The Doggy Bathroom
Why should cats have all the dignity of an indoor loo? Doggy Bathroom helps Fido and you. The special Keith Haring collection of pet accessories was launched in 2022 adding a bold, graphic look to the Canadian-designed and made product — the first indoor dog “litter box” ideal for small dogs (even males who lift their leg). The matching biodegradable adhesive pee pads fit perfectly (and line the side walls). Starter kit, $209, through DoggyBathroom.
