I've had a pea gravel kennel for 14 years now, You have to get a plastic tined bedding fork, like a pitch fork with more tines and about 1/2 inch gap between them.( Got mine at tractor supply) Works like a dream just scoop under the poop pea gravel sifts right through dropping stay on the forks. Loose stools just wait until next day scoop and remove... As for the rain it washes the pea gravel to a nice clean whiteish color. Every few years lay a new top coat layer and i've never had a problem. I've even got a digger now and she'll dig it up and it will be a little dirty, just rake the hole back in with my foot stomp it down and the next rain all of the dirt washes down and you can't tell it was ever there.
do you use the weed barrier as suggested above?
