Four Paws Quick Fit Muzzle
A pretty good muzzle
I got this muzzle for our black lab. He is a barker... you can hear him two blocks away from our home when he is outside, and he does not stop no matter what we do. He often gets snappy when his nails get trimmed or he gets a bath. This muzzle has helped completely with both of those issues.
It's soft and breathable. I would never put anything on a dog that would cause them undue discomfort. The material of this muzzle is very strong, but thin enough to let the air through.
He can still pant and drink. The muzzle doesn't clamp his mouth shut. He can drink with it on just fine, and his panting isn't labored.
It's easy to put on. Even when he wiggles around we can still get this on him with practically no trouble. And the strap just wraps around under the ears and clicks shut. It's adjustable, so it's easy to get the right fit.
The only bad thing about this muzzle--and this could simply be specific to my Rocky, is that the top portion of it tends to go up over his eyes. Dogs rely mostly on their sense of smell, true. But not being able to see makes Rocky very nervous. Two easy ways to solve this are to make the strap looser, so that the muzzle is able to sort of slide forward and away from your dog's eyes if this happens. The other thing you can do, if you have the patience, is fold the top in a bit and sew it. If not for this, I would've rated it five stars. Again, this is my experience, but yours may be different. I got a size 4 for Rocky as specified by the chart. It's just something I think buyers should be aware of.

My poor little boy's toenails break very short and I have to cut them, with the muzzle I can calm him down and do what needs to be done without the fear of him biting. He doesn't mean to go for me but the nail is painful, my poor little fellow. He has an auto immune disease that causes them to break very short. The pictures on the front of the package for the muzzle gave me the right fit, it was great!!!!

It works somewhat...
At first, it does prevent my puppy from barking and biting. Once she got used to it, since the muzzle is supposed to allow her to breathe and drink water, she is able to nip and bark... I would use it to distract her from biting me (she's teething), but it doesn't entirely stop the barking.

Prevents my dog from eating the walls!
My lab developed behavioral problems after about 4 years of age. She chews on the corners of the walls if we are not home. She was destroying our house. I bought this product so I could leave my dogs in the house when we were gone and with our automatic dog door, they can come and go as they need, but since I began using this product anytime I leave the house, my walls are safe and my dog can still drink water. This muzzle is soft and not uncomfortable to wear. Only negative is that she seems to be between a size 3 and size 4, so I have to make a few adjustments to the larger one to make it fit.

I have a little pug who is a little over a year old. She eats anything and everything outside (grass, dirt, sticks, etc) It was starting to cause problems with her bowel movements and we were backtracking on being house broken & crate trained at that point. (lots of accidents) The muzzle has helped tremendously and even though its not her favorite thing in the world, she can breathe comfortably, and now is in a routine of wearing it when outside. I was skeptical of how it would fit, but the size one has been perfect!!

Very easy to take off!
It took my dog all of 10 seconds to get it off. I did tighten thinking that was the problem, again, he took it off in 10 seconds.

Quick Fit Muzzle
This is better than the mesh muzzles I tried but still a little large. She is still able to bark. I will try the smaller size.
