Leerburg Customer's Dogs in Muzzles

Muzzle Warning - If you train with or use muzzles you need to read this!


MUZZLE SIZING WARNING:

It's important that customers measure their dogs to determine what size muzzle a dog needs. Some muzzles are identified as breed specific, this is not an accurate way to determine what muzzle your dog needs.

Dogs within a specific breed can have a wide variety of head measurements. It is impossible to say that one muzzle size fits all Rottweilers or one muzzle size fits all Dobermans or one muzzle size fits all Cocker Spaniels.

The only true way to determine what muzzle fits your dog is by measuring your dog's head in the manner in which we detail below.

 

To measure your dog's nose,
follow the two steps listed below.

~STEP ONE~

Measure the dog's nose length. This should be from the tip of the nose to 1/2 inch below the eyes. This should be taken along the top of the dog's nose as shown below.

Measuring Length of Muzzle

Example: The dog in this photo has a 4-inch nose length

~STEP TWO~

Measuring the circumference

Example: The dog in this photo has a circumference of about 11 1/2-inches

** It is VERY important that you give your dog enough room to pant while wearing the muzzle. The measurements shown in the chart above are the ACTUAL measurements of the muzzle itself. You need to be sure of TWO things before you choose your muzzle size.

FIRST: The muzzle CAN NOT be LONGER than your dog’s actually “nose length”.
If the muzzle is longer than your dog's nose length, the muzzle will be in the dog's line of vision.

SECOND: The muzzle's " circumference" MUST be LARGER than your dog's "nose circumference." We recommend between 1 -3 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. Its mouth won't even be able to open.

If you are unsure of the size to choose, measure your dog then call our office and we will do our best to help you decide the best style and size of muzzle for your dog.
