Review Dog Belly Bands - Do they Work?

Have you ever taken your male pooch for a walk around the neighborhood, but instead of doing the deed all at once, he just seems to be tinkling in portions all around the area? It’s like, one minute they are going on a tree, then a fire hydrant, then the mailbox… and even half an hour later, he’s still going at it!

This is what we call dog marking and one question owners often want the answer to is do belly bands stop dogs from marking but the response can be mixed.

Why Is My Dog Marking?

The first thing you need to understand about this is that your furry friend does not think of urine in the same way you do. To them, urinating is almost the equivalent of painting graffiti on a wall, at least by human standards. Whenever your dog is out and about and smells other dog’s markings, he also feels the need to mark the area.

They do this to layout boundaries and to assert their dominance. (It should also be noted that female pooches can also mark, but they do it less than males). The bigger issue here is that this can even happen at home, where your pup starts marking his territory on your furniture, chairs, carpets, etc.

It’s clear someone didn’t tell them who’s paying the bills around here, but hey, what can you do? Well, I can tell you, being angry or yelling at them won’t solve the problem. In fact, that may end up making the situation worse. At the end of the day, dog marking is a base instinct. They aren’t doing it to piss you off (no pun intended), but they are doing it because they can’t resist the need to do so.

Do belly bands stop dogs from marking

There is no definitive answer to this question as the efficacy of belly bands depends on a variety of factors, including the size and breed of the dog, how often the behavior occurs, and whether or not the band is properly fitted. However, some people believe that belly bands can help stop dogs from marking their territory.

What Is A Dog Belly Band?

It is basically a highly absorbent material wrapped around your pooch’s belly. It keeps your dog from urinating on your furniture or any other objects around the house. It doesn’t matter if your canine is marking because they are incontinent, marking their territory, or just have a bladder problem. The good thing about a belly band for dogs is that it can solve all these scenarios through one simple accessory.

The concept behind it works in that if your pooch is wearing it and starts to mark, much like a diaper on a baby, the belly band will essentially trap the urine, preventing them from leaving wet presents all-around your home. It is an effective method that deters marking because dogs naturally do not like feeling damp. Belly bands create an uncomfortable sensation that discourages them from doing it again.

These belly bands for dogs are also handy if you are traveling and visiting new places, where they may feel the need to mark their territory. It can also be an effective way to housetrain your pet. However, if you choose these bands, make sure that you take them off periodically, especially when taking them outside to urinate normally.
