Years ago, dogs lived only in houses but an interesting development is the growth of the dog population in apartment buildings and condominium high-rises. Of course, being in a building poses some interesting challenges including potty training for dog owners and their pets.
Everything from stairs to elevators and then possibly a shortage of green space outside in downtown areas will make a lot of people in living in apartment buildings forget about the idea of having dogs, even if dogs were allowed in the buildings.
However, there is a way around this so that dog ownership is very feasible in apartments. I have done this for many years with my dogs. I even lived on the 12th floor of one condo building. The secret is potty training dogs indoors with a dog litter box.
It turns out that potty training dogs with an indoor litter box is perfect for apartment pets. Here’s a short video I shot which I talk about this interesting situation a bit more.
If you know of other dog owners who live in apartment buildings or condo high-rises, please share this video with them especially if they are still having to go outside a few times per day with their dogs.
According to Purina, Manhattan in New York city is a huge region where many apartment dogs are already use to potty training indoors. This makes sense especially given the winters there.
I have lots of information this subject at my potty training dogs indoors website.
