ENTREPAWNEUR 92101 DOG SOLUTIONS Downtown San Diego start-up brings “a backyard alternative to high rise living pooches” E ntrepreneurs Tricia Crespin and Oscar Urteaga remember waking up in the middle of the night countless times because their dog, Teddy, needed to go potty. “My dog Teddy was born with a heart murmur and it progressed when we moved downtown,” Tricia tells a pet’s life magazine. “The medication he was taking acted as a diuretic, making him have to pee a lot.” Tricia Crespin and Oscar Urteaga Like most dog owners who live in a high rise, they researched different options to have a dog pee patch that could be placed on the patio. “We tried every product and service we could find,” adds Oscar. “Nothing worked because all the products used artificial turf or soil-less grass, and our dog desired texture and scent of real, fresh grass.” After months of trial and error, Tricia and Oscar created a 5-layer pee patch that could be placed on the patio of their condo, using real grass. 92101 Dog Solutions was created as a solution to living in small spaces with pets. They offer a subscription service for San Diego residents who want a real grass backyard alternative for their dogs. For one low monthly price, your dog gets a fresh grass pee patch delivered to your apartment or condo every week. The best part? A member of their staff returns in person to clean and replace it for you on a weekly basis. No cleaning, no hassle, no worries!
