You might have spied this ad in the winter edition of Pawsh, “Heartsong“ — but if you haven’t, why not pop on over and check it out now? This wonderful product is called The Pet Loo and is basically an indoor, odour-free, easy to clean piece of turf in a box for your pet to do their business. Born out of necessity, this wonderful contraption was invented by Tobi Skovron when he and his wife welcomed a dog into their lives while living in a condo.
“We wanted a pet, but couldn’t afford a big house,” says Tobi. “So we created a backyard on our balcony instead. Space is a problem faced by millions of pet owners and The Pet Loo is a solution to help pets, and their owners, live more comfortably in condos and apartments.”
After three years of research and development The Pet Loo debuted on an Australian show called The New Inventors and the next day, according to Tobi, they woke up to over 500 awaiting orders! “It was unbelievable,” says Tobi. “We went from selling a couple of thousand products, to hundreds of thousands years later.”
What is truly incredible about The Pet Loo, beyond its easy-to-clean and compact design, is that it connects to a pet’s natural instincts and as a result has been successfully used by dogs, cats, rabbits and even pigs. As Tobi explains, all animals relieve themselves on grass in the wild, so it’s a natural progression to train them to do the same on a designated grassy area when domesticated.
