When we had Cody we made an area with artificial turf under our cover for Cody to do his duty when it rained. For some reason he hated going out in the rain although he loved to swim. Go figure. anyways it was easy pick up and just hosed right off. Not sure if this is something you can install on your decking?

Easier and cheaper to buy PJs that look like clothes. I know all my neighbours are wearing their PJs under their coats first thing in the morning - so am I, but I bought black PJs to try to fool everyone.

In warmer weather, I just change quickly into shorts and a tee.

In the US, people wear their PJ's to the grocery store!

Not me. But to take the dog potty, sure...lol

I would just keep a long robe by the door if you're concerned about the neighbors. Personally I go out in my yard all the time in my pj's. I figure I'm paying taxes to do what I want in my yard and if it bothers someone to see an old lady in pj's then their head is turned in the wrong direction and I can't fix that for them
Man! I must shock my neighbors. I routinely go outside either buck naked or in a bra/ panties/ both. If I have to go our front, I'll either wear a towel or a robe. Or a long jacket. But in the back yard. Eh. Whatever. If someone doesn't like what they see, they shouldn't be looking. This morning I was in the backyard in cut off sweat pants, and bra and sweatshirt (only because it was right above freezing and I got cold) lol!!!

I think PJs are fine. It shouldn't be anyone's business and if they talk about it, we all know whose got small or closed minds.

I have an old friend who has a GS mix and lives in a condo. She needed a place for Misty to potty too and she finally found what would work for her. She got a metal pan that is about 3 ft wide and almost as long, filled it with kitty litter and placed a piddle pad over the top middle. Misty would use the piddle pad and after getting over the feel of the litter would use this. After a while the piddle pads were removed and Misty would go on the litter alone. Easy to clean and it works for her. This is only for the first bathroom break in the mornings and she is taken to the back yard area for the complex for the rest of the potty breaks, but she loves having a place Misty can go potty without her having to get dressed to go to the other place.

Perhaps this set up might work?

We have a potty platform with astroturf for Yogi and I take him out in PJs with a coat and hat. My immediate next doors can look out their upstairs window and view it all, but I don't care about that. It's more important that Yogi be trained! We hose the turf down and disinfect it periodically.

Thanks, that is helpful.

I think i worded my initial message wrongly. The issue is more to have somewhere nice for isla to go rather than on the horrid area outside the buidling (which also coincides with being in full view of the neighbours and car park). I can live with people seeing me in my jammies - usually teamed with turquiose crocs and a wooly hat

Ha! As you can tell, most of us don't give a darn about going outside in our PJ's to help the dogs get their business done. Funny, to others perhaps, but for thoughs of us with dogs, just a normal occurance. Wonder if we shouldn't post a thread and show pictures of what we sometimes look like when we go out first thing in the morning, course I would have to post, but then would have to hide for the rest of my life. I'm scarey in the mornings...have hair that isn't happy waking up unless it can stand in 10 different directions and none of which are pointing down!
