Saving my sanity

Well I purchased a couple belly bands for Riley and it has saved my sanity! He's so good when he is in familiar territory. But the minute he's out of his comfort zone...he's lfting and marking! I do watch him when he's wearing one and if I see him even start to lift, I correct him. The last few times I've taken off the band, the lining was dry, so I think he's starting to get the message. At least I am not stressing now when I take the little "squirt" to a friend's house.

I completely agree - belly bands are sanity savers in other people's homes.

Riley is a cutey!

Great picture Jean! Riley is precious.

I think Mr Nico needs one of these, the last time we went to a house with an intact female, he marked the side of her crate! I could've killed him, he's been potty trained with no accidents since 6 months and then he pulls something like that! But I suppose it was hormonally related, he just wanted to let Ava know he was available I don't have the heart to tell him he won't get to be a papa like his big brother Lito!

Thanks for the idea! I just purchased some on ebay after reading your post. My guys are housebroken, but when we go to my boyfriends house, all bets are off! He does not have a doggy door, so these will really help them to learn they need to hold it at his house.

Joe, they are just fastened around the abdomen, covering the penis, to absorb any marking or urine that the male dog may discharge. Many of them are sewn in with a flannel lining for softness (and less matting on the coat), and the majority of people I know use a feminine pad inside in case there is a need for extra absorbency. (A feminine pad also reduces the need to rewash the belly band as often.)

I know one breeder that just goes out and buys mens tube socks and fastens them with a safety pin. Easy peasy.
