Proposal

Use amenity=dog_toilet for areas designated for dogs to urinate and excrete. Unlike dog_park label, the main objective of the area is not that dogs play. It is usually a small and fenced area, but can also just be a designated patch of grass by the side of the road. It is known as pee-can in some countries.

This proposal has quite a long history. Previous discussion was inconclusive. Initially it proposed several alternatives at the same time. We're now going with amenity=dog_toilet.

Rationale

Some cities are full of these objects, so we need this tag to be able to map them. amenity=dog_toilet is the least complex way to map them and is easy to understand. There is little need for being inclusive of other pets, as almost all "pet" toilets are advertised exclusively to dogs. Other types of pet toilets can get their own tag if need be.
