How to stop your dog ruining your furniture and floors because of urine marking inside the house
A Belly Band will not stop your dog from urine marking it's territory inside your house but it will save your furniture, carpets and floors from the damage of dog urine.
A Belly Band is a physical barrier between your male dog's urine and your furniture, walls, carpets and beds etc.
Belly Bands will also save you a lot
of the frustration of cleaning up dog urine odors.
What are Belly Bands made of?
Belly Bands are made of a thick absorbent type of fabric, such as flannelette. They are wrapped around the dog and fastened by means of a velcro strip sewn at each end of the wrap. Usually a good fitting belly wrap requires no elastic and will stay in place quite well.
You can also use a self adhesive feminine pad or a incontinence pad inside the belly band. These will hold more urine than the belly band alone, and you won’t have to launder as often. Belly bands should be machine washable and reused as needed.
Where do I get a Belly Band?
If you are handy at sewing you can make your own belly band. All you need are your dog's measurements around his tummy area, some flannel fabric and some wide velcro strips.
For ready made belly bands search for them on Google. They are also available on e-bay, usually listed under dog clothing.
