I’ve had dogs my whole life, and I’m pretty sure that when I was a kid it was “go outside or bust”. I didn’t even HEAR of indoor dog potty options until I was in my 30s.
Now there are tons of indoor dog potties to choose from, some better than others (of course).
Here are 17 different types – so that you can choose the best fit for you and YOUR dog.
OK! Let’s get started.
Dog Pee Pads
The first category I’ll look at are dog pee pads.There are an amazing amount of these on the market from different brands a lots of different types to choose from.Typically these are called dog pee pads, puppy pee pads, wee wee pads, or just pee pads.
These types of scented puppy pads work well to help control urine and poo odors in between clean ups.I don’t personally usually buy this type because I really like saving money and they tend to be a bit more expensive – but they are nice if you really want to keep things smelling fresh.
Important note:Most dogs will use these without a problem, but some dogs find the scents off putting and don’t like them at all. So if you try them for the first time be sure to buy a small pack to see if your dog likes them.

Odor Eliminating Pee Pads
These are similar to the scented pee pads in that they try to get rid of the smells associated with dogs going, but instead of covering the smells they work to eliminate the scent instead.
I personally like the Nature’s Miracle products (found on Amazon) for odor elimination.They use enzymes that really work to not just cover up the odors, but actually eliminate them.
This particular can is one that can be used with regular 13 gallon trash bag and keeps the odors ENCLOSED.
Summary of Indoor Dog Potty Types
Out of these my favorite three are the bulk dog pee pads because they can save you a ton of money, reusable dog pee pads because they are much better for the ecosystem, and the real grass indoor dog potties because they are more aesthetically pleasing (but they can get kind of expensive).
