Designed for smaller dogs to prevent them from scavenging, also suitable for exercising and is a good alternative to use instead of the Vet "cones of shame" to stop dogs interfering with a wound.
Suitable for small/medium dogs and available in 3 lengths-180mm, 200mm, 220mm.
The muzzles are made of plastic, and are also available in a black rubber (which is listed as a colour choice). The rubber is lighter, and more robust as is more pliable than the plastic.
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. .
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 how to 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 180mm, 200mm, & 220mm long and also come with an adjustable leather strap.
For dogs that measure up to 19cm get the 180mm, 20-21cm you need the 200mm muzzle,& for dogs that measure 22cm and longer you need the 220mm muzzle.
This is important to make sure your dog can pant freely.

Hold a loop of tape at 27.5 cm over the end of the dogs nose to see if this will give enough panting depth.
