Dog diapers always falling off?
Does your furbaby have to rock his or her stylish dog diapers?
Whether it be for potty training, heat, a leaky bladder or a post operation cover up, dog diapers will be your best solution in keeping your furry friend comfortable and your home clean. But just when you thought you purchased the good fit, occasionally you can find yourself struggling with dog diapers that just don't stay in place!
In order to help you solve this annoying dog diaper problem, here are some tips and tricks to make your sometimes stressful pet parent life easier, by keeping those diapers on!
Always Make Sure the Dog Diaper Fits
For it not to fall off, the dog diaper should fit your dog properly (obviously!). For clear reasons, if the diaper is too big, it will fall off. And if it’s too small, your dog will feel uncomfortable and he’ll want to take it off, and most likely start figuring out ways how to, which can always be an interesting situation. A diaper that’s too tight will cause a diaper rash or gashes from digging into your poor furbaby's skin. Be mindful of this by making sure that even if it 'fits' that it isn't too tight!
This is mentioned first simply because this is the MOST important. Depending on the brand of your chosen dog diaper, every brand has different measurements. So you should definitely get the right measurement of your dog’s waist using a measuring tape and don’t just guess and estimate. Take your time and accurately measure around his waist, keeping the tape measure as snug as you will want the diaper to be so you order the correct size.
Try out Several Brands Until You Find the Right One
There are a gazillion choices of dog diapers in the market! But that doesn't mean they are all great choices and that they all will solve your problems efficiently and successfully. You have to make sure that you do your research and go through the trial-and-error processes to find the perfect diaper that will suit your precious furbaby's needs at best. Based off of this, you can then decide which one to use: full diapers, belly bands, modified ones from infant diapers, or whatever else may be out there.
Pet Parents® Dog Diapers are made for comfort and absorbency. With a waterproof outer shell, elastic leg and tail bands, and an adjustable hook and loop fastener for sizing, these premium dog diapers will provide a comfortable fit that will stay secure.
TIP: Always look for dog diapers that have high absorbance with no "crinkly" texture that causes your dogs to dislike wearing it, also be sure to have velcro closures that are quick and easy to secure and won't stick to your pet’s fur.
Regularly Change your Dog’s Diapers
You should keep this in mind that you have to change your dog’s diapers every 3 or 4 hours. Just as it is for a human baby, once the diaper is soiled, it will make your dog uncomfy and he’ll scratch it and pull it and will do everything in the world to take them off, which as you can imagine this could possibly result in an injury. You surely wouldn't want to sit in a dirty diaper, so make sure your furbaby doesn't either!
Protect Any Velcro Connections from Damage
If the connectors on a diaper don't stick well, then it will loosen up causing the diaper to fall off. To avoid this, make sure to properly attach your Velcro connections at all times, always making sure they are tightly secured.
As much as possible, try not to wet the Velcro, aside from washing. Make sure to follow washing instructions. A washing tip is to always be sure to keep the diaper velcro'd shut to avoid wear and tear on it, making it less functional. Pet Parents® Dog Diapers use fur-safe industrial strength hook and loop fasteners, so you do not have to worry about them losing their stickiness.
Seek Help to Secure Those Dog Diapers
Some dogs take some time to get used to wearing diapers, as they do with any sort of change. No matter how great the fit is, they sometimes get real sassy (which we all know they can be really great at when it comes to getting their way) and will do a really great job of schooching out of them. In these cases, it is important to make sure you also put something that your dog can’t just easily remove.
Also consider slowly introducing your furbaby to them, by simply placing the diaper on him for short periods of time throughout the day, frequently taking it on and off so he gets used to the process.
For some, having your dog get used to diapers is a long-term process. You just have to be patient and make sure that the dog diaper you decide to purchase fits your dog right, has no uncomfortable surface and is highly absorbent, to create a happy, clean, stress-free environment in your home!
