Tips for Using A Doggie Diaper or Belly Band
Generally, dog trainers recommend diapers only for incontinent dogs or dogs in heat and not for housetraining. I think trainers are worried that people will use the diaper as a crutch and end up not successfully housetraining the dog at all, which is a valid concern. However, a dog diaper can be a helpful aid if used as part of a complete housetraining program for certain dogs.Is your dog a good candidate for housetraining using a dog diaper?Is your dog mostly housetrained? The diaper is useful towards the end of the housetraining process when your dog readily goes potty outside and only has less than one accident a day.Is your dog easy going about wearing things and being handled? This method works best for dogs that are calm about being handled and won't mind wearing the diaper. If you don't think this is your dog, you might as well skip it and stick with the traditional housetraining method. For boy dogs that just have pee accidents, the Male Wrap can be a perfect version of the diaper as it is easier to put on and take off.
First, find a good-fitting and comfortable dog diaper.
Next, it is important to teach the dog that wearing the diaper is a good thing so that he or she is not frightened by the process or become upset when you approach. Do this by taking it slow with your dog and using lots of treats during the process of putting the diaper on. A second person can be helpful at first to feed the treats while you position the diaper. If your dog tries to wiggle out of the diaper once it is on, try to interrupt, and then reward him or her for calmness. If your dog really dislikes the diaper it may just not be worth it since you will be able to housetrain your dog just fine using the basic housetraining protocol without the diaper.The time to begin using the diaper on your dog is when you are almost 100% sure that your dog won't have an accident in the house.
The diaper is helpful in the following ways:
If your dog has an accident in the diaper it means that you need to:
- Prevents floor, carpet and furniture clean-up (it can be difficult to remove all lingering odor which can hold back housetraining).
- Lets you know for sure that your dog has had an accident and that you need to give him or her less freedom.
- Makes going potty in the house somewhat uncomfortable for your dog which can help discourage him from "going" in the house.
- Helpful and courteous to use when visiting as dogs are often more likely to have accidents at a new place. (It is also important to remember to give your dog less freedom at a new place.)
- Give your dog less freedom in the house. Do this by using a crate, tether (only when you are home), exercise pen or by gating them in a smaller area.
- Take your dog outside more often for potty breaks (up to once an hour during the day).Reward with a extra tasty treat for going potty outside.If the accident is happening by the door, you can help your dog learn to signal to you when he or she wants to go out by teaching them to use a bell.
- Clean the diaper and also w ash and dry the dog to prevent a rash. A second diaper can be helpful when waiting for the first to be clean again.
