet floors. Your dog will become a responsible member of your household, your floors and carpets will remain unsoiled, and you will love the results!
Benefits of Training a Dog to Use a Litter Box:
--Away from home all day. Can you “hold it” all day long? This is what you ask your little dog to do when you cannot be there to take her outside.
--Rainy weather. How many times has your little dog gotten soaking wet just to go outside and relieve himself? Then, his muddy paw prints left stains on your nice carpet and sofa.
--Cold weather. There’s nothing like a freezing “wake-up call” to start your day! Don’t you just hate to see your little dog come back inside from a bathroom run, shivering from head to tail?
--Morning sleep-in time. Wouldn’t it be nice to sleep in sometimes, without getting out of bed, stumbling to the door and walking your dog?
--Outside dangers. Little dogs face a variety of dangers outside: menacing larger dogs, predatory birds and even an insect sting can be deadly for a tiny dog.
--Convalescing from illness or surgery. How convenient it is to have a litter box for your little dog during her illness or his post-op recuperation.
--Canine “senior citizens.” As our dogs age, they face similar problems as we do -- arthritis, joint problems and incontinence. What used to be a simple walk down the back stairs to the yard can be a painful trek for our older friends. Or maybe they simply can’t make it to the yard because of incontinence. For geriatric, arthritic and orthopedic patients, litterbox-training offers a sensible and compassionate solution for your dog’s needs
In 1995, when a tragic accident claimed the life of my precious Yorkshire terrier, Lucy, I turned my tragedy into a way to help others. I designed a litterbox-training system to protect my newly adopted Yorkie, Gracie, from so many dangers outside. And after many friends and family members told me they thought Gracie’s litter box would help other dogs, I went to work.
Dissatisfied with other products marketed as dog litter boxes, I designed my own. Working with Gracie’s patent attorney, I customized my design of the GracieLoo™, an indoor bathroom station for toy breeds and small dogs.
Through different stages in Gracie’s life, her GracieLoo™ was invaluable. When she was a puppy, it kept her safe indoors. Through her adolescent years, it provided the utmost in convenience for both Gracie & me. As an adult dog, Gracie’s consistently good litter box habits established her firmly as a responsible member of my household. But it was in Gracie’s golden years that I found her GracieLoo™ to be truly indispensable.
Note: Although I originally wrote this book as a manual for the GracieLoo™ dog litter box, you can easily adapt my training method to other products.
The AKC recognizes 21 toy breeds, all of which are size-proportionate for the GracieLoo™: Affenpinscher, Brussels Griffon, Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, Chihuahua, Chinese Crested, English Toy Spaniel, Havanese, Italian Greyhound, Japanese Chin, Maltese, Manchester Terrier, Miniature Pinscher, Papillon, Pekingnese, Pomeranian, Poodle, Pug, Shih Tzu, Silky Terrier, Toy Fox Terrier and Yorkshire Terrier. However, any small mixed-breed dog with similar proportions to these toy dogs can be trained to the GracieLoo™.
