"Koda from New York"
Koda is our newest addition to our furry family, and is an adorable little Chocolate Sable Pomeranian puppy. He is doing great with potty training thanks to the PTPA.
We wanted to train him to go potty outside with his big sister Moxie, but also wanted an alternative for him to use in the house at night while we're sleeping. As you know, puppies go potty every 1-2 hours when they're small, and 15 minutes after they eat or drink - so it's hard for them to hold it throughout the night while we're sleeping and sleep deprivation is challenging for a human when you have to work the next day! We were also juggling care for Moxie, who recently had hip surgery to correct hip dysplasia that she was born with...and the PTPA helped to reduce the chaos while we juggled life with our new puppy Koda, and care for our recovering dog, Moxie.
So, I purchased the PTPA and the gated enclosure (PTPA Playpen) to get started. When we took Koda home, he was only 9 weeks old. We got him used to sleeping in his little one bedroom, one bathroom puppy apartment, and we used the PTPA at night while we're sleeping as a training tool - - and he loves his puppy apartment. He goes potty in the bathroom section throughout the night and when we wake up in the morning, we take him outside, and he goes potty on command in our yard! During the day, we leave him in his PTPA Playpen area with his PTPA and he uses the bathroom section whenever he has to go potty. We're in Level 2 training now, and he's only 13 weeks old!
We're so grateful to have such a great learning tool to use, while we're training our little guy. It's given us piece of mind during the early stages of puppyhood and in our everyday life.

"Cooper from Missouri"
I just picked up my new puppy yesterday, Cooper; he is 8 weeks old and is having huge success with his new apartment. Last night was his first night home, he woke up, used his bathroom and went back to sleep. I was thrilled! No getting dressed to take him out to go! He woke up in the morning, I placed him in the bathroom and told him go potty, and waited a few minutes and he did! He has been using it all day, and he goes straight to it to go potty, we have the door open so he can go in and out, he is confined to the kitchen.
I also have a one-year-old female of the same breed (Maltese mix) and it is all too familiar getting up in the middle of the night to take her out. Once the puppy is trained I will be re-training her to use the apartment as well.
So happy with this purchase and please to provide our Puppy Apartment review!

"Louie from California"
Recently my partner and I decided to add a puppy to our family. Louie is a beautiful 4-month-old Bichon Frise who has brought so much joy and laughter into our lives in such a short period of time. My partner has never had a dog as a pet and as a result has fear around the unknown.
When looking for ways to successfully potty train Louie and to do so asap, I came across the PTPA. Once I ordered the puppy apt, it arrived quickly and within the first 6 hours Louie was able to make the connection between the words "Go Potty" and the actual action. The PTPA allowed me to teach Louie using the simple methods demonstrated in the puppy training DVD we received when purchasing the PTPA. Within 3 days Louie graduated to Level 2 potty training.
Needless to say, my partner's fears were put to rest. We are now able to enjoy Louie and Louie is now able to rest and be at ease in his new home. I've since suggested the PTPA to friends who already have dogs and friends who are contemplating. If you have never cared for a puppy and are considering it, the PTPA eliminates most problems that can occur from inexperienced caretakers. PTPA makes training puppies easy and fun!

"Tucker from New Mexico"
I have a 2-year-old male Dachshund/Wirehaired mix named Tucker. The PTPA has been a great way to keep Tucker and I very happy. Not only does the Puppy Apartment offer an area that is safe and warm for Tucker to sleep but also a place for him to stretch and potty as well. It keeps my home clean as well as lets Tucker remain comfortable throughout the day. If I’m at work, the Puppy Apartment lets me be there worry free. No need for me to wonder if my dog is destroying my home by chewing it up or pottying everywhere. I have already recommended this product to others with puppies and even adult dogs. So I also recommend this to anyone who may read this Modern Puppies review. I give the PTPA a 10 out of 10.

