Italian Greyhound Belly Bands – K9 Belly Bands
One of the biggest struggles Italian Greyhound owners have is potty training the pups so we would like to introduce you to Italian Greyhound Belly Bands made by K9 Belly Bands (http://www.k9bellybands.com). What is a belly band? It is a strip of fabric that goes around the dogs waist and over his genitals that will prevent them from urinating whenever they please. K9 Belly Bands has over 160 fabric selections, makes machines washable & dryer friendly belly bands, it is made of a soft fiberfill and high quality material for maximum liquid absorption, and the wide velcro completes it for a secure fit.
For every item they make, they donate 30% back to rescue AND if you purchase your Italian Greyhound Belly Band through http://www.k9bellybands.com, you can note our rescue as the rescue of choice for a donation on your behalf so we can rescue more pups!
Recommendations: It is recommended to use half of a poise extra plus incontinent pad for maximum absorption protection for small dogs. When shopping for belly bands, you don’t want a waterproof liner – it traps the urine inside the band and up against their skin which can cause burning, fur staining, and is unsanitary. Another downside to a waterproof liner is that it holds heat in and quickly becomes uncomfortable for pups. Pairing a belly band with an incontinent pad will pull the urine away from the dogs skin, trap the odor, and maintain cleanliness.
