Doggy Bathroom is expanding with a miniature version of its industry-changing product—what it claims is the only indoor potty solution for dogs, the Montréal based company announced in a release on PR Newswire on Monday, September 27.
After making its first appearance at Superzoo Expo in Las Vegas in August, Doggy Bathroom Mini launched on September 21 on Kickstarter and already has raised over US$30,000—80% of its funding goal of US$35,000—and attracted over 221 backers worldwide in its first week. The campaign will run through October 27.
Doggy Bathroom says that it “has seen extraordinary success internationally ever since”— and has recently been awarded recogniton in the form of a 2021 Pet Independent Innovation Award for Litter Box Product of the Year.
Interested dog owners and potential backers can purchase a Doggy Bathroom Mini starter kit already and save up to 70%. The Doggy Bathroom Mini will retail for US$159/CA$179 for the starter kit, which includes the enclosure, base color of choice, pee pads, mats, rails and clips.
In comparison to the original doggy bathroom—designed for dogs weighing up to 20 pounds—the Doggy Bathroom Mini is made for mini pups and toy breeds under 10 pounds and less than 12 inches tall, including chihuahuas, pugs, toy poodles, pomeranians, shih tzus, and more.
The Doggy Bathroom can be used as a potty-training device for puppies, a seasonal solution for small breeds who cannot withstand extreme weather, or as an alternative for condo dwellers or those with limited outdoor access.
Doggy Bathroom was founded by Alain Courchesne, an award-winning designer based in Montréal, and was inspired after he adopted his Italian greyhound, Sterling. Fusing function and design Courchesne created a solution that is both sanitary and stylish. designed for both female and male dogs who lift their leg, the roomy doggy bathroom allows your dog to walk in, freely move around and use the bathroom easily, when they naturally need to.
