Thanks for the link John!

Pet relief areas as described in the OPs mail are exactly "dog toilet". The
the discussion went everywhere :)

Maybe amenity=pet_relief_area is the better tag: it's just as descriptive
as amenity=dog_toilet, but can be expanded to indicate which animals can
use it. I think we can safely say that amenity=potty_area is the least

The only edge case I saw in the previous thread is where there isn't really
any infrastructure, it's more like a suggested area to let your animals do
their thing. But I suppose an extra tag would do there?
