How to choose the best turf for dogs?

The three most important factors in dog turf are durability, versatility, and appearance.

  • It needs to be durable so it looks great for many years. While installation can be quick, you don’t want to have to replace it constantly.
  • The pile height and length of blades can influence the look and feel. Typically, you’ll want to go with a shorter pile for dogs, making solid waste cleanup the easiest.
  • And an in-fill like silica sand or crumb rubber goes under the turf to prevent matting.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can dogs pee and poop on fake grass?

Yes. Pee goes right through to the ground. Pick up poop just like you would in a park.

How to clean a dog potty from pet turf?

Pee goes through. You’ll pick up solid waste. To clean more thoroughly and prevent odor, hose the turf down. Then spray a 1/2 vinegar/water solution in commonly used areas. Then rinse with a hose again.

Can dogs rip up fake grass?

When high-quality turf is installed correctly, a dog should not be able to rip grass or scrape blades from the backing.

Does fake grass get too hot for dogs in summer?

It doesn’t get as much as pavement or rock, but it is hotter than grass. It’s ideal to have a shaded area turfed for use on scorching days. If this isn’t possible, hosing it down before use can help.

Can my dog be allergic to pet turf?

Like humans, dogs can be allergic to anything. However, a dog is much more likely to be allergic to real grass. Many people with grass-allergic pets get dog turf for this reason.

How long will dog turf last?

With proper installation, a high-quality dog turf should last at least 15 years, sometimes 20.

How often should I replace dog turf?

Like re-paving your driveway every 10 or so years, you’ll need to replace artificial turf for dogs every 15-20 years.

How do you refresh pet turf?

You can brush turf periodically to remove pet hair that may have gathered. A professional can also use a power tool to remove pet hair, check the in-fill, and apply an enzyme to break down any lingering organic matter. 

How long does it take to put turf for dogs down?

Installation of dog turf can take 3-5 days depending on the size of the project, removing existing grass, amount of leveling or preparation necessary, etc.
