Mana and her owner, Jana, connected with us on Facebook. It’s exciting to see a member of the Facebook community connect with us and share their great story.
Jana (Mana’s owner) shares: “Mana is a 5 month old chihuahua. I live in an apartment, work and go to school so it is not always easy to make sure she gets out on time to do her business. I also live by the beach where the weather can be generally nice but it can easily get too cold for her. I tried pee pads, but she likes to tear them up and I have also tried a litter box with dog litter, but she liked to eat the paper pellets. I had heard about indoor “grass” potty for dogs so I did some research and found Porch Potty. I am really glad I did because it has helped us both quite a bit; I enjoy a mess free house and Mana enjoys having her own little piece of the outdoors without the outdoor weather.”
Here are the top 10 reasons why – courtesy of Pet Sitters International:
It is a GREAT day to make people, in and around your work place, aware of the heartbreaking life, struggles, and challenges for shelter dogs. And, the need for adoption.
Who knows?Â Perhaps someone at your place of work, church, school, or an organization where you volunteer has been thinking about adopting a dog, and this small gesture will help them know that it is the best decision they can make.
Even if you can’t take your dog to work during the day – where can you take your dog during your off-time that day and help spread the word?
When someone asks you or mentions “hey, cute dog!” – you can respond – “It’s take your dog to work day.Â There are many dogs at the shelter looking for a home. If you or someone you love could rescue one they’ll make a remarkable difference in your life.” It might be just the change that someone’s seeking.
River and her owner, Jillian, have been active Facebook fans and Porch Potty supporters for a while. Jillian posted some great picture of River on her Facebook album and they were just adorable! We couldn’t resist sharing them with you!
Jillian, (River’s owner) shares:
â€œRiver is a 2-year- old Chihuahua. She first started using the Porch Potty about a year ago. I use clicker training to teach River tricks and appropriate behaviors, and used this training method to teach her to use her Porch Potty. Although we take regular walks, River does not tolerate the cold, rain or snow very well. She also cannot go outside unattended due to her size. These issues, combined with the fact that we live in a second floor apartment, prompted my investigation into possible â€œpottyâ€ options. River and I are so happy that we found the Porch Potty. It is amazing how something like this has made both of our lives so much easier. The Porch Potty is one of the best purchases Iâ€™ve made and the customer service team is outstanding.â€ –
