Has this ever happened to you? You are visiting a friend or relative and your little boy dog loves to visit as well so you take him along. While enjoying your visit your little boy dog gets excited and secretly, or not so secretly, finds a spot where he can mark his new territory. Even though you know that this behavior is normal for a male dog, neutered or not, it is still embarrassing and a problem you would like to solve.
We have had more than one male dog that would inappropriately mark, whether at home or while visiting a friend, and we know how frustrating it can be. Some people believe that a more rigorous training program will solve the problem; however, a dog's instinctual tendency to mark his territory is likely to override any training to the contrary.
Our solution to the problem deals with the physical aspect of "inappropriate wetting (marking)" and not the instinctual. It also provides a foolproof method for keeping the dog's pee off the floor/furniture.
Our Solution -- the UDogU WizWrap
udogu WizWraps are currently available in the following fleece patterns:
Blue Bones & Paws **NEW**
Black Solid **NEW**
Red with Black Paws
You may have heard of the "belly band", a device that fastens around a male dog's abdominal area, just ahead of his rear legs, and catches the urine when he marks. The WizWrap is applied to the dog in a similar fashion; however, the similarity ends there.
The "old fashion" belly band is often made from a material that is coarse and scratchy, and the "fabric" that collects the urine creates a messy and smelly belly band that is now ready for the laundry.
The U-Dog-U WizWrap is made of a double layer of fleece material that is soft and just stretchy enough to ensure a comfortably snug fit. Hook and loop strips provide for both adjustment and a secure fit.
An adhesive backed "bladder control pad" (your first collection pad is included with your purchase) is placed along the inside surface of the WizWrap. Put the WizWrap under your dog making sure that the "wizzer" is on the pad, fold the WizWrap over your dog's back and overlap onto the hook and loop strips. To ensure the best fit, slightly stretch the fleece as you overlap onto the hook and loop strips.
Many customers have found the U-Dog-U WizWrap to be a useful aid in "house training" a male puppy. House training any puppy, male or female, requires patience on the part of the owner and consistency in developing an acceptable pattern of behavior for the puppy. The training process usually involves an occasional "oops" on the carpetů this is where the WizWrap can be useful, at least for the male puppies. The WizWrap will catch the "mistake" and, with some puppies, may even act as a reminder not to pee where he shouldn't.
We know of several adult dogs who have learned not to mark while wearing the WizWrap. However, if he does, the urine is collected in the pad, without soiling the WizWrap. Your embarrassment is now transformed to amusement.
A solid black fleece is used to line the inside of the WizWrap and stylish red fleece with black paws is used for the outside surface. We use a "non-pilling" fleece that can be machine washed and dried.
The U-Dog-U WizWrap is available in 6 adjustable sizes, as you can see in the chart below. The proper size for your dog is determined by measuring his abdomen, in front of his rear legs.
The size of "bladder control pad" that you will use will vary by the size of the dog. The "liner" size is suitable for the Tiny Teacup and Teacup size dogs. The "light" size is typically used for the remaining larger sizes; however, the next larger size can also be used in the case of higher volumes.
|Tiny Teacup||8" - 10"||3"||$12.00|
|Teacup||10" - 12"||3"||$13.00|
|Teacup Plus||12" - 15"||4"||$14.00|
|Toy||14" - 17"||4"||$15.00|
|Small||16" - 19"||4"||$16.00|
