About

I just want to save all the dogs

When my wife and I adopted a 12 year old dachshund that was still recovering from her first IVDD surgery, we realized how hard it was to find quality pet products at affordable prices for pets that were differently abled. That's how my drag bags came to life! I designed a bag that took the brunt of the friction, was thin enough to keep her from getting too hot, and kept the floor clean from any accidents. Chloe has since had to have a second IVDD surgery after suffering from full paralysis on March 6, 2017, but just celebrated her 14th birthday and is happier than ever!

Next, we adopted a 12 year old dachshund in kidney failure and realized how difficult it was to find a belly band style of male dog diapers that wasn't squeezing him or uncomfortable to sleep in (and he sleeps a LOT). I bought several styles of male dog diapers before deciding to try to make my own. Not only are the bands adorable, but they're comfortable, affordable, and THEY WORK! The rescue groups we work with suggested using either a reusable bamboo absorption pad or maxi pads for the belly bands and that information has been life changing for our big boy. Rafee has an enlarged prostate due to the fact that he was not neutered until he was 12 years old, and the flexibility of the diaper has kept the pressure off of his sensitive little belly.

We know that your pet is part of your family and you want what is best for them. By deciding to give your pet the chance to heal or continue living their life in a new way, you have given them a new lease on life. Thank you for being amazing!

    Director Of Fetch

    I'm the bossiest 14 year old dachshund you'll ever meet, but I've earned that title after dominating IVDD twice. I'm obsessed with fetch and make sure mom always has something to throw for me while she's working. I'd hate for her to be bored!

  • Rafee

    Nap Coordinator

    Moms adopted me in September 2016. I may be in kidney failure and have pancreatitis, but I love life! I make sure to let mom know when it's time to call it and day and take a siesta, but I'm happy to nap all day until she's ready to snuggle.

    Master Distractor

    Moms adopted me in August 2017 and I am in charge of keeping them on their toes. From chewing random household objects to scaring them with potential potty accidents, I make sure that they get up and walk around from time to time.

  • Luna

    Employee Of The Month

    Don't let these clowns fool you, I'm the real boss. I'm always there to "help" mom by walking on her keyboard, laying on her papers, and playing with her pens. I've been employee of the month for 32 months straight. #BossLife

    Cord Chewer

    I was adopted in January 2017 and quickly developed the role of cord chewer, chewing through computer chargers, phone chargers...pretty much anything that has a cord, I've chewed through it.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

The measurement guide can be found in the listing's photos and in the item description for each item in my shop.

Care instructions

Every item in my shop is machine washable, but I suggest that you hang dry or machine dry on a low setting to prevent shrinking.

How long does it take to receive my item once I place my order?

Honestly, it depends on how many orders are ahead of you and how many items you order. I try to get orders out as quickly as possible, typically taking no more than 3 days from time of order, assuming that I receive all required measurements. Any orders that are placed with priority express shipping will automatically be moved to the front of the line and get into the mail within a day of purchase (M-F).

Custom and personalized orders

I typically fill orders Monday - Friday.

Do you offer international shipping?

Yes, I do offer international shipping to several countries. Please be aware that any applicable customs fees are the customer's responsibility.
