Litter training was once reserved only for cats, but in recent years been used to train canines for housebreaking as well. The equipment is very basic and consists of a sturdy plastic pan to house the litter, a bag of dog litter, and a scooper to clean out the mess. The concept to teach your dog is very similar to paper training, but clean up is often easier. You scoop, toss, and you're done. The pellets are a highly absorbent material, imbedded with a scent which is meant to attract dogs to eliminate there.
Litter training is ideal for small to medium sized dogs and for people who live in apartments or lack easy access to the outdoors.
