About

Meet Woofloo. The first self-flushing dog potty made of aluminium that works for all dog sizes and for all locations. It flushes the urine out and avoids any smell build-up. It's easy to train the dog thanks to its flat, sturdy design and its very soft and real-looking artificial grass. 

Woofloo gives you, your family and your dog a peace of mind.

Unlike other plastic pottys, trays and pads which half-work for a week and then end up in the rubbish bin, Woofloo is designed and made for a life time.

Don't have a dog? Then please share this page to your doggy friends because we know how hard it is to find these kind of good products. It will be the best tip or gift you make to your friends and neighbors :

Woofloo is available in 3 sizes:

  • Small: 32x16" / 80x40cm
  • Medium: 32x32" / 80x80cm
  • Large: 32x47" / 80x120cm

For most dogs, the Medium size is ideal. If you have extra space or a very large dog, then we recommend the large version. If you have a very small dog, then select the small Woofloo.

Woofloo is beautifully crafted out of high-grade aluminium and coated with multiple layers of dry paint. It looks elegant and stunning anywhere you put it.  

Woofloo comes in 5 beautiful colors:

  • Piano Black
  • Glossy White
  • Forrest Green
  • Cedar Wood*
  • Beech Wood*

You can choose your color when the campaign has completed. We will contact you and ask you then.

* Note: the wood-style colors are specially made and require the add-on UPGRADE Package. So, if you like those color options, please don't forget to also pledge this add-on.

Does your dog usually goes into your backyard/garden to pee and poo? Do you also have brown, dead grass patches or plants?

Woofloo can be used indoors and outdoors, like a balcony, porch, terrace, front or backyard. Best is to have water supply and a drainage near by. The water supply can be your garden hose or a pipe.

Woofloo Flush Timer (included)
Woofloo Flush Timer (included)

Every Woofloo comes with an unique electronic flush timer. The Woofloo Flush Timer is battery operated (2 x 1.5V AA batteries are not included in the box). You can set the flushing time (10/20/30/40 seconds) and the frequency (every 1/2/3/4 hours). How much you want to flush depends on your dog size and how often he/she uses the toilet.

Tip: 
If you use Woofloo in the garden, you can place the end of the drain hose about 2 feet under the soil (with some pebble/stones). This will be good enough to protect your grass and plants on the surface.

 

According to Cesar Milan, the world-famous dog behaviorist and star of the TV show The Dog Whisperer, the average healthy dog will produce approximately 10 to 20 ml of urine for each pound of body weight per day and adult dogs should relieve themselves at least 3-5 times a day.

Be aware that holding urine for prolonged periods of time has been linked with increased incidence of urinary tract infections and urinary stones. It has also been suggested that it may predispose to certain urinary cancers due to prolonged contact between carcinogens in the urine and the cells of the urinary tract.

If you are away from home for longer periods of time, please ensure your dog is able to relieve themselves! 

Some of our male dogs require some help to keep the pee on the grass. For this, we offer our target aiming assistant in the familiar shape as red Mailbox or a red Hydrant. The mailbox or hydrant can be placed anywhere onto the artificial grass area (best is to keep it centered).

The Mailbox and Hydrant are add-ons to Woofloo and must be ordered/pledged separately - see our Rewards. Subject to popularity, we will decide offering the hydrant or the mailbox after the campaign.

The Team was put together and is spearheaded by German-citizen Dan Ruppert. Dan is passionate dog lover with more than 30 years of dog experience. He studied business in Germany and the US, and worked in Business Development in Germany, London, Malaysia and Hong Kong. As a family man with wife, 5-year old daughter and Boxer dog Lucy, he created Woofloo to improve family life for dog people.

Dr. Maggi Bender has a PhD in Physics, works with particle accelerators and had built his first guitar amplifiers with 12 years old. Maggi is also Dan's childhood friend.

Azrin has organised and marketed the largest equestrian sport events in Southeast Asia with more than 32 leading nations participating, including the FEI World Endurance Championship in Malaysia.

Nico is the world's busiest cosmopolitan being in a different part of the world every other week. As an adviser and trainer for BMW and other global corporations, he is Woofloo's business brain.

Lucy.... everybody knows already.

First connect Woofloo's Flush Timer to a water source like a tab/faucet. The Flush Timer has various standard connector sizes so its fits with all standard water tabs. The water goes in on the top and comes out at the bottom. At the bottom you also have different connection options.

Then you need to connect the Flush Timer to Woofloo's Flush Pipe underneath Woofloo. Just lift Woofloo to the side and connect your hose with the easy hose click-on.
If you don't use a hose but a water pipe, then Woofloo offers you 3 different options on how to connect the pipe. All shown adapters are included.

 And last, you need to place the drain hose into your nearest available drain or floor trap. Woofloo's drain hose is already connected to Woofloo, so you just need to take the loose end and put it into a floor trap or drain. Please remember that this is smelly waste water, so do not let the drain hose just lie on your bathroom floor, terrace or driveway!
If you use Woofloo in the garden, you can place the loose end of the drain hose about 1 feet underneath the soil (best with some pebbles). This will allow the waste water to sink into the ground without damaging your grass or plants.

Why Kickstarter?

We have been making prototypes for almost 2 years and or last versions are on final production level. However, in order to produce them in higher quantities and at cost which are actually affordable, we need to make some toolings such as moulds.

Kickstarter allows us to get sufficient support for the product in order to get into mass production. 

Risks and challenges

We have been designing, manufacturing and testing for almost 2 years with only experienced people and experts of their fields. We are confident that our Woofloo is becoming your permanent dog toilet solution for a long time.

While we tried to make Woofloo as suitable as possible to most dogs, we can't guarantee exactly the same performance for every dog out there. If your dog has a funny/odd way of doing its business, then even Woofloo may not be able to help you.

We will provide you a training guide on how to train your dog to use Woofloo. From our experience and testing, the training is not difficult but of course it depends a lot on the trainer. How fast your dog will use Woofloo, depends on the trainer's skills as well as your dog. You can also ready more about this subject on our blog: https://www.woofloo.com/blog

We are prepared to manufacturer and ship quite a large number of Woofloo's per week. However, we do not know how popular this campaign will become and it may delay our shipping target dates.

All orders will be fulfilled in order of backing.

Please feel free to contact us with questions or suggestions. We always love to hear your ideas!
