Snow keeps falling around much of the country, but here's a product that can prove useful whether your surroundings include snow, grass, or sand. Back when we talked about wintry bathroom breaks that some pets would prefer to avoid, I spotted this item mentioned in the comments (thanks, flyingroo).

Pups with problems deciding where to go, meet Potty Rock ($15). Since it's used for potty training, the stone has a special odor that makes dogs want to go. This means not only can you help fight urine spots and protect the lawn, you can also help a pet hone in on one spot by just clearing that area away and placing it there. Sounds like a win-win for your pets and your plants, too.
