Fresh Patch

September 6, 2020

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!

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.

How many times have you walked your dog or let him run around the yard, only to find that he comes back to the house dirty and smelly? We would love to introduce you to Just 4 Fur.

We also gave them a squirt of the deodorizing spray when they were dry, because…why not? It’s safe, effective and smells amazing!

More about Just 4 Fur and Aharon Adouth

Aharon Adouth states he created Just 4 Fur because, “This is a marketplace where I know I can make an impact. Everything in pets and the pet accessory world is so generic that I think I can really revolutionize the way people treat, interact, and see their pets simply by bathing, clothing, and grooming them a little bit more personally. Pets are family, and its time they start getting treated a little bit more like it!” Items range from Shampoos to Deodorizing Sprays and scents include Chamomile Lavender, Sea Cucumber, Cherry Blossom, Pineapple, and Eucalyptus Spearmint. All scents come in shampoo accompanied by the spray to ensure that the delicious smell lasts as long as it can. The product is not only the best smelling shampoo and spray on the market, but will also leave your furry friend with a gorgeous new coat.

Aharon Adouth founded Just 4 Fur in 2015 when he was asked by a family member to adopt a dog, that due to unfortunate circumstances, he could no longer keep himself. Being the animal lover that he is, he could not say no. There began the journey that led to the creation of Just 4 Fur shampoos and scents. When Aharon came to pick up his new pet, the dog had multiple health problems including eye and skin infections, just to name a few. These infections were easily treated with antibiotics, but the skin infection and smell that came with it were hard to live with. After trying many shampoos on the market and failing to find one that was soothing enough, Aharon realized there was a gaping hole in the pet market that needed to be filled. He the set out to fill that hole, so others would not have the same problem. Today Just 4 Fur’s 5 shampoo scents and spray colognes fill that gap. All Just 4 Fur products are sulfate free, hypoallergenic, non-GMO and are proudly made locally in Miami, Florida.
