A major concern for people with pets when it comes to synthetic turf is the smell of urine and bacterial growth. With K9 Sand, you can wave farewell to those worries. Our unique infill solution lessens the smell of urine by preventing the hydrolysis of ammonia, which is responsible for the awful odor (Figure 1).

K9 Sand prevents the growth of bacteria thanks to its bacteria-killing properties. The most amazing feature? K9 Sand achieves all of this without any synthetic additives — it's simply harvested from the ocean, cleaned, and shipped to your door, making it 100% natural.



We recognize the importance of maintaining a clean turf area for your four-legged companions. That's why our K9 Pet Turf is equipped with our exclusive patented drainage system, which offers superior drainage for rain, water, and pet urine (Figure 2).

The small voids in the Flow-Through Drainage System deter water from collecting on top of the backing, ensuring a tidy turf surface around the clock. Say goodbye to standing water and unpleasant odors with K9 Pet Turf and its impressive drainage capabilities.



It's crucial that the infill in your artificial turf is not harmful if ingested in case of accidental ingestion. With K9 Sand, you can have assurance knowing that it's non-toxic, containing no heavy metals or plastics. In fact, K9 Sand is made of calcium carbonate, which is commonly found in dietary supplements for both pets and humans alike. Your pet's well-being is our main focus, and K9 Sand meets the strictest safety standards for pet-friendly artificial turf.



Artificial turf for pets can become hot, especially during the hot weather. But with K9 Sand, you don't have to worry about your pet's feet getting painfully hot. Each particle of K9 Sand contains tiny holes that trap moisture, which is then released as the surface temperature gets hotter, providing evaporative. As a result, K9 Sand helps keep the turf's surface temperature approximately 20 degrees cooler than standard turf infill, creating a refreshing and comfortable surface for your pets to play and relax on.
