My daughter breeds mini doxies. When one is in heat, she uses a type of panty she gets at Petsmart, with a replaceable liner. It fastens with velcro, and is easy to get on and off and is cut so they can poop without taking it off. You do have to take it off for them to urinate. Rather than buy the liners at the pet store, she uses regular panty liners from Walmart. They work just as well, and are a lot cheaper.

Normal cycle is 2 - 3 weeks I believe. Never heard of it lasting as long as 6 weeks.

Wow, thanks so much for all the advice. But doesn't the diaper make her mad and try to chew it off?
That's the reason she uses the panty with velcro. It's a heavy duty fabric with elastic around the leg area, and very difficult for them to get off. They are a little expensive - think they run around $10 - $15 depending on size. She bought one, and I used it to make a pattern and sewed a couple more for her. You really need at least two pair of the panties. They are washable.

She tried the diapers once, but her dog ripped them off and made a real mess. Just depends on the dog I guess.

Are you planning on having your female spayed? Unless you are planning to breed, I highly recommend it. Not only will you not have to worry with the mess again, but it is extremely beneficial healthwise for your chi. Much less chances of some types of cancer.
