So, do dog diapers work? In this blog we reveal what dog diapers are, how they are used and how effective they are for use in potty training and other scenarios.
Avoiding little accidents on your furniture or carpets can be one of the biggest challenges of being a dog owner. Whether your pup is still in the potty training phase, you have a senior dog prone to toileting difficulties, your female pooch is in heat, or there’s another reason why your dog might need a little helping hand in the hygiene department, dog diapers are a great solution to keep both your dog and house mess-free.
But putting a diaper on a dog…how does that work, exactly? In this blog we answer all the need to know questions regarding dog diapers, including what they’re used for and how they could benefit your pup. Basically, we’ve done the research so you don’t have to!
What are dog diapers used for?
Dog diapers work pretty much in the same way as they do for human babies. They are a pair of either disposable or reusable underwear containing absorbent materials, designed to catch urination or fecal matter, or bloody discharge for dogs in heat, and keep it contained until the diaper is changed.
There are several reasons why your dog might require the use of a dog diaper, including:
Pottytraining - a right of passage for every pup; a dog diaper can help when they’re unable to reach their pee pad in time
Emotionalurination - a saving grace for more nervous pups Incontinence - a great choice for keeping senior dogs or dogs with medical requirements & disabilities secure and comfy
Surgeryrecovery - an effective protection to keep your little buddy safe and comfortable post-op
Femaledogsin heat - peace of mind for you and comfort for your sweet girl as she goes through heat, catching and minimizing any mess
Are dog diapers good for potty training?
Dog diapers are a great solution for catching your little one’s accidents. Sometimes the toilet can seem too far away for their little legs and your puppy might get caught short.
Pairing a dog diaper with traditional pad training is the perfect combination to reduce the risk of mess or leakages. Your puppy pal learns the ropes whilst not relying on the diaper, and your home is saved from drips and dribbles along the way!
How to properly put a diaper on a dog
There are different styles of dog diaper to suit the shape, size and needs of your dog, all of which will sit slightly differently.
At Potty Buddy we offer a standard diaper which can be paired with a belly band for male dogs (to assist with potty training, marking or incontinence), as well as skirt diapers which are particularly effective for female dogs in heat.
It’s important to measure your dog against the diaper sizing charts to ensure a comfortable and suitable fit.
How long can a dog stay in a diaper?
Here at Potty Buddy our dog diapers are 3x more absorbent than average diapers, meaning your dog will be less prone to rashes and discomfort.
That said, it’s still important to keep an eye on the frequency of your dog’s need to relieve themselves. This is to ensure the diaper does not become too full or uncomfortable for your dog.
We would recommend changing your dog’s diaper every 3-4 hours, and more often if required.
