Spring is finally here and it is the perfect time for this fun Giveaway. Barkertime® is giving pet owners the chance to win a Drag Bag for your paralyzed or incontinent dog. One lucky pup will be awarded a colorful springtime Drag Bag so they can scoot easily around the house. Barkertime makes fashionable and functional apparel for incontinent pets.
Haven’t heard of a drag bag before?
If you aren’t sure what a drag bag (scoot bag) will do for your paralyzed dog, I can explain. Some dogs with paralysis, IVDD (Intervertebral Disc Disease), hind end weakness, and other mobility issues are very active pups. This is especially true for small dogs who learn how to scoot across the house at lightning speed. Because these dogs can’t feel the lower half of their body, they can easily injure their legs, paws and belly.
That can lead to the breakdown of their skin and the development of painful sores.
In addition, when incontinent dogs learn to scoot all over the house it is harder to prevent an accident from happening on your floor or carpet.
A drag bag is a soft sack that slips around the entire lower half of a dog’s body. It protects a disabled dog and allows them to safely and freely move around the house without accidents. It lets them stay mobile and enjoy life.
Barkertime Drag Bags
The bottom cover is made with durable water-resistant nylon material. That makes it slide easily and smoothly on carpets, any smooth surface floors, grass and snow without a crunchy crackling noise. The zipper on top makes the drag bag easy to put on and take off. The elastic allows for a custom fit around your dog’s body. The front cover of the drag bag is made with breathable fabric that is available in cute prints, so your dog can always scoot around in style.

The Drag Bag Giveaway begins on Saturday, April 1 at midnight Eastern Daylight Savings Time and ends Monday, April 10 at 5pm Eastern Daylight Savings Time. Barkertime will contact the winner directly and I will announce the name of the lucky dog.
In addition to washable diapers Barkertime makes lots of other products for incontinent pets:
· PeeJama – This is a soft body suit for dogs who are recovering from surgery. The PeeJama is a great alternative to the Elizabethan Collar (E-Collar or E-Cone). The shape of the body suit prevents dogs from biting at sutures or causing injury to themselves while they are healing.
· Pajama – This is a comfy doggie onesie that was designed to hold a diaper in place whether your dog is playing hard or curled up sleeping.
· Washable Cat Diapers – Doggie diapers are easy to find, but washable diapers that fit a cat’s body are harder to track down. Barkertime came up with this high-quality kitty diaper that is easy to use. They are great for cats who are incontinent or piddle due to paralysis or old age.
· Calming Shirt & Pressure Wrap – Paraplegic dogs can suffer from anxiety. The calming shirt allows pet parents to swaddle their dog’s body in cozy fabrics to ward away fears.
A little about the people behind Barkertime
The company started out of necessity when the founders tried to find washable diapers for their own senior dogs. They were looking for highly absorbent diapers that offered a soft fabric lining. They also wanted a product that was gentle on their dogs’ skin. Barkertime began in 2015 and has quickly grown to be a worldwide provider of every product imaginable for incontinent pets.
