Anyone have any luck with this? any ideas how to make it work good? or not worth it?
does anyone have any issue with picking up poops? My gf says its so gross and wont do it? I dont see any probelm with it and have no issue picking them up to throw away
mine wee in their pots with an occasional mishap elsewhere in their home.
poops are mainly in their pots but at night they poop in their sleeping area too.
If ellie poops elsewhere she will pick it up herself and put it in the potty, jessica doesnt seem to have mishaps.
I found potty training easy, admittedly they are not perfect due to only having small tummy's. I bought the corner tray bunny size, they both jumped right in so invested in a 2nd one. For the first day I picked up and dropped their poop into the tray, I placed their hay in the tray too so they could sit in it eat and poop. day 2 I continued to pick up and pop in tray then they started getting the idea, they gained a carrot stick as a treat each time they successfully used the potty. Now 8 months on they still have hay in their potty, they bury under the fresh hay to sit then start munching and pooping. I clean the pots 3 times a day, Hubby thinks I could get away with once a day but their hay is in there too so want to keep it fresh at all times.
Good Luck if you decide to give it a go
