How do Dog Belly Bands work?


Prevent Your Dog from Wetting

Many owners who can’t watch their dogs every minute use belly bands as a housebreaking aid to help control urine marking. Training dogs not to wet in the house takes effort. Belly bands comfortably wrap around your dog’s belly and a sanitary maxi pad is placed in the bottom of the band. Dogs that try to mark in the house find that their urine is absorbed by the maxi pad. Carpet and furniture remain clean, and dogs can’t leave their scent.

Why is it Important to Prevent Marking

Every time a dog wets in the house, it reinforces his habit to do so. If dogs cannot leave their urine scent, it eliminates those soiled areas that would attract them to re-wet. Dogs dislike wetting in a diaper wrap. Belly bands serve as a constant reminder to your dog not to wet in the house. Many dogs are reliably housebroken with the use of belly bands. For those persistent wetters, these bands help to keep homes smelling fresh and urine-free.

Should My Dog have Run of the House?

A dog that isn’t house trained should not have unsupervised run of the house. When your dog is unsupervised, he will probably mark carpet and furniture while you are away. Eventually, it could be very difficult to reliably housebreak your pet.

Should Belly Bands be Used When I Am Away?

Ideally, when you are not home you should keep your dog in one room that has an easy-to-clean flooring such as tile. Child gates or puppy gates can be used to block off the entrance to the rest of the house. We don’t recommend that you leave a belly band on your dog if you are not a home to change the disposable pad when wet. We recommend the use of potty pads of doggy doors during that time.
