I may have to try something similar!

Ah, I made sure to cut the edges to extend past the frame and used a spackling and a rubber mallet to stuff all the excess nicely into the sides. The weight of the rocks pushing against it actually held it in place pretty nicely but I also used sod staples and hammered then down along the edges. (To be honest the sod staples arent doing much to hold it down) I wish I thought to take pictures as i was building it.
And as far as training... hahah yea... I actually had to block the area off during the first week when he was a pup using some sheets of pegboard i had lying around the house. Hahah after I took away the pegboards he would keep trying to run off and go play. So sometimes i just stood in the middle holding the leash and let him do circles around me. Once his potty scent was already there I think he just sort've figured it out on his own. He's great about staying in the box now. Just does circles inside of it until he finds a nice spot to hunker down in. At 12 weeks he literaly treats it like his toilet. Doesn't even attempt to pee or poo outside of his 'restroom'. Hope this helps!

Great idea. I really like it. I'm wondering how you anchored the insect screen. Also, any special training methods to keep him in his potty area until he goes?
Thanks for sharing. I might just do this myself.

Now, I just need you to make one of those at my house.

König's Potty Area!! :D
Made a little potty area for the pup. He rings the bells to go outside. Hasnt had an accident in over a month, so I'd say im in the clear? *fingers crossed/knock on wood*.
-Just used some 2x6's and nailed them together and burried them about two inches in the ground.
-Dug out some of the dirt from the center
-Laid down some weed blocker
-Poured in a few bags of small rocks
-Laid down more weed blocker on top
-Poured in large rocks over that
[then when we first started potty training.. he would just sit there and chew rocks...]
-So i then put pet-grade insect screen over the tops and anchored them down. --Then decorated so he feels at home when going potty
Drains really well, a little circle is all thats left when he goes potty. Poo doesnt really stick to it, and i just spray it down with water a couple times a day as it gets soiled. So far no stink or anything either.
He was a bit camera shy! haha
