Many pet owners search for dog belly bands even if they don’t know what they are. They simply type in dog diapers or diapers for dogs, not realizing belly bands are what people use for their male dogs to keep them from having accidents in the home. Actual pet diapers are used for female dogs.
Belly bands are designed to wrap around a dog, covering his private parts. Like a diaper, it doesn’t prevent your dog from having accidents, but it does protect your carpet and your belongings. It’s also not something to be worn all the time. This is why you should put them on when they enter your home, but take them off outside. It can be one way to help them to learn to be housebroken.
Belly bands aren’t just for puppies; they are also helpful for older dogs that have become incontinent. You don’t want to penalize your older pet simply because they can’t control themselves anymore. With a belly band they can still roam freely in your house.
Belly bands are often made of sturdy cloth that will absorb urine. Some pet owners put feminine pads or incontinence pads inside to help. Either way, belly bands are machine washable so they are easy to keep clean. It’s a good idea to have at least two bands for your dog to wear so that while one is being cleaned your pet can wear the other.
It’s easy to put a belly band on as they usually are fastened by Velcro. You can easily put them on and off depending on where your dog is going to be.
If belly bands are functional they can also be fashionable. At Sassy Pup we have designs of all types including those with monkeys and teddy bears. We also have humorous ones and bands created by top designers. Just because they function as a diaper doesn’t mean they have to be blah.
