The little loop up front that the dog collar can be stringed through was a great idea. However, it only took moments for our dog to pull it off by pulling it forward and over his head. If there was a way to connect the back strap to the collar as well, this might have held. Unfortunately, this muzzle design failed to fulfill its purpose.
I purchased this for use when going to the vet - my dog is extremely anxious, and while he hasn't bitten anyone, I thought it might help his doctor if a muzzle was an available option. I've been working on training using high value treats, and from what I can tell, this fits well enough for what I plan to use it for. I knocked one star off because I purchased the brown version due to the photo having a metal clasp at the top instead of the plastic connector seen on the black version. I liked the thought of being able to secure that part separately. Unfortunately, the muzzle I received did not have the metal clasp. It's obviously still useable, but something to keep in mind if you're picking the color based on the photo.
I ordered 2 small Baskerville Ultra muzzles, one of each color. They are not of the same construction. The tan one has a buckle and the top strap has a metal clasp. The black one is the same as pictured, no metal parts.
Bought sizes 2 and 3, but prefer the 3 for the length of my dog's nose. It works well, but I do wish there was a way to fasten the top side to the collar because it occasionally slips over her ears.
'Excellent quality product that keeps me from getting into trouble at the Vet's. It can be fitted to the muzzle, stylish, and it does not fall off. I ordered mock-ups to this product and it was a failed produce.
My dog was able to get this off within a minute. It is a size 5 for a medium sized German Shepard and it was the right fit, however, no matter how many times I tightened it, she was able to use her paws to slip it right off. Very disappointed.
This muzzle was recommended to me by a police officer on the canine unit. This muzzle was hard to figur out how to put on. I watched videos on youtube by Baskerville. The said to clip it or attach it to coller via a loop at the bottom of the muzzle. This had my German Shepherd pulling off the muzzle in less than 10 seconds. I tried twisitng the straps around the collar. This seemed to help a little but seemed like it too would have my dog out in seconds if he was left unattended. I never could figure out how to secure this so my dog couldn't pull it off. I even emailed Baskerville to ask how to secure this on my dog. I bought size 5 for my german shepherd. All the straps were pulled as tight as they would go and the muzzle was virutally right up to the nose and it still felt flimsy and to easy to pull off.
purchased the tan model as I wanted the buckle style baskerville as pictured. received plastic clip muzzles which are notoriously easy for dogs to remove.
I needed a muzzle for my rescue dog who is a wonderful little dog but is scared and aggressive during vet visits. I ordered the wrong size with my first order and got the size right the second order. Chewy.com was fast and efficient in the return and refund of my first order and sent my second order quickly. The muzzle fits well and seems to be a comfy muzzle.
it fits the snout well, but no matter how much I tried adjusting the straps, they were too long. she was able to get off the unit from the sides since it just wouldn't get tight enough. maybe for a pit bull with a massive head, but she's Husky/Shepheard so her head is not as thick but elongated, I still need to find something sadly this was not it.
