Dog House Training In Apartment Buildings And
High-Rise Condominiums With Puppy Litter Box

Dog House Training In Apartment Buildings

People who live in apartment buildings and who are dog owners have some very interesting challenges.  Not all buildings allow pets but in those that do, the owners living there have dog house training hurdles that folks who live in street level houses do not to face.  I know this from personal experience since for many years I often lived in high-rise condominium buildings that allowed dogs before finally moving into a street level dwelling. 

One of these condo buildings I lived in with my first two Lhasa Apso dogs Pepper and Max was a high-rise.  We were in the corner suite on the twelfth floor as shown by the arrow in the photo below.  Sometimes the elevators were really slow and we had to wait a long time for one to come.  When we got in, sometimes it would stop at several other floors before we made it to the ground level.

Unique Dog House Training Challenges


Traditional Dog House Training Not Ideal For High-Rise Condominiums

Even worse, on occasion, the elevators didn’t work at all.  To bring my two dogs outside during these malfunctions, we would have to take the stairs all the way down and then all the way back up twelve floors again.  Although this was good exercise for all, it was hardly ideal especially if traditional dog house training called for this trip two to three times per day.

Many of my high-rise condo neighbors who also had dogs did struggle to bring their dogs outside a few times each day.  Many condo residents with dogs specifically live on the ground or second floor levels just to have easier outdoor access.  Others were not so lucky as some lived in even higher floors than I did.

Fortunately, I never had to put up with such hassles as my dogs went out only for exercise and fun.  Since I had two full bathrooms, I used the ensuite one for myself and the second one for my dogs’ own dedicated washroom.  Both of my dogs had their dog house training indoors using their specific dog washroom.

Puppy Litter Box Introduced

The Purina company came out with a puppy litter box and dog litter specifically made for canines.  As it turned out, when I spoke to a Purina representative, I was told that some of the biggest markets for their Second Nature dog litter are Manhattan in New York City and in Miami, Florida where there are lots of dog owners living in apartment buildings.  This certainly makes a lot of sense.

I’m sure that this market introduction of indoor litter products for dogs by Purina and other companies was welcomed enthusiastically by dog owners who live in apartment buildings and high-rise complexes.  With the proper dog house training of apartment pets, there is no longer any need to bring them outside to eliminate.  They could stay inside to do this without messing up our homes.  This of course is greatly appreciated during bad weather.

A puppy litter box makes life much easier for both the dogs as well as their owners who live in apartments and condominiums.  However, there is a specific progression to take for these dogs.  This is why I have chosen to create a dedicated website just to help out other dog owners including those who live in apartment buildings and high-rise condominiums with this type of dog house training.
