dog muzzle that allows drinking1) Panting. It is clear, that a dog "sweats with its tongue", and long being muzzled in heat or while intense work load can cause a heatstroke. Muzzle in which a dog pushes its chin against a muzzle while opening is uncomfortable. Especially it touches upon metal constructions of wire dog muzzles that may cause rubbing on a chin. All our dog muzzles allow dogs panting except of the muzzle for dogs to stop barking.

2) Padding. All our dog muzzles are padded in the upper nose area inside to prevent rubbing. A dog muzzle should be picked up the way to be comfortable for a dog, without rubbing its eyes and pushing on a tip of its nose.

2) Strapping. Dog muzzle strapping is very important also. In the most cases they use a strap behind the dog ears, that is fastened by a buckle, a quick release or a plastic clasp.

the best dog muzzle basketIf a dog is not supposed to be left muzzled for a long term without care and it has no habit to rub it off, if a dog muzzle is not intended for growing up of dog's anger - this strap is enough. Such dog muzzle is easy to take off over dog's head. If a firm dog muzzle fastening is obligatory, a construction with additional belt on the forehead is needed. It is very important to pick up a good fit dog muzzle for dog head's size and shape. For the majority of dogs it is possible to choose a muzzle construction that a dog will never be able to take it off without help.

3) Dog muzzle material.

Basket muzzles are made of various materials (leather dog muzzle, wire dog muzzle, plastic muzzle for dogs).

light leather dog muzzle paddedPlastic dog muzzles are suitable for not aggressive dogs. Plastic dog muzzles are light weight, but they can crack in frost and at by strong strokes. It may be used for competitions, where it is obligatory for dogs to be muzzle and the most important is lightness and easy use of its design.

4) Wire dog muzzles are better for use in above-zero temperature outside. A dog may "stick" to a metal by a lip or a tongue in frost. There are metal wire dog muzzles with leather padding, but it does not exclude contact with metal. Wire dog muzzles may have double wire in front, but its intention is not determined yet. Probably double wire dog muzzle is used for more frightening or to prevent dog to pick up different trash outside at a walk. It is better if a front wire is with vertical rods (at the attempt to bite a dog will not crack its tooth on traverse rods) . It is reasonable sometimes to cover front rods of wire dog muzzle with leather.

5) "Closed" leather dog muzzles as opposed to leather basket dog muzzles keep form better and it is more difficult for a close muzzled aggressive dog to bite.

Closed Leather Dog Muzzle for K9 DogsThe defect is that it is undesirable to keep a dog muzzled this way for a long time in heat or long term work loads. In the intention to develop a dog's anger and working out a good grip many dog trainers practice start a muzzled dog for detention. In this order they need a firmly fastened closed dog muzzle of thick leather: it is better if leather is double-layer, unbending, especially in the front.

The main demand to a dog muzzle except of its reliability is comfort for a dog to make strokes by dog muzzle not painful.

If a dog muzzle is easy to take off than for prevention its circumstantial loss it is reasonable to fasten a dog muzzle together with a collar for a case (some muzzle constructions forsee this possibility).
