Washable Dog Diapers - Perfect for the Leaking Senior Dog
As dogs age, they sometimes don't get much notice to go "potty".
There are grasses you can have for indoor use when they get caught short, but what happens in the car? or visiting others? If your senior or older dog simply lets his/her bladder go from excitement or simply cannot hold it like they used to, then using reusable dog diapers could be the answer to a cleaner car and house and quality time with your pooch.
The above picture links are for male dogs. They are absorbent and fit like a band around their middle. You can get them in the size that is right for your dog. Easy to put on and take off, they can give you that peace of mind when it comes to them having accidents.
Totally washable, which saves you money in the long run and the saves on the landfill. Environmentally friendly. You get a pack of 3 in the above product. It all depends on how much control your dog has. Some lose control sneezing just like us humans sometimes! If your dog loses control a lot then it might be best to invest in a few packs.
Once you find the right size for your female dog, you can see in the picture, they fit quite well. Make sure you get the right size to fit their tail through.
No more worries of your female dog squatting in places they shouldn't. As my dog got older she began to lose control more and more with things like thunderstorms, and loud noises. She would run through the house leaving a trail of pee.
As much as I love my dog, it is not something we want to continue cleaning up and wondering when the next accident will be. They don't feel good about it either. It doesn't take long at all for them to get used to the diaper.
Using Positive Enforcement Worked For My Dog Your dog may try and bite at the diaper, but if you get one that fits snugly, and then make a special deal out of it by brushing them, petting them, and a treat, it then becomes a positive process. It may take a little bit of patience, but if the diaper is well fitted and not chaffing them, they will forget it is there.
Do something they super enjoy while fitting it on. The first few times will be new to them, so be patient, but persevere.
How to Make Your Own Dog Diapers If you don't have any reusable ones, or you simply want something more disposable, you can actually use baby diapers with a few adjustments. Check this video out below:
As this lady was saying in the video... you don't have much time to let your dog out when they ask, especially if they are older, they simply cannot hold their pee for very long. I thought this was a pretty ingenious idea with the disposable diaper, sock and safety pin!
Keeping your Senior Dog Comfy This is the name of the game as they get older. They may be senior pooches, but they are still a part of the family and as long as we can make their senior years comfy they will still be happy and tail wagging to spend time with us. Just because they lose some urine, doesn't mean they are done yet!! If you are finding pee puddles, then consider using reusable dog diapers to keep things clean and to enjoy your pooch. They can be washed over and over again, and after the initial investment (you can get a set of 3 for under 20 bucks!) there is not excess garbage to put out.
