DIY Dog Diaper
There are many different methods you can choose for how to make a dog diaper. The biggest decision will be what type of material will be best suited for your needs.
Depending on which method you prefer, here are some of the supplies you may need:
Your dog won’t wear a diaper?
Weve heard of some having issues with their dogs not liking the idea of wearing a diaper. They cry or just tear it off. If thats the case for you, try out these pee pee pads
Now that you’ve learned how to create a dog diaper out of a t-shirt, it’s time to figure out this important detail: cleanup. How do you clean a used diaper soiled by your dog? Well, you have two options. If you’re too averse to the idea of reusing a soiled diaper, you can throw the t-shirt away. Of course, this defeats the purpose of a DIY reusable dog diaper.
Another option is to put it in the washing machine. For an item like this, it’s best that you wash the diaper on its own so that the waste or bodily fluid collected in the shirt doesn’t get to your clothes, towels, and blankets. It is also wise to flush any feces away down the toilet before placing the diaper in the wash.
Remember, it’s recommended that you change your dog’s diaper once a day at the very least. To prepare for this, either wash your dog’s diaper every day or create multiple dog diapers. If you’re trying to accommodate for a dog in heat, keep in mind that dogs heat up to one month. Prepare accordingly.
