How to size a muzzle

Loading the video...
Description

This Jafco conditioning muzzles is perfect for teaching your dog to wear a muzzle. A large hole at the front of the muzzle allows treats to be passed to the dog when wearing the muzzle.

In the first steps of conditioning we recommend adding tape over the front hole so the trainer can drop food in the muzzle and encourage the dog to stick its nose in the muzzle to get the food. In later stages of training the tape comes off and food is passed through the hole for the dog to get it.

The JAFCO Muzzles are an excellent plastic basket muzzle that offers a great deal of security. They are easy to put on and to take off. If you are looking for a good utility muzzle that will last for years and years, this is a good choice.

Jafco muzzles are made with polyethylene plastic with 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.
  • The Jafco Conditioning muzzles have a large hole in the front so that the trainer can deliver treats. Positive reinforcement will help dogs adjust to wearing muzzles.
  • Allows dogs to use modes of transportation when properly muzzled, which some transportation companies require

Fitting a Muzzle for your dog

When wearing a muzzle the vinyl nose piece should ride 1/2 inch below a line drawn between the lowest points on both eyes. The front of the muzzle should extend 1/2 inch past the end of the dogs nose.

When muzzles are too long the dog can push its nose into the front of the muzzle which results in the entire muzzle being moved back up on the the dog face and coving its eyes.

When testing the fit of the muzzle:

  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 around. The muzzle should be 100% secure and fit comfortably and allow the dog to pant and bark.

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.

Sizing Tips & Chart

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

  1. The muzzle's circumference must be larger around than your dog's "actual nose circumference." On large breed dogs we recommend between two and three inches larger than your dog's actual measurement.
  2. When a muzzle is the exact same size (circumference) as the dog's nose, the dog will have trouble opening its mouth to pant or drink.
  3. When we condition a dog to wear a muzzle we drop food rewards in the muzzle and encourage the dog to stick its nose in the muzzle and take the food out. We use marker training to teach a dog to be comfortable wearing the muzzle (see the video we have on the subject).
  4. One thing that helps in this process is to tape over the hole during this training so the food reward stays in the muzzle. Then when we reach the stage of training where we stop dropping food in we move on to passing food through the opening in the front of the muzzle, at that point the tape comes off. We have a detailed video on how to condition a dog to wearing a muzzle.

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.

This is a brilliant muzzle and I've recommended it to trainers here in Australia. It took only a few short and relaxed sessions for my dog to wear it happily. Although well trained, he is reactive in some situations, and the muzzle allows him a lot more freedom to go out with us. It will also be useful for vet visits. We got the clear version - it's so quick and easy to put on and off, so comfortable for the dog and I wouldn't use any other type of muzzle.

Brilliant design (I bought the two strap version), excellent quality, so simple and quick to fit. With the treat hole, it took less than hour for my large GSD boy to wear it happily. Plenty of ventilation, comfortable padding across his nose and he can pant, drink, take treats, anything other than bite. I now can let him run free on the beach or take him to the vet without having to worry about public liability. Would recommend to any responsible dog owner.

I just wanted to thank you for the outstanding service and the videos expelling on how to fit the correct size was 100%. I bought a size 4 but I sized it wrong because I used a shoe lass.But I'm keeping the the 4 because the other video on baiting your dog works perfect and that's why I'm keeping it. Keep in mind, if you buy the wrong size your dog will be blinded. And before you use the muzzle, make sure you watch how to bait your dog the correct way.

I recommend buying the "Meat Barn Meet Rolls." I bought 6 of them and I cut them up just like the video explained. I've been a Leerburg customer about 2 years and will only buy from the best.


Thank You

Rich
