Lightweight plastic running/ racing muzzles allow your dog to pant freely due to their depth and open basket design making them the first choice for off lead running and activities such as canicross, bikejor and lure coursing.
The Protection Plus style has smaller gaps between the struts which offers better protection from the dogs teeth, and a better barrier to stop them scavenging whilst wearing it, and is made from a strong but flexible nylon.
The muzzle will also fit the guard (see photo) available as a seperate item, for that added protection and barrier.
A keeper strap can be added to make the muzzle more secure, the keeper strap is worn as a collar with the muzzle strap feeding through a loop. ensuring the muzzle is held more securely in place, they can be found here
Designed for sighthounds we have found they fit many types of dogs, the instructions below will help in deciding what size you need, however if you need any help then click here for help.
Length:Measure the length of your dogs head in a straight line from behind their ear, to the tip of the nose. The muzzles are available 20 and 23cm long and also come with an adjustable leather strap.
For dogs that measure 18-21cm you need the 20cm muzzle, for dogs that measure 22cm and longer you need the 23cm muzzle.
Depth:This is important to make sure your dog can pant freely.The circumference of the muzzle size is measured at the end of the basket where the dogs nose will be and measures 35cm.
Hold a loop of tape at 35 cm over the end of the dogs nose to see if this will give them enough room to pant.
The measurements below are the measurements of the actual muzzles, and not the size of dog they will fit. To ensure a good fit you need a good panting depth, if you are unsure at all please contact us.
Size 6- length 23cm / circumference 35cm / basket length 9cm
Size 5- length 20cm / circumference 35cm / basket length 9cm
The straps will fit a neck of up to approx 15", if this is not long enough then an extension strap may be needed. https://www.themuzzleshop.com/product-page/extension-strap
Please note that dogs with a high prey drive or a history of reactivity/aggression towards other dogs may still be able to inflict injuries whilst wearing muzzles if they are off lead and without your close control.
