When you’re a dog owner, you’re pretty much used to the fact that life with a dog can be messy. But just how messy does is have to be? When it comes to your dog going potty, that’s not a situation where you want to be getting your hands dirty. Fecal matter and urine contain harmful bacteria and chemicals that can make you, your family, and even your pets sick. And while having potty pads in your home may sound like an unhygienic option, it’s actually quite the opposite given today’s technology and manufacturers’ dedication to providing better options to pets and their owners.
