K9Grass by ForeverLawn Reduces Mud, Mess and Maintenance at Pet Facilities

Patent-Pending Technology Makes Indoor Grass Play Areas a Reality

ALBUQUERQUE, NM--(Marketwire - November 30, 2010) - As pet facility owners strive to offer a higher level of care, cleanliness and comfort, they are discovering that K9Grass®, the artificial grass designed specifically for dogs, is the ideal surfacing option. Developed by ForeverLawn, the leading artificial grass company, K9Grass provides unique benefits, including superior drainage, elimination of mud, and greatly improved cleanliness, all in a surface that is practically chew proof, dig proof, and able to withstand heavy traffic that dogs present.

Morris Animal Inn in Morristown, New Jersey, has been enjoying these K9Grass benefits for the past four years. Owner Walt Morris feels it just makes common sense for pet facility operators. 

"The K9Grass surface is clean and easy to maintain, is very receptive to dogs, vastly improves aesthetics, and reduces the overall cost of maintenance," Morris said. "I tell people that you can't afford not to have K9Grass, and challenge them to break down the numbers."

Outdoor pet facilities, like The Bone Adventure in Costa Mesa, Calif., benefit greatly from K9Grass. Since K9Grass eliminates mud, both the facilities and dogs stay cleaner. To further promote a cleaner, safer environment for pets, K9Grass manufactures antimicrobial agents into the grass blades.

"We converted a nursery of almost an acre of land to be the best, un-caged, attraction-filled playground for dogs," said Diane Cuniff, owner of The Bone Adventure. "K9Grass looks fantastic, reduces maintenance, and keeps the dogs and facility clean, including our bone-shaped pool and waterfall. The dogs love it."

The unique knitted construction in K9Grass increases durability, and allows liquids to drain rapidly through the grass while solid waste is easy to find and remove. 

"You simply cannot use regular artificial turf when designing a play area for dogs," said Ken Karmie, K9Grass director. "It won't hold up, and it won't stay clean. K9Grass by ForeverLawn is designed to meet the needs of dogs and their owners."

LA Dogworks, a leading pet facility in Los Angeles, Calif., offers an indoor play area covered with K9Grass. The K9Grass surface gives dogs a cushioned grassy area where they can play, and the ability to flush cleaning fluids under the grass effectively addresses the problems of liquid waste and odor.

"There are other synthetic grass products claiming to be for dogs, but there is only one K9Grass and one ForeverLawn," said Andrew Rosenthal, president of LA Dogworks. "The product features, including antimicrobial protection and the incorporation of the patent-pending flushing system, the installation, and the customer service are unmatched. If you go with anything else, you are making a mistake."
