If you live in Portland . . . 

 

I am happy to say I discovered what seems like a fantastic competitor up in Portland, Oregon called Doggy Duty that is run by owners Amanda Shallcross & Noel Thomas. They have two sized boxes, but also custom make boxes for their customers. They do use wood (which can retain the odor from urine) - however their website says it is a specialized wood called "Ipe" and doesn't retain moisture. I also like that the bottom of the box is plastic (for cleaning). They are the first competitor I've come across who are obvious dog lovers and ethical enough to suggest their customers clean their boxes out weekly (they offer weekly sod service & cleaning up in the Portland area).

Honestly, I wish there were more companies like this one . . . there is certainly an abundance of business to be had in the dog market and it is a shame that so few are really offering something that is safe and sanitary for customer doggies. If there are any other companies that pop us like this, I will be more than happy to list them on our website.
