Does your dog mark? Mine doesn't but I occasionally have visitors that do. Having these belly bands on hand always saves the day. If your dog does mark these allow you to bring your little fella with you and not have to deal with those embarrassing moments.
You can spend a lot of cash purchasing these on line or at your local pet store.
Or you can do like I did and make your own.
Here's what you will need:
Fabric (flannel works best but, you can also use cotton or felt)
Industrial strength Velcro
I made a trip to Joann's and picked up these cute fabrics. I found some in the fat quarters
and some on the clearance isle, Nothing to girly because these are for the boys
(Don't want to give them a complex).
Cut the fabric for the size you are making (sizes are listed below).
Fold in half lengthwise face to face.
Pin and sew leaving one end open.
Turn right side out, iron and tuck open ends inside creating an invisible seam.
Sew across the open end a couple of times.
Cut Velcro into 3" strips or 4" for Large and Extra Large sizes.
Peel and stick the Velcro like so to the belly band (inside of one end and outside of the other end).
This stuff is super sticky and may not need it but can be sewn on
All that is left to do is peel and stick a pantie liner to the inside.
The wings fold around and stick holding it secure.
After use just throw away the pantie liner and replace it.
Launder belly bands with like colors when needed, light ironing.
That was so easy, I made all of these in less than one hour.
And now I am ready to take on the pack.
Here is Bob rocking the orange one.
These will make great gifts for some of the dog owners I know.
Small - Cut fabric 16" X 8-1/2" fits 12" circumference
Medium - Cut fabric 21" X 8-1/2" fits 16" circumference
Large - Cut fabric 22" X 10" fits 18" circumference
XLarge - Cut fabric 27" X 10" fits 23" circumference
If none of these fit your dog the sizes can be easily adjusted.
Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful week!
