Has anyone done this with any success?
We are considering getting a dog but we have a small yard with no grass so the dog would need to use one of those dog litter trays and I'm wondering if dogs really do use them or not?
The dog we are looking at getting is a rescue, fully trained, very quiet, happy to lie around all day kind of dog. I am not concerned about exercise...we have a massive dog friendly park literally at the end of our small street and it is basically just a massive grassed area and lots of people take their dogs there for a.play. The dog we want loves other dogs (living with another one in a foster home right now)We could go to the park every day plus walk several times a.week and there is someone at home most days so the dog wouldn't be lonely. We had a dog live with us in an apartment when we just jad our first daughter and it was great but she died when DD2 was a newborn and we have been waiting for the right time to add a dog to our family again. We just took her for a walk whenever she needed to use the bathroom though, we didn't litter train her. It would also be temporary...we are looking at moving in the next 12 months tops to a house with a yard. Our plan was to wait until we had bought but our kids are getting desperate (and as a huge dog lover who hasn't had one for 5 years I really miss having a dog) and daily our DS wants to go for a walk up and down our street saying hello and patting all tje friendly dogs in the street, then crying if they move too far away because he can't pat them. I have found this one dog who would be perfect for us and have contacted the shelter etc. and he is definitely a great match for us....
Would you do it and litter train a dog or are we just nutcases who have listened to our hearts way too much?
