Rated 5 out of 5 by Gratitude Gentle, effective
We've been working with our one year-old to stop biting our old dog when he wanted to play - tried every tool available, and nothing would make the lesson stick, so got this muzzle. Treat if both dogs out in the yard and no biting, immediate muzzle if he bit. It took about five days. No more biting. We take the muzzle out with us in the yard and show him both the muzzle and the treat, give the No Bite command. Peace reigns.
Did the same to correct barking at neighbors as if national security was at risk, not much problem at this point -- still working on reactions to folks who come up to the door, but much better. (Have had muzzle for 10 days now.)
Dog can pant and drink water. Chewy's measurements were not accurate, we learned when we called the company. Snout measurement provided indicates tip of snout (see how it fits on the Size 1 photo). There is a second measurement for distance from end of muzzle to end of clips (it can only be made so small.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by bmergirl8093 Way too small!!
I gave this product two stars because of the sizing only. I have a small Yorkie and followed the sizing chart provided. Size "0" as recommended is way too small for my little guy. It may fit a Chi Chi or a tiny, teacup Yorkie. I've been involved with rescue for many years and think I have only had one foster Yorkie where this size may have worked.
I do recommend the product if you can manage to get the correct size. It seems to be very well made and easy to use.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Ceci305 Good product. Size chart is way off.
Well, the size chart I found on line was way off. The one mentioned here isn't helpful at all either. Good thing another reviewer's comment helped me with my choice. So hopefully I'm able to help someone else out as well. My dog weighs 45 lbs and her snout (midway from corner of eyes to beginning of nose) is 10" and size 3 fit her perfectly. It's really easy to put on, in spite of her being a very nervous dog. Speaking of which, and the reason I didn't give this 5 stars, is because she pretty much FREAKED OUT after I put it on her. I wasn't expecting this. From all the reviews I read, dogs seemed pretty ok with it. Well mine incessantly tried taking it off with her paws. I mean, non-stop. I had to caress her and calm her down which took a while. I tried again later in the day and again, the same reaction. This time I tried comforting her again and left it on until she calmed down. She eventually did. I haven't tried again since then, due to her reaction. But I plan to, and really hope she becomes accustomed to it. Still, this seems like it does the job and fits well.

I have not used this as yet...got it only to put on our Lab in order to clean his ears out, which seems to hurt him and he starts growling.

Rated 1 out of 5 by Sblanchard Horrible sizing
I got the size one for my Westie and it definitely was WAY too big. Terrible sizing charts and they didn't include my receipt either. Will be returned immediately.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Rachel Great fit, east to use
I got this after trying a traditional basket muzzle. The basket muzzle (size 1) was too big and seemed to be going too close to my poor pup's eyes, and had too much space after her nose.
This was very easy to fit and get on. She can take treats, eat, and pant.
My only concern is there is a lot of extra strap hanging down, no where to contain the loose piece that you adjust to the dog's head.
Got size 1 for my Llasa apso/terrier, 13 pound mutt. 17 inch chest girth. She has a relatively short snout.

by sparky it's a Quick Fit, easy on and easy off
I have a 15 pound chihuahua mix. He is a sneaky biter, and I got him from a rescue. He was in 4 foster homes and was returned 4 times for biting. I was the 5th foster home, and we are keeping him. He has a metal cage, and a soft cage, and now a muzzle to protect our visitors from him. Once you get this adjusted, and you find the spot where he cannot get out of it, it is easy on and easy off.
