Dog Diapers Related Questions

Dog diapers are much like diapers for human children. They are made out of a plastic exterior while the inside is made of an absorbent material. Dog diapers have a hole through which the dog’s tail can hang out. Dog diapers come in many sizes and often have an adjustable strap as to adequately fit each individual dog. Dog diapers are often used for dogs that have incontinence issues, as well as for dogs in heat, to help cut down the mess. Below are commonly asked questions about dog diapers that have been answered by Experts.

Another option that may be used instead of dog diapers is belly bands for male dogs. An owner should look into the future when deciding to use dog diapers to avoid a mess in the home when a dog is young or even middle aged, because the use of dog diapers may become a dog’s lifetime commitment. Another option is to try kennel training again.

Can dog diapers be used as a barrier to protect a female in heat from a male?

Some dog owners may use dog diapers as a barrier to keep a female dog in heat from a male dog. In some cases the male dog is able to tear off the dog diaper, making it a weak barrier. The best solution is to keep the female dog separated from the male dog until the female is no longer in heat. One way to keep the separated is the use of dog kennels.

If using dog diapers for a dog in heat, how long does a heat last and how often do they occur?

A dog’s heat with bleeding can last up to 10 days, but it can vary for each dog. Unlike humans a dog does not cycle monthly, but cycles may vary from dog to dog -- some cycling just once yearly to going into heat every three to four months. Many owners of female dogs have their dog spayed to eliminate the problem, while others choose to use dog diapers. The use of dog diapers is often to keep the mess of bleeding from being spread all over the home.
