Why Real Grass?
I had two major issues when I got a puppy. I love my little fur baby, but I do not love his shedding! This was my first problem – pet hair and dander. I was hoovering near enough every day, and yet still I would come home to tufts of fur rolling across my wooden floor like a tumbleweed in a desert. It used to drive me mad. Only recently did my friend tell me about how effective a steam mop is at cleaning up any pet dander and stains left on the floors. Whilst this probably would’ve been more effective than hoovering everyday, it’s no longer needed. There are a lot of helpful tips online for first-time puppy owners who all seem to be having the same problems. I recently stumbled across the Pupster Passion Blog. After reading their reviews, I decided to get a Roomba, and quite frankly it’s been one of my better investments. No more coming home to dirty floors, and no more spending hours hoovering in vain. My second problem was house training my little pup. I spent hours reading the best tips and methods online but to no avail. Nothing seemed to work or suit me and my home. And then I found this…
There are many reasons to embrace the hydroponically grown, dirt-free grass in Fresh Patch.
Take me for example. I have a new dog, I live in an apartment and he needs to get his grass on when I’m not home, while he house trains! These real grass training pads are all-natural, and dogs instinctively want to go on real grass, so training is easy.
The living grass absorbs liquids and controls odors naturally, turning puppy potty training into a cleaner, more hassle-free process than ever. YAY!
There is no cleaning or maintenance needed because the entire unit is fully disposable. And you can order it to arrive as often as you need with their continuous Fresh Patch delivery service.
All you have to do is replace your discarded unit with a new one as soon as it arrives at your doorstep!
Try Fresh Patch if you:
*Live in a condo or apartment without a backyard
*Work long or unpredictable hours
*Wish to avoid carpet, floor and furniture mistakes
*Have limited mobility
*Are potty training new dogs or puppies
*Have an older or injured dog
*Wish to avoid taking your pet out late at night, in the rain, or in the snow
*Are fed up with cleaning artificial grass and pee pads
The Fresh Patch Standard is 16″ x 24″ inches and is designed for pets who weigh less than 25 lbs.
Fully disposable with no parts to clean — simply dispose of the entire unit when a new one arrives at your doorstep.
The standard Fresh Patch (16″ x 24″ inches) is recommended for pets less than 25 lbs.
The standard Fresh Patch combines living grass and a disposable container in a completely disposable and replaceable unit.
When the package arrives simply remove the lid and place the product where you want your pet to go.
Fresh Patch XL
The Fresh Patch XL (2′ x 4′ feet) is recommended for pets more than 25 lbs and for multi-pet households.
The Fresh Patch XL comes rolled up in a box — It does not come with a functional tray (we recommend purchasing one of our custom trays).
It’s recommended to replace your Fresh Patch every 1-4 weeks depending on the size of your pet and how frequently the product is being used.
They offer plans for delivery every week, every (2) weeks, every (3) weeks and every (4) weeks.
Switching between plans is easy once you setup an account!
The grass used in Fresh Patch is grown hydroponically (without the use of soil). The absorbent pads of living grass are lighter, cleaner, and last much longer than normal sod.
They utilize several different kinds of grass including rye, blue, fescue, zoysia and bermuda.
Most dogs get the hang of Fresh Patch immediately. Please visit the training page for some helpful troubleshooting tips and give them a call (1-800-783-7109) so that they can listen to your specific situation and offer advice.
