The brace has arrived! The spinal strap seems a bit lop-sided?
Yes the spinal strap should go along you dog's ridge. Play around and adjust the front straps, perhaps start with the back one and then correct the front.
Customer Question Two:
The Orthodog diagram says measure height from paw to lower back, and this looks like a straight line on the diagram so if I place a ruler on his lower back and point it against the wall, is that the right height then if I measure straight down the wall from the ruler?
Yes you are completely right! Use the wall - place a ruler on his lower back and point it against the wall,. then measure straight down the wall from the ruler. That would be perfect.
