Can Your Dog Use a Litter Box?
The Advantages of Litter Training
"Animal behaviorists have long known that litter boxes ? or simply
newspapers ? can be employed with some benefit for some dogs. In our
pet culture, however, we automatically assume that puppies must learn
to eliminate outdoors. Until they do, we provide newspapers or some
other indoor litter substrate for their convenience and for our ease
of cleaning. But why do we put so much effort into encouraging our
dogs to graduate to an outdoor location? After all, dogs can be
trained to use an indoor bathroom facility as we do. Think about it.
Also, if your dog has trouble walking any distance because of
osteoarthritis or old age, or if she suffers from a medical problem,
such as diabetes mellitus, which causes increased urination, a litter
pan is certainly a humane alternative to having your dog hike long
distances to an outdoor location, possibly after waiting uncomfortably
for an escort. A litter box also can provide relief for any dog whose
human companion works long hours."
