Why do you need dog diapers?
After surgery, when the pet moves with difficulty
Very often, a weakened animal can not only go outside, but even control the process of urination. Of course, some dogs are accustomed to a tray or a diaper. But, if this is not the case, diapers for dogs will come to the rescue.
Older dogs often suffer from incontinence, which causes discomfort not only to the owners, but also to the animals themselves: they understand that this should not be done, and feel guilty. To avoid psychological trauma of the pet and keep the apartment clean, you can use diapers.
Traveling with a pet
Not all dogs can go to the tray during travel and long journeys. In addition, they do not always have such an opportunity. A good alternative in this case would be a diaper.
A dog in heat can stain furniture and textiles in the house. Therefore, during heavy discharge, it is recommended to use diapers.
Buying them is quite simple – diapers are sold at any veterinary pharmacy or pet store. However, you should not immediately take the whole package – for starters, it is better to take 2-3 pieces for a sample.
It is important not only to accustom the dog to a diaper, but also to determine the size.
Extra small – diapers for dogs of small breeds weighing from 1,5 to 4 kg. The smallest diapers will do yorkshire terriers, pomeranian spitz, toy terriers, chihuahua, etc.
Small are diapers for dogs weighing from 3 to 6 kg – for example, for pugs, pinscher, poodles, etc.
Medium are designed for larger animals weighing from 5 to 10 kg. These include french bulldogs, Jack Russell Terriers, etc.
Large is suitable for dogs weighing from 8 to 16 kg – for example, i’m sorry welsh corgi, etc.
Extra large are designed for pets weighing from 15 to 30 kg. They fit, for example, Border Collie, Clumber Spaniels, Huskies, etc.
Extra extra large are the largest diapers for large dogs weighing over 30 kg. These include shepherds, husky, Golden retriever, labrador and many others.
You can also make a diaper for a dog yourself from a baby diaper, for this you just need to cut a hole for the tail. If there is a lot of space left, the diaper can be reshaped a little, fitting it to the desired size.
How to teach a dog to a diaper?
If your pet wears clothes, diaper training is usually easy. Usually dogs react calmly to this hygiene product.
If such an accessory is a curiosity for a pet, then you will have to be patient. A restless dog will most likely try to take off this incomprehensible product at the first opportunity.
Šta da tražim?
While you put the diaper on the dog, distract him, talk to him, pet him;
After that, be sure to start an active and fun game in order to distract the pet from the new accessory;
