Sizing for GingerLead
ensuring the best fit
Determine Support Pad Width
Measure from the front of the hind legs (in front of the penis for male dogs) towards your dogs chest to determine the support pad width.
NOTE: For barrel chested dogs (i.e. Boxers, see photo to the left.), measure just the belly area to the base of the rib cage. Downsizing is common for these dogs.
Determine the adjusting handle
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.
Still not sure?
Try the towel test.
Fold a bath towel to 19.5cm wide (a Large Female GingerLead), then sling it under her belly.
If that’s too big, then re-fold the towel to 10cm wide (a Small Female GingerLead).
If she is in between sizes, re-fold the towel to 14cm (a Large Male; also correct sizing for a Medium Female GingerLead).
If the small is too big for her, try our Mini GingerLead.
Fold a bath towel to 14cm wide (a Large Male GingerLead), then sling it under your dog’s belly in front of his penis.
If that’s too big, then re-fold the towel to 9cm wide ( a Small Male GingerLead).
If that’s too big for him, try our Mini GingerLead.
Male Dachshunds typically use the Mini GingerLead with the sling behind their penis.
