Finally - no more marking! Jan 17, 2011
My lab mix has been marking occasionally over the last few years but within the last few months really started having accidents in the house. I put this on him when we received it - at first he did try to take it off, but after we told him no, he left it on. I put it on him when we leave the house. It's only been wet twice since we've used it, I actually think it's stopped him from going in the house. I do sometimes put a pad it in if we're going to be gone all day. Great product - I may buy another one to have a backup.

I LOVE these!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Feb 12, 2011
By Rose - Georgia
These belly bands are great. I have a Pomeranian that wears these when we are not home, he has anxiety when he is alone and wants to mark his territory. We do not buy the replacement pads for these, I just buy a huge bag of Kotex feminine pads for women (extra long and super absorbent) they work perfectly, change them for every use. I have three belly bands for my pup and I am going to buy one more. Note... wash these out by hand in the sink (maybe once a month or so) (the extra long pad keeps them dry and clean for a long time), the washing machine may be too ruff on them. Their not cheap but well worth it! A life saver for us!!!!!!!

Very helpful Jan 06, 2011
By Tracy Morgan
My male dog seems to enjoy marking my bed corners at night and has been randomly marking my house. I put this on him and get to relax. I must admit I put in it a woman's pad for absorbency otherwise her turns yellow. lol. It works great and he doesn't seem to mind wearing it.

My yorkies love this belly band over all the others tried. Sep 18, 2010
We walk our yorkies, they have a dogie door and an indoor "pee pad" system but I still find I need belly bands. They are great for hurricane prep when our dogs can not relieve themselves outside. They are especially helpful to prevent marking when my females are in heat. I also use them for my "little ole man", Bentley, that is 16 and can not get out the doggie door and forgets to use the "potty pad" back-up. I cut up a sanitary napkin, and insert half of in the band. The band does not have a place to hold it but if you just use the slightly adhesive on the pad, it stays in place. (use pads for med or light thickness) The belly bands can be used to deter marking,incontinence,hurrican prep and accident prevention. The smooth and flexible material is great. Velcro can be scary to a little dog but on these pads, the velcro works without a hitch. My yorkies have very long luxurious hair and these belly bands never cause matting or tangles. In my opinion, the flexible band is superior to any elastic band out there. Make sure you order the correct size because the width of the belly band relates to the circumference. They are perfect for yorkies and small dogs with similar builds. Special note: do not underestimate the determination of a male dog when a female is in heat. These bands are not enough to prevent them from mating, however... I buy preemie and newborn onsies from Walmart for about $3 and they have snaps at the crotch then I put a female diaper pant over the onesie and her halter over the onesie to prevent disloging of the females protection system. I find for yorkies, the preemie size fits best for 3 to 5 lbs and the newborn for 5 to 10 lbs. You can place a preemie diaper on your female yorkie under the preemie onesie if she is still in the bleeding phase. This system works if you really want to prevent mating and I make sure my males are wearing their belly bands too. Good Luck.

Fairly confident this will help our little leg lifter Jun 11, 2011
We rescued a miniature Schnauzer who had a few issues, one of which was the desire to scent everything he saw (including people). We started to crate train and work on potty training all over again. We are pretty diligent when Jack runs about the house that he is not lifting his leg on every corner, however, mistakes happen. The belly band allows us to be more comfortable when mistakes happen. The band wraps around Jacks waist and we put a no frills maxi pad inside the band. He's been doing really well. I would suggest that you get two bands so that when you wash a band there is always one at the ready.
This really has seemed to help Jack, he has made no move to pull it off or slip it off. It's not overly tight, we got a size medium, his waist is 15 and 1/2 inches around. It's not so loose it falls off, but it's not a snug fit either. I have heard you don't want it too snug, though, because you can hurt the dog's business.
Jack's training has been loads easier with the belly band, but remain consistent if you are trying to train a dog. The Humane Society also recommends belly bands for training. They are easily washable, air dry, velcro closure on the back.
