This is the most important page of our website for us to help your dog.
This is how to measure your dog and the information we need to custom fit your dogs' MuttKnee Brace.
Measurements A, B, and C are for your dog's harness size.
If your dog already has a harness with an attachment ring at the neck or back, those measurements are not necessary.
If your dog needs a double brace, please fill out measurements for both legs - they will probably be different.
Measurements must be in inches!!
A picture of the shape of your particular dog's leg is VERY helpful in making the MuttKnee Brace so that it fits properly when you receive it. Please email a picture of the side of your dog to Muttkneebrace@gmail.com .
We guarantee a properly fitting brace and want your dog to have a comfortable brace as soon as possible.
The video below will show how to measure your dog for the MuttKnee Brace.
The MuttKnee Brace is NOT INTENDED to be worn 24/7 but during times of activity.
Instructions: We recommend that measurements be made with a fabric tape measure and while your dog is standing.
A. Measure from neck to hip on top of your dog's back.
B. Measure around your dog's chest at the largest part.
C. Measure around your dog's neck.
D. Measure around the top of thigh just below where your dog's leg attaches to their body.
This is the measurement for the top of the brace and is an important measurement.
E. Measure across the front of your dog's knee when it is slightly bent. E is NOT on the dog picture.
This is where the brace will hold the knee in place horizontally and is a horizontal measurement
across the knee bone (patella) and should be between 1-3"inches for a medium to large dog.
F. Measure around your dog's knee when it is slightly bent. This can be a snug measurement.
G. Measure around the dog's ankle, slightly above so the brace doesn't inhibit the ankle movement
H. Measure from the top of the slightly bent knee to the thigh measurement line in the front of the leg.
I. Measure from the top of the slightly bent knee to the top of the ankle.
J. Measure from hipbone to hipbone across the dog's back.
These measurements are critical to the proper fit of your dog's brace.
If you have any questions or concerns about the measurement process, please give us a call or send an email.
