The walking out, kennel or box muzzle is designed for use when dogs are travelling. The boxed in design is also useful at preventing dogs from scavenging, and for dogs that break the basket styles fir e.g by playing with toys, or knocking the muzzle through play.
Unless needed for a specific reason this style of muzzle shouldn’t be the first choice for a dog to exercise in, as the boxed in design restricts the flow of air through the muzzle and can impede the dogs ability to cool down.
The first choice for exercise should be a basket style muzzle, however if the dog is scavenging and at risk of being ill the balance will shift in favour of the 101 even for exercise as it is a lightweight muzzle, allows them to pant and has airflow through the basket top.
The muzzle fastens with one strap around the dogs head, but a keeper strap can be added which is worn as a collar and fastens the muzzle more securely in place, they can be found here.
Designed for sighthounds we have found they fit many types of dogs, and below are details of how to measure your dog to establish if the box muzzle will fit, however if you need any help 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 muzzle measures 23cm long and also come with an adjustable leather strap.
The minimum head length that will fit is 21cm.
This is important to make sure your dog can pant freely.
The circumference of the muzzle is measured at the end of the basket where the dogs nose will be and is 35cm.
Hold a loop of tape at 35 cm over the end of the dogs nose to see if this is a suitable size.
The measurements below are the measurements of the actual muzzle, 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
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
