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 does not fit

    By Gail on Sep 5, 2021

    I measured my dog carefully and bought the large size muzzle, but it is way too small. It looked like it was supposed to have mesh to cover her mouth, but it did not have mesh, other than under her mouth. I could not use this muzzle on my dog.

    Rough inside

    By chefrufus on Oct 14, 2021

    The bottom part of this muzzle is a soft weave. The top is a rough hard material, not good for dogs with sensitive skin issues

    Waste of money

    By Muzzle on Jun 21, 2021

    This item is not worth the money. It is too easy for the dog to remove even if you try to tighten. After a few attempts at using this product, i gave up and threw it away.

    Very adustable

    By Petsafemuzzle on Jul 23, 2021

    The muzzle fits well and is very adjustable. It is padded enough for comfort but not too hot. I like it.

    Muzzle for dogs

    By Otis on Aug 16, 2021

    I wouldn't buy it because when they have it on they can't even pant. Not good.

    It's okay...

    By Tiff on Jun 16, 2021

    Made very well. I love that it is adjustable. It does not stay tightened though & the strap just loosens up on its own. At the worst times.
