How they work? Glenndarcy waterproof fabric female adjustable Smarty dog pants help keep mess off your furniture and carpets during your dog's season and can also be used for girls who have developed urine incontinence. Using colour coded popper technology, this product can be adjusted in the tail section, waist and body length.
Product sizes are detailed in the 'Measurement Guide'. Compare your dog's measurements and order the closest size.
Washable pad sizes are detailed in the 'Washable Pads Sizing Guidelines' on the separate washable pad pages. Two waterproof base washable pads can be purchased with the Smarty pants - for more waterproof base washable pads, go to our washable pads pages.
Disposable pads can be used if you prefer - consider pantyliners or incontinence pads which can be stuck in position - supermarket brands work very well.
Important - washable and disposable pads need to be regularly checked to see if they need washed or changed.
Laundry: Machine washable 30C, non-bio detergent, no fabric softener, tumble dry low, do not iron. For extra cleaning/ odour control try Dettol Laundry Cleanser which kills 99% of bacteria.

How to fit
Simply pull your dog's tail through the tailhole and put the section with the disposable or washable pad between and through the hind legs. Position the knickers so they fit comfortably, then fasten the waistband straps to the top part of the pants. Firmly pinch the hook and loop tabs to make sure they're secure. Your girl may sit initially or be curious as to what she is wearing, but should very quickly become used to them.
1. Waistband adjustment
Fasten the strap so it is secure and comfortable - the strap can overlap to go bigger or smaller.
2. Tailhole adjustment
On the inside of this product there is a piece of fabric you can position at the top or bottom of the tailhole, depending on whether your dog has a high or low tail position. If your dog has a very bushy tail, you may wish to remove this piece.
Once adjusted, place your dog’s tail through the tailhole.
3. Body Length adjustment -
Once you have adjusted the tailhole and strap, check the section that contains the pad which goes between the legs. If it is baggy or tight, you can adjust this section too.
Simply take the product off and change the length by adjusting the green poppers on the strap and lower body section. Below shows the longest to shortest settings.
