How frequently you change the grass depends on a number of factors, such as the size and age of your dog, as well as how frequently it’s being used.
Your brand new puppy will most likely go potty every couple of hours around the clock. During this time, your puppy will use their Piddle Patch approximately 80 times over the course of the week. As such, you’ll probably need to change the Piddle Patch every 1 – 2 weeks.
In the following weeks, your puppy’s ability to hold their bladder will start to improve, and they’ll start going to the toilet outside. This means that your Piddle Patch potty pad will need to be changed less frequently.
The age of your dog, the frequency with which your Piddle Patch is used, the personal preferences of both your dog and yourself, as well as whether your grass has access to natural light, water, or maintenance, can all impact the lifespan of your grass. For example, grass used outside on a balcony or terrace tends to last longer because of its access to sunlight.
Customers have reported usage ranging from one week to several months, so there really isn’t a “one-size-fits-all” answer. A good way to gauge how long your grass will last your dog is to order a one-off delivery to start with or to sign up for a subscription and adjust it as needed. It’s easy to log in to your account and change the frequency of your Piddle Patch delivery once you have a subscription.
If your goal is to have your puppy potty solely on grass, then using real grass to housetrain from the start will make the process easier, as the puppy has learned exactly where to go from the first instance.
