Our lovely, old West Highland White Terrier, Dougal celebrated his 17th birthday last month. He's still a spritely old thing, but his hearing and sight are not what they used to be.
Unfortunately nor is his bladder control! He's not incontinent, but a little dribbler - I understand it happens to the best of old men!!
The dog nappies have been great! I followed the instructions to put it on him at first with a treat, so that the association with something nice was made early on.
I have to admit I was worried that he would try to get it off, but he seemed to actually like it!
Now he stands still while I put on his 'trousers' and doesn't seem to be aware of being 'nappied'!
A short word of warning to new users: I once let Dougal out in the garden and forgot to take his nappy off!
As I saw him trundle down the garden path, I realised too late! He consequenly had cocked his leg (the way Westies do) and spent a penny in his nappy!
This illustrates to me that he is not aware of wearing one.
Fortunately, they wash perfectly well in the washing machine - so buy two sets the first time.
The dog nappy has made our lives so much easier and now everyone is happy - including my husband who was getting rather fed up with mopping the Amtico floor. I would recommend to anyone who has this problem, to try them
