Love this Belt! Little Bella is on day 20 of her first heat cycle. She has been able to play outside and enjoy life. Luke, our male, not so much. He whined and promised his first born child but neither Bella or I were having any of it. The belt helped as a training tool in that he and she learned they could not go outside to play without having the belt on. Woolite Pet Stain with odor remover kept the seat protector piece smelling great during the day. At night I washed it out and it was ready to go the next morning. Bella and I slept behind two doors and a gate. Luke mournfully slept in another bedroom behind a door. During their times together, chastity was the order of the day.
