To choose the most accurate size muzzle and avoid additional shipping costs for exchanges, it is necessary that you measure your dog. Do not rely just on the weight or breed of your dog. Please spend 3 minutes to size your dog and to make sure that you receive good fit muzzle. You need measure tape or some sort of string which you can place next to ruler, a pen and a paper. Once you have all sizing info please go to product page and fill in personalization fields.
You need to take 6 measurements of the snout of your dog:
1. Length - distance from the tip of the nose to eye line in inches.
