Pet stores sell whiskers on carpet allowing some way to reduce the amount of debris. It can be out door or by the litter box.

For this year, you will be dealing with dry dust. High ridge blocking the entire west coast for over 13 months now. No rain, no wet mud, soon no water.

"...to persons outside of San Jose, California?" -

To persons outside the San Jose region, he is not the authorized sales representative and doesn't sell and install the artificial turf.  And likely, he already knows the issues children playing on artificial grass have.  It is bad enough on the sports fields where it is installed.

LOL. Is "mud in the house" not an issue...

...to persons outside of San Jose, California?
...in the region if it is brought in by a-vector-other-than-pets?

Why do you ask?   The article refers to "pet care facilities", rather than homes.  

Mud was rarely a problem when we lived in the area, and if it was a towel by the door solved it quickly and cheaply.

Natural lawns are rarely muddy if kept maintained.  Artificial turf has edges that scratch and cut, especially if one slides on it.

Artificial turfs are for indoors, for selected sports fields, and for pretend appearances (such as for movies or TV advertisements) only.  They are not at all practical for dogs that need to relieve themselves outside.  The waste products of animals are natural fertilizers, good for natural lawns to help them grow.  The "plastic" lawns made from oil by-products coming from decayed animals does not respond well to urine or or other natural animal wastes at all.

Bio diversity and bio sustainability is much more important than living in a plastic artificial bubble.   If you want artificial turf for your lawn, you might as well live in an indoor shopping mall.

There are some synthetic grass companies that provide customers with antimicrobial agents that help fight against microbes between cleanings. Indoor areas remain cleaner because their dogs do not bring mud into their homes. If you would like to read more into it here is an article:http://www.barkleigh.com/pbd/back_issues/volume3edition2/article9.html

Thankyou for responding to our post.

Artificial turf is not the "solution", but is especially problematic with pets.  Much harder to keep clean and bacteria free too.  Not to mention, it doesn't help with reducing green house gases, but contributes to it.  And it doesn't repair itself like a natural lawn would.