"Jasper from Illinois"
I was not excited at first about getting a new puppy. My daughter and I live in a lovely second floor, two-bedroom condo. I envisioned sleepless nights and urine-stained carpets. We discovered the YouTube video of the Puppy Apartment, and I was willing to consider this interesting approach to puppy training.
The Puppy Apartment arrived the day before we picked up our welsh terrier, Jasper. We watched the DVD explaining the training process, and we talked through what our routine would be like for this new addition to our family. There have been no sleepless nights and Jasper’s accidents have been extremely limited. I am thrilled!
The Puppy Apartment makes so much sense and has been so easy to use. We have had Jasper for less than three weeks, and we are almost ready to move on to Level 2 of the training. The Puppy Apartment is great!

"Nathan from New York"
As the owner of an 8-week old Dachshund named Nathan (I named him after Nathan’s franks, since he reminds me of a hotdog), I was faced with the challenge of potty training a puppy that is extremely independent and self-motivated by nature. The PTPA allows him to please his owner while still being able to maintain his level of independence.
There are many clever inventions on the market designed to minimize the stress many puppy owners face when potty training their beloved young pup, however, the PTPA is the best invention I’ve ever seen!
It allows the puppy to be potty trained in a non-labor intensive manner by way of taking advantage of the puppy’s natural instinct not to soil where he sleeps. The PTPA also allows the puppy to be positively reinforced by adding various levels of freedom as the level of trust is increased with both the owner and puppy.
After watching the PTPA Instructional Video, I was off to a great start. My puppy is now 10 weeks old and he is already on Level 2 of the PTPA training. I am extremely confident that he will be at Level 3 in no time. Thanks PTPA!

“Mojo from Texas”
I was on youtube one day trying to find ways to potty train my 4-month-old Mojo who was having a hard time with crate training. We just had the regular crate where we had to let her out and use the regular plastic puppy pad that just lay on the floor. Mojo wouldn't always go on the pad and when she did she often missed the pad by an inch or two. I think it was because she did not really have any boundaries and couldn't tell the difference between the puppy pad and the actual floor. She would often urinate right in her crate too, which would lead her hair to turn yellow.
Then on the side of the youtube website I saw an ad for Modern Puppies. I called the office to ask a few questions then decided to buy a Puppy Apartment. Once I received the Puppy Apartment my husband was able to assemble it with ease. We took all three doors off so our dog Mojo would be able to go in and out of the Puppy Apartment three different ways. Mojo would run around our apartment and when she felt the urge to urinate she would run into her Puppy Apartment and urinate on the right area. My husband and I were surprised that she knew where to go right away. She was able to do this with just one day of having the Puppy Apartment.
We thought that Mojo would never get potty trained until now. It has now been a few weeks and whenever we tell her to go potty she is able to do it on command and into the "bathroom" area (we learned how to do this from the Instructional Video that came with the Puppy Apartment). The Puppy Apartment is wonderful because we live on the second floor and our Vet has told us that she cannot go outside yet because she has not had all her shots. The Puppy Apartment allows us to potty train her in our apartment. Thank you Modern Puppies. It was my pleasure to provide this Modern Puppies review.

“Puddles from New York”
I happened to find the PTPA video on YouTube when I was searching for a video of my puppy. I was intrigued and did more research on your website. After speaking with a Modern Puppies representative over the phone, I decided to purchase one.
Well, needless to say, I'm amazed. I set up my PTPA on Friday. Today is Monday and there has not been one accident since it was set up! Puddles, my 10-week-old miniature poodle puppy adapted to it immediately. As soon as it was set up, without any encouragement he went through it and settled into his bedroom for a sit down. I live in a large studio apartment in Manhattan and because of the set up, the PTPA is situated between my kitchen and my living room. The two end doors are open one leading into the kitchen and one into the living room . His bedroom is in full sight of my living room. I have a Murphy Bed in that room so that he can see me. This is where I spend most of my time when I am home. During the day when I'm not home, he has the entire kitchen and a very small area in front of the PTPA which we call his "veranda" as his living area.
What is amazing to me is that Puddles will be playing in the living room and all of a sudden make a b-line for the PTPA in order to do his business. Today I went to work and I was out for 5 hours. When I returned home, he had used the PTPA a few times and did not soil the kitchen! Before the PTPA, he started to use the wee-wee pad but we had about a 40% failure rate. I can't say how pleased I am with your product. I would recommend this to anyone raising a puppy. It's a miracle! Absolutely superb!
