 GENERAL FIT/SIZING INFORMATION: (Muzzles are non-refundable)

  1. Nose & Snout Clearance – The muzzle should rest approximately ½” to 1” under the eyes on the snout. The end of the nose clearance should be greater than ½” between the nose and muzzle. The nose muzzle clearance can be as much as 1.5” longer, in certain sizing situations. The sides between the muzzle and snout should average ½” to 1” on each side of the mouth. The under the mouth clearance will be greater in size due to the shape of the muzzle. The under mouth muzzle clearance provides for panting while exercising and drinking liquids.
  2. Circumference (mouth/snout) – This is the measurement around the snout (Outside Diameter) below the eyes where the muzzle will rest. Compare this measurement with each specific muzzle selection.
  3. Headstall Strap (loop) – Run a “fabric tape measure” starting at one eye and follow around the ears to the other eye.  Compare this measurement with the “Headstall loop” specific selection.
  4. Correct Fit – Muzzles are adjusted for final fit with the “buckle” or “quick-snap” attachment. Be certain the muzzle does not touch either the eyes or nose when fitted. The muzzle can be attached or removed by simply pulling the headstall loop on or off around the ears. If the dog tends to remove the muzzle by scraping against objects, or with paws; it may require a tighter fit. If the dog persists in removing the muzzle; a “security strap” can be ordered for attaching the muzzle to the collar.
