Position the disposable pads or attach one of our washable pads via the two poppers. 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 (hook and loop or poppers) to the top part of the pants. Firmly squeeze the straps 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.
