Conditioning muzzles are perfect for teaching your dog to wear a muzzle. A larger hole at the front of the muzzle allows treats to be given to the dog through the hole.

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 to condition their dogs to wearing the muzzle before they move the dog into a muzzle designed for muzzle fighting.

This muzzle is easy to put on and easy to take off. 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 or bite work in a muzzle.

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.
  • 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. After a dog has been properly trained to wear a muzzle, we recommend switching over to a regular JAFCO Muzzle.
  • 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.
