Size Guidelines for Dogs

Please use our printable sizing chart in conjunction with our weight chart below to accurately determine the correct size: Printable Sizing Chart for Dogs

When you receive the nail caps, try one on first without the glue. If it doesn't fit, trim the open end of each nail cap until they fit your dog's claws snugly OR, before altering the nail caps, send the complete package back for an exchange.

Note: Almost all of our exchanges are for a larger size, so again, if you are in between sizes, choose the larger size.
