Top Paw Washable Cover-Ups
Could be better
I have used these for two of my dogs now; they had to go through one heat before having them spayed. The medium was too small and the large was too big for one of my dogs. Neither size would stay on. I'm using it again for another dog, and it just doesn't fit right. It's not long enough and slides down her back.
I also do not understand why these have to be bright pink and purple. A more basic color, such as black or brown, would look better on a dog and make it less conspicuous.
For the price, it would be nice to have a product that looks and works better. It would also be nice if Pet Smart offered more than once choice of product.

Purchased these to try to be more economically and financially friendly after using the disposable diapers.
These diaper covers are not really absorbent on their own - they are meant to be used with incontinence pads.
These covers are soft and flexible and our female GSD has never minded wearing them. The only issue we really have is with the velcro. The soft side of the velcro goes along the outside of the diaper over the dog's back. The rough side of the velcro is located at the ends of the straps. We had to put the diaper at its smallest size with the straps in order for it to fit our 65 pound girl. But as a result the sides of the diaper would wiggle loose since they were not held in place, resulting in a baggy diaper. I understand that adding more "rough" velcro could result in chafing and fur getting stuck, so I am not seeking that solution. I personally would recommend attaching more velcro yourself (the consumer) as appropriate to your dog's size, or using a safety pin on each side to hold the diaper together better.
Even though I liked these, I didn't like them enough to buy more, because of the incontinence pads required (both human pad and dog, we tried them both) were not effective.

Top dog washable coverups
My 8 month corgi went into heat. Went to pet smart to purchase so she could be in the house without making a mess. They will not stay on her. We are constantly putting them back on. Feel like I just wasted $20.00.

Used these for a female dog in heat
Ordered these on line came in timely fashion. I had moved to Montana and not a pet smart in the area. I had used these before in Ohio. These worked great. We used the size large for a year old female German Shepard dog in heat. Easy to take on and off, have a hole for the tale. Wash easily.
