Build a dog potty area in a weekend. Site also gives training tips to teach your dog to use it. I would like to add a picket fence around it so its not an eyesore, place it in front of a doggy door, and add an invisible fence.

Alternative dog run but prefer flushable gravel one. Perfect Turf® Dog Runs No Muddy Paws! Much easier to maintain than natural grass. More gentle on your dog’s feet than gravel or mulch. Droppings become dry & hard making clean up a breeze!
