A new study found that people are less likely to open diapers when their dog’s diaper is not tightly packed.
That could be because they’re concerned about their dog getting tangled up, or that it could be a result of a condition that causes dogs to chew through cloth diapers more easily.
The research was conducted by researchers at the University of Washington and Oregon State University.
Researchers also found that when dogs have an opening that is too large, their paws can’t easily grasp it.
The researchers used a dog-friendly diaper that had been specifically designed to help dogs open their diapers.
“I was surprised at how little they were actually trying to get their paws out of the diapers,” said senior author Kristina Vella, who is a research assistant professor of veterinary medicine at the UW.
“We’ve seen it with diapers before, and we know that when we’re dealing with diapers in our dog’s environment, we tend to see more complaints than we should.”
Vella and her colleagues wanted to find out how often people would open a diaper when they were not certain it was a good idea.
They surveyed 1,300 adults and found that almost half of those people opened their diapers when they weren’t sure the diaper was appropriate for their dog.
The other half opened them more often.
In a second study, Vella’s team followed 1,500 people who were given the same diapers and asked them to open them when they could not.
They found that about one-third of those respondents opened their diaper when there was a high likelihood that it was inappropriate for the dog.
People who opened their own diapers more often also tended to report having a better experience with their dog, according to the study.
“These findings suggest that it may be possible to help alleviate some of the frustration dogs may have about opening their own diaper,” the researchers wrote.
Vella noted that the study only included people who said they opened their dogs diapers regularly.
It doesn’t prove that a dog’s diapers are too large or that the person shouldn’t open one if he or she doesn’t want to mess up their dog for a long time.
But, she said, the findings are important because “they are consistent with the experience of many people who have tried to open their own dogs diapers and have found that opening a diaper is difficult and stressful for them.”
