How do you make a porch dog potty? You can use a drip pan from a water heater, a piece of plywood of the same size as the drip pan, and a hose for draining water to create this porch potty. This drainage system allows you to “flush” after the dog pees; by simply pouring water on the grass it cleans and drains the mess through the drain pipe.
