I want to make some dog diapers for our female dog. I've found some links online that don't work. Anyone have a pattern to share or a link that works?

Thanks Kris and Riley the pooch

You didn't say what type of craft you want to use.  If you knit or crochet, there are patterns on Ravelry for both male and female pooches in the group "PupPee Power."  I have used both patterns for my two rescues who will not be housebroken.  It takes awhile to get a perfect fit, but now I just keep churning them out so I don't have to run the washer is often.  One variation I use is to cut up maximum strength Poise pads instead of using towels/rags to soak up the urine.  The Poise pads are less likely to create "contact leakage," which is when the urine seeps into the knitted cover and leaves a mark when the dog sits.  It happens more with my male dog because it's a little harder to keep the pad centered and the little guy (16 pounds) really knows how to pee!  I tighten up the areas between the legs (female) and surrounding the pad (male) by using 2MM elastic cord woven through the outside edge.  The Poise pads have some kind of material that traps the urine even though the path has been cut.  If the cut pad gets overly filled, it will sometimes leave flakes of the lining in the knitted cover.  I've never had any trouble with it just washing down the drain.  I hope this is helpful!

No, I sure don't know how to knit or crochet. Well, I can crochet a straight line. I don't think that'll work.   Undecided  I didn't think it would be so hard to find. I'm about ready to go buy one and tear it apart for a pattern. Etsy has some cute ones, but pretty sure my husband won't let me put her in most of them. She's a TOUGH hunting dog you know. No pink allowed. I'll just put them on after he leaves.  Cheesy
