what are belly bands?

Used on male dogs that are marking A LOT, peeing on other dogs or peeing into the mop bucket all the time lol

The dog must be allowed relieve themselves at regular intervals when using one.

They're like a piece of fabric that you put around a male dog's middle area to stop them from peeing/marking furniture etc.. They are usually fitted with an absorbent pad and are frequently used for dogs who have lost control of their bladder.

Tara- take a look at this: http://www.howtodothings.com/pets-and-animals/how-to-make-belly-bands-for-dogs

I met a lady at the vet's a few months ago and have bumped into her a couple of times since that and her dog Scamp was wearing a belly-band, he is incontinent due to old age. She wrote down the name of the above web-site for me she said she uses it to find out loads of things. She made the bands herself, said it was fool-proof and they cost her around one euro each including the pads.

Well you learn something new every day on this site, I had never heard of belly bands.

I found a great ebay merchant in the US who sells cute belly bands 5 for $15. What a deal. She'd probably ship to the UK & Ireland. Tara, if you're interested, PM me and I'll see if I can find her ebay shop.

this is a lady who produces belly bands for dogs {and pants for bitches!} and all the money raised is used to support a rescue.

They do ship to the UK too.

Wonderful for peace of mind when you go visiting or stop at hotels.
Most dogs will be tempted to mark when they first go into somewhere strange. It means you don't need to worry while the dog gets used to his new surroundings.
