How to select the right size for your dog:
ToeGrips are sized based on nail circumference, not dog size. Measuring the nails is an important, one-time step. Improperly sized, ToeGrips may quickly fall off or migrate up the nail, causing harm. Follow these instructions to learn how to measure your dog’s nails.
Step 1: Wrap a piece of dental floss around the midshaft of the toenail.
Step 2: Hold the floss, wrapped around the nail circumference, with one hand.
Step 3: Use a Sharpie to mark across both pieces of floss. This will generate two points.
Step 4: Stretch the floss and measure the distance between the two points in millimeters.
Step 5: Repeat for all weight-bearing nails on one front and one back paw.
Step 6: Based on the measurements obtained (not the average), use the chart to select the proper size. Sometimes a dog will require a combination of two sizes.
The following chart is a GENERAL GUIDELINE, but not an accurate sizing system for every dog. Often sizes vary within the same breed.
