At one time or another, every dog owner will find their pup answering the call of nature in an unwanted place in your yard or garden. There are times when I’ve found my dog peeing on everything from plants, garbage, trees, and walls, to other upright, inappropriate locations. Fire hydrants are a classic, less destructive example, especially for city dogs out on a walk.
If you’ve had trouble training your dog to pee in the right spot like I have, using a doggie fire hydrant to redirect their attention may be exactly what you’re looking for.
These affordable training tools are easy to install and double as storage containers for toys and other dog-related accessories (like leashes and collars). Dogs love the color, shape, and placement of toy fire hydrants. Plus, they make an ideal spot for your dog to return to, again and again, while out walking.
While it might seem hard initially, it’s relatively easy to train your dog to pee on a fire hydrant. The next time your pup goes to the bathroom, get some of their urine on a paper towel or cloth. Then, wipe it on the new fire hydrant, and the next time they go to the bathroom, they should be attracted to it!
You may need to repeat this a few times to ensure they consistently find and follow the scent. It only took two wipe-downs for my pup to pee on the fire hydrant every time we went outside.
There are a variety of doggie fire hydrants on the market. Here are our top 6 picks for the best fire hydrants for dogs to pee on.

Or, fill it with rocks, rice, sand, beans, or other small heavy objects to keep it from falling. The hydrant is also available in grey, just in case the red is too bright for where you want to keep it.
It is only 4 x 7 inches, but you’ll feel great knowing you’re supporting a small business when you buy this product! It will also look great in your yard, no matter where you place it.
8. Sunnydaze Dog Fire Hydrant Pee Post
The Sunnydaze dog fire hydrant is a fantastic, slightly more expensive option for someone hoping to train their dog to go to the bathroom in a specific location.
It’s also one of the larger options on our list, reaching 21” in height. This may be a deal-breaker for someone interested in having a more realistic fire hydrant in their yard. You may find that the plastic, less expensive options do not have the same curb appeal as the larger, metal doggie fire hydrants.
The full dimensions of this product are 10″ W x 8.5″ D x 21.5″ H. It also weighs around three pounds. Sunnydaze offers a year-long warranty on its products.
While it looks quite heavy, it is lightweight and easy to move around the yard. But, its lighter weight does come with some cons. You may find it harder to keep in one spot without falling over, especially if you have multiple dogs running around it daily.
No matter which doggie fire hydrant you choose, you’re sure to find training your pup to pee nearby a reasonably simple business! After a few trips, your dog will know where to pee immediately and have no problem going there whenever they go outside.
Aside from the interesting curb appeal that these statues add to any yard, the fire hydrants are a far cheaper option than the long-term grass maintenance you may be faced with if your dog, like mine, tends to answer the call of nature in a new spot every time they go outside.
