115L Tough Basket Running Muzzle
115 lightweight plastic running muzzle, an alternative style to the 107 and 110 comparable to the panting depth of the size 3 in the 110 and 107 style.
This is a tougher version of the standard 115L basket muzzle made from a harder nylon material, and have an added noseband for comfort. These are sturdier than the 110 and the 107 muzzles, and has added strength as there are no rivets which are a weak point on the 110 and 107.
The basket on this style is also slightly shorter than the 110 and 107, measuring approx 8cm, which may make it fit some non-sighthounds better.
They weigh approx 60g or 2ozs with a leather nose band for added comfort, so are still lightweight!
A keeper strap or muzzle stop can be used to help keep the muzzles in place and prevent the dog losing them. A minority of dogs may benefit from either the keeper strap or muzzle stop but this is not the norm, we find if the dog is in a well fitted muzzle that allows them to pant then very few will try and remove them, however some dogs may lose a muzzle in undergrowth on walks. .
Designed for sighthounds we have found they fit many types of dogs, and below are details of how to measure your dog to get the correct size, however if you need any help in how to measure or assess what size is needed then click here for help.
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 in the following lengths 200, 225 and 250mm and come with an adjustable leather strap.
This is important to make sure your dog can pant freely.
The circumference of these muzzles is 30cm which compares with a size 3 in the running muzzles (110 & 107).
Hold a loop of tape at 30cm over the end of the dog's nose to see if they will have enough room to pant.
The straps will fit a neck of up to approx 15", if this is not long enough then an extension strap may be needed see here.
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 especially if they are off lead and not under your close control.
