I like the product however on a small it said up to 18 inches. NOPE! I measured my pup and he measured 13 inches. The bands just barely fit him. I also think the velcro is very strong and since I have so much exposed I plan to stick a piece of fabric or something to the exposed area so he doesn't roll around and snag stuff in the house. They work fine but there is that whole sizing thing. My instinct was to get a medium for my mid sized hound but since the inches were stated I felt they should be accurate. So they will be used but don't trust the stated measurements on the sizing. I would recommend them still but just be wary of sizing.
First a warning: the velcro is STRONG. If it latches onto your clothes or anything else, be careful because it will pull the fibers if you move too fast. The wrap works well if you adjust it properly. It's been hit or miss with me because sometimes I take it off and my puppy has urinated in it (or held it) and he's dry and clean. Other times I take it off, and the urine has not been absorbed, instead, he has a damp foul-smelling underbelly and the wrap is wet all over rather than just where he is meant to mark. It's nasty and I have to wipe him down before letting him run around on my carpet or try to play with me. I'm not sure if he's doing anything to mess it up once it's on him, but using it has yielded mixed results. Really, I'd give this three and a half stars, but perhaps I'm just using the wrap wrong.
I got the extra small for my 8lb senior chorkie and they're snug but they fit comfortably. The material is durable and absorbent. They've held up after putting them in the washer at least once and letting them air dry - but time will tell how long they last. Overall, I would recommend.
My yorkipoo has a lot of issues with marking, especially when I’m not home. I work long hours so crating didn’t seem fair to him and my other dog. Belly bands have been the perfect solution. They get free reign of the house and I don’t have to clean up any messes when I get home from work. They’re stretchy but don’t come off easy, and the dogs seem to have complete range of motion in them. I also like that they collect and absorb the urine so that if they do pee in them, it’s not sitting against their fur all day.
The reason for the four stars is that I cannot find a brand that has a size to fit my dog. He is between the medium and large. I do like these due to the gathering on the sides which helps a great deal.
A life and house saver, however at times, once washed there is a sort of mildew like spots left in the band. I keep having to discard every so often.
Paw Inspired Belly bands work great! I bought a dog that was marking in the house. No more stress for me now!
I was looking for something to keep my male dog from marking his territory, basically anything associated with me. This has saved both my hardwood floors and my carpet. I'm going to buy two more sets!
These worked out great. They wash up very well and last a long time.
Bear love his new belly bands. He wears them most of the time and the prevent accidents! Easily washed too.
