One of my employees sent me a link to a website (yes, we do work from time to time) that sells panties and thongs for dogs. The thongs are for the boy dogs and the panties are for the girl dogs, though I think it should be the other way around. They make the panties with or without tail holes, because you wouldn’t want your tailless dogs to get a draft in their nether regions.
From the website Pants for Dogs (which is actually a cute name), we have:
They help owners control dog urination and prevent household accidents. They are perfect for travelers who want to let their dogs run worry-free in hotel rooms or in someone else’s home.
No detail has been overlooked:
- A trove of designer fabrics
- New, innovative styles
- A wide range of sizes
- Meticulous attention to fit and style
- Expertly crafted
- Soft linings prevent chaffing
- Simple and easy to use.
- Machine wash, line dry

Pants for Dogs products are fun and fashionable, and, in the case of the thong, even a little sassy. But, most importantly, they are functional.
Dogs can be dogs in our products. They can move — stretch, walk, run, play — yet comfortably sit and sleep in them.
Pants come in all sizes — from petite for the toys to XL and XXL for the bigger boys and girls.
There are several styles
- Cummerbunds for boys
- Thongs and briefs for girls
- Briefs for girls without tails
- Cummerbunds sized specifically for Italian greyhound and pug males
- Unisex jumpers without tail holes for those notorious escape artists — English bulldogs and French bulldogs
We don’t leave anyone out.
How do they work?
The classic-style cummerbunds, also known as bellybands and soakers, wrap around a dog’s belly. Owners place a human adult-incontinence pad or sanitary napkin in the band, wrap it strategically around the dog and secure. The exterior of the cummerbund is made of washable cotton; the interior is lined with a soft but firm, moisture-control fabric. When the pad is soiled, simply remove it and replace it with a fresh one.
Unlike other cummerbunds, which have elastic sides that irritate some dogs or are made in more flimsy, pliable fabrics, Pants for Dogs’ classic cummerbunds have a sturdy linings and straight sides with an extra layer of cotton trim to prevent chafing for a finished, professional look that stays in place.
The girl briefs and thongs follow the same general concept: They look like little-girl panties with (or without) holes for tails. Strategically place the pad in the panties and secure them on the dog. Simply replace the pad when it is soiled.
All I can think now is “those poor dogs” but kudos to the product development folks at Pants for Dogs who haven’t overlooked a single detail–meticulous attention to fit and style and a trove of fabrics from which to choose. This product is obviously a godsend for people with pooches having the problems cited. However, if ever I were going to put my beloved goldendoodle in a pair of panties, I’d pick a fabric that blended with her fur color. Dogs have a right to be VPL*-free too!
