This is an excellent muzzle for people who have dominant dogs. Dominant and aggressive dogs need a muzzle to protect the handler during obedience training. This muzzle allows excellent airflow and has enough room for the dog to drink with the muzzle on. They are made with heavy-duty chrome.

Additional Resources

For help in learning how to size your dog for a wire basket muzzle, we have an instructional video here and a written article here that go into greater detail.

If you are still unsure of the size to choose, measure your dog then call our office at (715) 235-6502 and we will do our best to help you decide the best style and size of muzzle for your dog.


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.

I absolutely love my wire basket muzzle I received from leerburg! It fit my American Bully perfectly. When I had some questions about the style of the muzzle Leerburg was quick and awesome with answering my questions. I had a very good experience. Now my girl Zoee and I can practice for her drag racing titles.

By far a 5 star product and company. I ordered one of these muzzles about 9 years back. One of the best purchases I've ever made for my dog. Fit perfect to the measurements, stayed on during accidental fights, my dog knew he could drink and even figured out how to push kibble through the grate. It survived several fights until we could resolve the underlying problem and kept my dog safe for many years of anxiety after the attacks while introducing him to other dogs slowly. My old one went missing and I will definitely be ordering a new one in the short future. Love this product and love this company for making it available to me and my boy. We are so grateful!

I bought another muzzle before this one and it's night and day. Make sure you watch the video on baiting your dog so your K-9 looks at the muzzle as a positive thing. I only use this on the job or when I'm in a store. I must say the fit is perfect and just bait your dog very slow with the treats you can buy on this site and he or she will go into the muzzle to get the treat on their own without you holding it. I love it!

I was doing a lot of research on muzzles for a move, one of my dogs in the past has shown aggression towards my other dog and I thought with the stress of moving this would be a big help. I looked up multiple brands, types and talked to several people. These are the only people who seemed genuinely concerned with my dogs well being and not just out to make money. The fit is great, she can have it on for long periods comfortably and eating and drinking is very easy for her. I would recommend these to everyone who needs a good muzzle, they're sturdy, built to last and comfortable. If I ever need another you bet I'll be coming back. Thank you guys so much for the piece of mind!

We received our wire muzzle on Monday and it has taken less than 24 hours for my "sneaky" biter, Rey, to acclimate to it. I did just what Cindy did in the video with Rush. It makes me so happy that I will be able to go more places with him and have others enjoy his talents. In the past, I just never knew when or who he might decide to bite. He could be running an agility course a mile a minute and just decide that the gate person might need a quick bite. He never broke skin, or drew blood, but I had to quit bringing him out in public. He hates the cloth muzzle and will fight it, but this wire muzzle with plenty of room to breathe and lick and even enjoy a treat has just been a blessing. Thanks for taking the time to email me and explain about the measurements, etc. and the pros and cons of each muzzle.

Leerburg has once again came through for me with another quality product. I purchased this muzzle for socializing my GSD that is territorial. Her attitude has changed greatly now that we have a muzzle that I feel she can breathe well with and move on to calmly work her on her socialization skills. The muzzle is a perfect fit. These wire muzzles were impossible to find locally but I again was able to turn to Leerburg to solve my problem. I'm looking for a couple more training aids I've found that our popular pet store doesn't seem to carry, but luckily Leerburg once again has what I need. Thank You Leerburg!

I received my size FF wire basket muzzle today, and I'm thrilled! It's a perfect fit for my female pit bull. Following your instructional video, I had her accepting the muzzle inside of five minutes. I took her for a walk just before she was due to eat dinner, so she was good and hungry. We were out of liver treats, so I diced some Genoa salami and used that to mark. Easy peasy! I would love to submit a picture of Sugar wearing her new accessory, but I'm not sure how to upload one. Please let me know...

I received the wire muzzle that I purchased for my German Shepherd and it is awesome. The quality is superb and I feel much better with him wearing it than the local store bought mesh muzzle I had been using on him. I can see that he is breathing comfortable and that makes me feel good as well because he always pretended that he couldn't breathe with the mesh one but now I know he is safe and not worry. He is a very nervous dog and I want to make sure that he doesn't get too nervous and nip someone. He hates to go to the vet for anything and I always put a muzzle on him when we go, especially when getting his nails trimmed.

I found a trainer who is helping me to work with him so I can easily board him and we use a muzzle for the training as well or anytime he is around strangers.

Thanks for such a safe and comfortable item for my dog. I would appreciate any tips for socializing him.

I have used your wire basket muzzle on a 3 year old foster rottweiler, Spencer, that has extreme fear-based aggression to people. Your staff helped me pick the correct size, and were very pleasant. It took only a couple uses before Spencer completely accepted the muzzle. Now, when let out of the crate, he will raise his front feet off the floor to put his nose into the muzzle! He knows he will only be allowed to be loose in the house with the muzzle on, and seems to look forward to it! It is excellent quality, worth twice the price. Actually priceless, considering the safety of everyone here. Thank you for such a quality product!

Hello Ed and Cindy,
I use one of these muzzles for my Bouviers French Ringsport muzzle exercises. It is still in remarkably good shape after 7 years; I want to thank you for continuing to carry them. I have a client who is looking for a muzzle and this is where I have directed him.

I regret that I cannot rate this a 4.75 stars... the only reason I deducted a star is because I feel this muzzle should have more holes in the throat latch. My 53 # pitbull has a rather delicate & feminine head, and I had to punch more holes in my size A muzzle's throat latch so that it would fit her. Otherwise this is a 5 star European muzzle. This muzzle will last you a lifetime if you do your part and take care of it. I initially bought the FF muzzle, but really needed a size A for "pant-ability" in the TX heat. The staff at LB was remarkable as always and my exchange was effortless. Kudos to LB once again, you guys & gals are awesome!
