My dog is in-between measurements.
You are always better to go with the bigger size so there is more riptape overlap for waistband fastening - as long as the overall product length is still OK.
My dog has a bigger waist, but is shorter in the body.
The popper fastening products allow for a bigger waist girth. For example if you have a Westie with 19" waist girth, but need the Medium product body length, then the popper fastening product is the best choice.
My dog doesn't appear to match any of the sizes.
Consider our adjustable Smarty Pants - adjustable in 3 areas, you can choose between a riptape or poppers fastening waistband. Go to our 'Smarty Pants' page - full measurements are provided there.
You could also consider our 'Made to Measure' season pants. Please note they are available in limited fabrics, use disposable pads only, take up to 5 working days to make and are non-refundable. Go to our 'Made to Measure' page for more information.
How do I put the product on my dog?
Simply pull the tail through the hole and put the section with the disposable or reusable pad between and through the hind legs. Position the knickers so they fit comfortably, then fasten the waistband straps to the top part of the pants. Firmly pinch the riptape to make sure it’s secure. Your girl may sit initially or be curious as to what she is wearing, but should very quickly become used to them.
Please remove the pants carefully so the ripping sound doesn’t give them a fright.
Remember: you will need to regularly check to see if the reusable pad needs changed or washed. If you are using disposable pads, change for a new one when required.
