Sizing for the Front Sock When sizing your pet for the Front No-Knuckling Training Sock we ask that you reference the guides below. You will find a Top of Paw to Carpal Joint chart. Measure and use the guide to let you know which size best fits your pet€™s measurement. Then reference the recommended weight chart to see if that size corresponds with your pet€™s weight. If your pet is a different size in both charts, then go with the Top of Paw chart. We list the weight chart as a courtesy to assist pet owners with sizing. But we know every pet is made differently, so don't hesitate to contact one of our customer service representatives with any questions
