Belly Band For All Size Dogs Crochet Pattern | Posh Pooch Designs

Stop Your Pooches From Marking, in Style!
Belly Band  Crochet Pattern For Any
 and All Size Dogs
This Pattern is completely adjustable 
for any dog, big or small.
It works great to get that little pooch,
 or Big pooch, to stop marking your furniture.
 My design is made out of Acrylic yarn, but can be
 made out of cotton yarn, as well.
 I prefer the Acrylic yarn, because the Cotton yarn absorbs
 the smell and it is harder to get out.
My design is unique in that I use mini
 pads to absorb the "marking".
The size will depend on the size of your dog.
And The design has a cute stripe that looks 
like Hounds tooth through the center.
