How to size a muzzle

Description

The JAFCO Muzzles are a tried and true plastic basket muzzle that offers a great deal of security. Many K9 departments around the world use this muzzle for training protection dogs in muzzle work. They are easy to put on and easy to take off, even easier than most muzzles. If you are looking for a good utility muzzle that will last for years and years, this is your best choice.

All are made with polyethylene plastic with two reinforced rubber straps. The clear plastic muzzle is softer and more flexible than the white or black style plastic muzzles. These muzzles are not designed for muzzle fighting training.

Design & Uses

  • Can be worn for extended periods without inhibiting the dog’s breathing, barking, and panting
  • Dogs can drink with the muzzle on, using a water bowl or bucket. It is best to "teach" your dog that it is ok to put the muzzle into the water before leaving the dog unattended for any period of time.
  • Prevents wound licking, and eating rocks, garbage, poison, etc.
  • Prevents injuries from dog fights
  • Allows dogs to use some modes of transportation when properly muzzled, which some transportation companies require

Fitting the Dog

The vinyl nose piece should be just below the dog’s stop with the end of the muzzle touching the dog’s nose. When on the dog:

  1. pull the muzzle out and down
  2. pull the muzzle out and up

If at some point the muzzle comes off, it’s either too loose or too big. The muzzle should fit comfortably and allow the dog to pant and bark.

Sizing Tips & Chart

There are a few things you need to know about sizing a muzzle for your dog:

  1. The muzzle cannot be longer than your dog’s actual "nose length". If the muzzle is longer than your dog's nose length, the muzzle will be in the dog's line of vision.
  2. The muzzle's circumference must be larger than your dog's "nose circumference." We recommend between one and three inches larger than your dog's measurement. If the muzzle is the exact same size as your dog's nose, the dog won't be able to pant. It is very important that you give your dog enough room to pant while wearing the muzzle.

Hello,

Just wanted to say a big thank-you for the excellent muzzle. I took my vet-anxious dog to the vet yesterday and while I can see we have a long way to go to desensitize him, the muzzle did a great job at keeping everyone safe and making it possible for my 90lb Rhodesian Ridgeback to get the medical attention he needed. Even the vet remarked on what a great product it was and asked where I got it.

Thanks again,
Sheelah

Great muzzle.
Bought a white JAFCO Muzzle in size 4 for my weimaraner.
Muzzle came to my door within a week.
Great for desensitizing dogs to the muzzle.
My dog has no problem at all with this muzzle. Very lightweight and breathable.
If you need a muzzle for travel, buy this muzzle. Some countries require dogs of certain breeds to be muzzled while in public.
If you need an emergency muzzle for "just in case", buy this muzzle.
All dogs should have a fitting "emergency muzzle" that allows them to pant. You never know what a dog might do when injured, or unsure of himself.

My dog is a 4 yr old chow / akita mix who has fear aggression at the vet. So, I ordered a JAFCO muzzle from your company for vet visits.

The pictures of how to measure are EXCELLENT! It was a perfect fit.

It was so much easier to take him in already muzzled. He has never exhibited any aggression towards me...but, he is awful at the vet. The muzzle they use at the vet does not allow him to open his mouth at all.

At least with the JAFCO he can still pant and I don't have the stress (for him and me) of trying to muzzle him when we are there and he's afraid. I am very satisfied with my purchase!

I have to say I was skeptical about a muzzle made of plastic and equally skeptical I'd find one that would fit my crazy Basinji mix's weird nose. I purchased a JAFCO muzzle, size 2 for him and it's been a breeze to get him adjusted and now I'm not worried about anyone getting hurt. It is a very nice muzzle and you may have saved my dog's life. (I am, of course, training with him too.)

I wanted to write and thank you. We recently ordered a JAFCO muzzle for our German Shepherd Kazan. In the past we would wear a typical cloth muzzle to take him to the vets and he would fight us every time we would put it on. We got the JAFCO muzzle a couple weeks ago and I followed the instructions that you showed on your DVD on how to get the dog acclimated to wearing a muzzle. I can't thank you enough. For the first time, he does not fight us to wear the muzzle. When I bring the muzzle out he'll go and sit down on the floor and allow me to put the muzzle on without any resistence. It's really amazing.

I was skeptical that this would work on him since he had worn a muzzle in the past and didn't like it but I took my time and fed him treats out of the muzzle for a week. After he was comfortable taking the treats out of the muzzle, I then put the muzzle on him and he tried to pull it off but after I told him "No" he quit and now he wears it without trying to pull it off.

Thanks again and Happy Holidays.
