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.

    Muzzle to big

    By Pixie on Mar 16, 2021

    The muzzle was suppose to fit small breed dogs like Chihuahuas. Unfortunately, it would not fit my Jack Terrior/Chihuahua, it was way to big. The muzzle itself was of good quality, but it hit her eyes so I couldn’t snap it together. Chewy always saves me lots of money, so I didn’t even send it back. I’ll give it to someone that could use it.

    Swallowed my dog!

    By Dijor on Feb 26, 2021

    I initially purchased this because my fur boy is a little a-hole if my grandsons get near me. I purchased the smallest one they had, but it still covered almost his whole face. I ended up having to settle for using his pull harness to keep somewhat respectable to the grandsons. Would not recommend this product for tiny Yorkie size dogs.

    By Muzzle on Jan 15, 2021

    Good fit and adjustable. Doesn't seem to cheap. Hard for dogs to get off. This works for both of my dogs that are different sizes

    Doesn’t fit well

    By Rori on Oct 28, 2020

    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 MightyQuinn on Oct 20, 2020

    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.
