What Is It

Every self-respecting pet’s owner knows that a litter box is an important thing to have. In our review, we're going to compare some of the most popular litter boxes on sale, purchased for cats and miniature dog breeds worldwide. Everyone knows that cats are very neat and fastidious animals. More than all they demonstrate the disgust to the dirt. This is where choosing a litter box should be a deliberate decision. Hopefully, our comparison of the best litter boxes on the market will help you make the right choice. If you're just about to adopt a kitten or a puppy, you definitely need to read this!

These accessories are intended for your pets. Those pets that dwell in a yard or on a patio usually relieve themselves there. Though we would like to improve their conditions and recommend you choosing one of the best dog houses for your pet to comfort it.

What To Look For

When choosing a litter box tray for your pet, the first thing to look at should be the Construction. Cats and dogs have different tempers and obviously, different preferences. The good news is, there's a variety of litter boxes to choose from. A universal, common construction is made of one piece and thus, is suitable for most cats and dogs. A lot of customers go for this model and for very obvious reasons. It can be used for pets of different sizes and it is usually very affordable. The only drawback of the construction issued by customers is a difficulty to keep the filler and litter inside. The litter boxes with high boards are better in this sense. If you've happened to adopt a timid cat or a dog, you may want to consider buying a hooded litter box. Not only does it keep the litter and filler in the tray, but it also gives a feeling of safety and comfort. Besides, it controls the odors as well. Pay attention to the litter boxes, offering a self-cleaning system. 

The other thing you surely need to consider is the Size of the tray. If you don't want your pet to use a carpet to defecate, the litter box tray should be comfortable. If you plan to get a closed tray, make sure to check whether the chosen litter box offers enough space for your growing pet. Tiny trays won't take a lot of room in your place, that's true, but if they aren't comfortable to use, there's very little sense in buying them at all. The comfort of your pet should not be overlooked.

In the race for leadership, manufacturers think of many things to stand their products apart from the competition. Consider the Features of different models and decide what will work best for your pet. The litter box should be easy to clean and wash. Better than that, it should even remove the litter for you so you don't touch it at all. Very few people would not mind the stinky odors, but if you prefer pleasant aromas, look for a box paired with a charcoal filter, absorbing bad smells. After all, making the choice is up to you!

Review of Booda Petmate Clean Step LitterBox Dome

Booda Petmate Clean Step LitterBox Dome

Booda Petmate Clean Step LitterBox Dome

Construction

This is a smartly designed hooded kitty litter tray. It can become a great addition to your home interior. The best selling variant for big and small cats which are timid and like to hide from everything and everyone. But if your cat prefers open top litter boxes, you can simply take off the hood and use it without this part of construction.

Size

This is the biggest kitty litter tray in our shortlist. It perfectly suits cats of big sizes. Even such a big breed as Maine Coon can easily use this litter tray. The great advantage of this model is its weight (it's hard to flip it over). But in spite of the size you can place it in any room of your flat or house.

Features

Due to the peculiarities of this interesting snail design, the odors are going to be absorbed. In addition, the Booda box litter is packed with a charcoal filter which also helps to prevent odor. So, you can keep your head if your friends suddenly come around to visit you. The great advantage of this model is clean-stop ramps - they catch granules of filler so that the paws of your pet and the area around is always clean.

Review of IRIS USA, Inc. Open Top HighSide Litter Box with Shield and Scoop

IRIS USA, Inc. Open Top HighSide Litter Box with Shield and Scoop

IRIS USA, Inc. Open Top HighSide Litter Box with Shield and Scoop

Construction

IRIS USA is a one-piece open top cat litter with a removable litter shield which provides privacy for your lovely cat on sides and on the back. This litter box design looks like a box - surely owners know, cats prefer square shapes. So, such a thought-out design of a cat litter box will come to liking to even the most fastidious cats.

Size

The size of the IRIS USA litter box for cats is 18.9 x 15 x 11.7 inches - this is a bit more than any middle tray, so you can place it anywhere you like. It will be a great purchase if you have a single-cat household. But this model cannot be suitable for two cats (little room). So, if you are the owner of one cat, with this litter box your pet will never look for another place to defecate.

Features

Such a small litter box is easy to disassemble and clean. The high boards are really a sound decision of the manufacturer - filler will not be scattered around the place after each pet's relieving. IRIS USA comes together with a scoop, so you can simply remove the waste. You can actually attach the scoop to the tray and never lose it. The choice of colors is also available, though the price may slightly differ. We also encourage you to buy a special mat that would not let the litter and filler spread around the house.
