Floor for dog room/cage


When we are both out of the house, we put the dog downstairs (unfinished basement) in a large 10x10 dog cage. She loves it down there, but sometimes she has accidents. I dont want dog urine soaking into the concrete, so i am looking for a decent solution. I want something soakproof.
*it has to be something that she won't be able to destroy. If she can get it into her mouth, it will be dstroyed. (Foam utility mats etc).
Two ideas I have, but I dont think they are great..
1. Get "sheet vinyl". They sell this in 12 foot wide rolls, so i could get one piece. No seams = no urine touching the concrete.
2. Lay plywood down over the entire area, and get some sort of vinyl/laminate tiles to stick to it.

A former neighbor of mine trained his Chihuahua to pee in a large pan of kitty litter.

Re: Floor for dog room/cage


If you put anything down that acts like a barrier, such as sheet poly, laminate, etc. any urine will either run off to your concrete or lie in a puddle (not poodle), depending on the grade of your floor. You can get 'training pads' at most pet stores but 10'x10' is a big area. Does she 'go' just anywhere or in a specific spot in the cage? If it's very infrequent, buy some cheap carpet and throw out when necessary.

What kind of dog is it and how long are you leaving her in there for?

Re: Floor for dog room/cage


I've seen some dogs destroy sheet vinyl glued to concrete.

Concrete is not a nice surface for any animal to be on, including humans. Generally speaking, a crate being used as a bathroom by a dog is an indication the crate may be too large. Since you say 10' x 10', I can see that being the case here.

You could paint the concrete with garage-floor paint.
