In the past, we've struggled to collect urine from small or low-to-the-ground dogs. To solve that, we used Velcro to attach a metal lid to the handle of a duster (the kind with disposable cloths). It doesn't touch the dogs so they don't get scared, and it works great for collecting the urine. The lid also detaches easily for cleaning.
