FAQ

How do I get my dog used to wearing a muzzle?

Muzzles are often not introduced until the dog is a ready stressed or having a fearful reaction. When you introduce a muzzle in this stressful encounter, the dog may associate the muzzle with the unpleasant experiences.

Teaching your dog to be comfortable with a muzzle before a stressful experience can be very beneficial. By associating the muzzle with pleasant things like treats and play, you can positively impact a potentially stressful encounter. Your dog will also already be comfortable with the sensation of a muzzle, so this new experience won't add unnecessary anxiety to the situation.

Getting Your Dog Used to the Muzzle

Keep training sessions short. During the training session, you'll give your dog lots of treats and praise while he is wearing the muzzle. When the muzzle is off, take away the treats and praise. You'll build the association that the muzzle means tasty, fun rewards!

  1. When you introduce your dog to the muzzle, have lots of tasty treats available. You'll teach your dog the muzzle means yummy food is coming!
  2. Show your dog the muzzle. Let your dog interact with the muzzle by looking at it or touching it. Reward him with a treat and praise. Don't rush him; let the dog choose to approach the muzzle.
  3. Open the muzzle so your dog can put his nose through the nose portion. Invite your dog to put his nose through the muzzle by holding a treat on the other side. Make sure your dog is doing this at his own pace. Forcing the muzzle on his nose will likely make him fearful or uncomfortable.
  4. When your dog is excited to put his nose through the muzzle and get the treat, clip the neck strap closed. Continue rewarding your dog with treats and praise as he wears the muzzle. Keep the muzzle on for a few seconds.
  5. Remove the muzzle and take away the treats. Then put the muzzle back on and give lots of treats and praise again. Do this several times. As your dog feels more comfortable, slowly increase how long you keep the muzzle on.
  6. Practice this during short training sessions over several days. The more positive experiences your dog has with the muzzle the better! Add playtime while he's wearing the muzzle. This means your dog will be less stressed when he needs to be muzzled.

How do I fit the muzzle on my dog?

  • To fit the nose portion of the muzzle, begin with the muzzle fully open.
  • Place the mesh pane under your dog's snout.
  • Wrap the sides around and across the top of the dog's snout.
  • Secure the fuzzy fastener strap so the muzzle is snug enough that the dog cannot open his mouth entirely to bite. Make sure it's loose enough so the dog can still open his mouth a little to pant.
  • Wrap the neck strap behind the dog's head and clip the buckle.
  • Adjust the strap length so you can fit only one finger underneath the neck strap.
  • Your dog should not be able to remove the muzzle from his nose if the neck strap is clipped and properly adjusted.
  • Supervise your dog when he's wearing the muzzle. Don't leave the muzzle on for longer than 45 minutes during normal weather or 30 minutes during hot weather.

    It’s not an X-large. So small.

    By on

    I have a 4 year old 105lbs GSD. The quality of the muzzle is great. I purchased an extra large, which is the largest that it comes in. This is now my second mussel I have purchased from Chewy that has been to small. If you have a large breed dog there is a good chance this muzzle won’t fit. I’m going to the vet to get him fitted for a muzzle. Probably works well with small breeds, but not large breed friendly.

    Doesn’t fit well

    By on

    Even though the muzzle is adjustable, it’s still to big for my pup! He’s able to loosen off he mouth with a few swipes of his paw

    Way too small for a large.

    By on

    Your chart says a large is 14 inches but this large was only 8 3/4-10 3/4. Way too small for my komondor puppy at 8 months old.

    my dog tore it off in seconds

    By on

    Definitely not for my 6 month old red heeler. I bought this to put on him when I clip his nails, he can open his mouth and pulled it off bc the end is open. Cheaply made in my opinion and I can only see this working maybe for a small breed dog.

    Nice but not for my dog

    By on

    I purchased this muzzle because the one I use all the time for my 90lb lab/Doberman mix was out of stock. I have purchased several of the Coastal Pet #7 mesh muzzle. The Petsafe muzzle is made of really nice sturdy material, it is adjustable around the snout and head. My Houdini was able to get out of it several times.

    NOT for Large breed dogs!!!

    By on

    Great muzzle but NOT for larger breeds...grossly miss-labeled!!! This XL muzzle fit my 55 lb. Cur just fine... (The muzzle I purchased for my Cur is being donated to the local rescue as it would fit a Cocker Spaniel) For reference, I originally purchased this for my Dogo Argentine: his snout, at the base of the eyes, is 16 inches circumference...he IS an XL breed... Take your time and do the measurements BEFORE wasting your hard earned $$

    Great Muzzle

    By on

    I have an Australian Shepherd that doesn't like the vet's blood draws for heartworm test annually. She needs a muzzle to protect the vet and this fits the bill.
