HOW TO MEASURE
– Support Pad Width –
Measure from the front of the hind legs (in front of the penis for male dogs) to the base of your dog’s chest to determine the support pad width. TIP: A sheet or bath towel can be folded to the various pad widths to determine the best fit for your dog. See product images for sizing chart.
– Adjusting Dimensions –
Measure starting where the handle of the GingerLead will rest in your hand (while you are standing upright), continue under your dog’s belly, up the other side, then back to your hand completing the loop. If it measures 37″ or less, the Tall size should be considered.
