Measuring and Sizing

How to measure for your Walkin’ Ski Attachment

*Ski attachments are not available for the walkin’ wheels mini’s at this time

FOFThe Fold of Flank (FOF)

To measure the height of your pet for our Walkin Wheels, measure from the ground to the “Fold of the Flank” as shown here. The FOF is a thin piece of skin that connects the dog’s upper rear leg to his body. Look at the webbing between your thumb and index finger. This skin is very similar to the FOF.

Overweight pets:

If your dog is overweight, then the fold of flank will probably hang down from his body, making the fold of flank measurement shorter than it really is. You will need to try and move the flank up to a normal position, to get an accurate measurement. The picture of the Boxer below shows a normal fold of flank for a dog that is not overweight.

Long Haired Pets
If you have a long-haired dog, you can locate the fold of the flank by pushing the hair back and feeling for the fold of flank skin.

 


Tips:

  • If your dog can stand, use a metal retractable tape measure or yardstick, place it in front of his rear foot/toes and measure straight up to the bottom edge of fold of the flank.
  • Do NOT stretch the dog’s leg and foot out as this will add several inches to the fold of flank and give you an inaccurate measurement.

If you are unsure about how to measure, please call us (778-809-7421) before placing your order and we would be happy to assist you, as…

  • We do need the fold of flank (FOF) measurement to be as accurate as possible as that is how we determine the size of the wheels and struts your dog will need for his wheelchair.
  • If your measurement is not accurate, you may need to exchange the wheels or struts at your expense. They do snap in and can be easily changed.

If your dog cannot stand:

If your dog cannot stand, you can measure the fold of the flank when he is lying on his side. In order to get an accurate measurement, position the dog’s rear leg in a normal standing position: knee joint and hock joint will be slightly bent. Bend the dog’s foot at his ankle (like it would be if he was standing on his foot). In this picture the yardstick shows a FOF of 18 inches.

Do NOT stretch the dog’s leg and foot out as this will add several inches to the fold of flank and give you an inaccurate measurement.
