Hey guys!  

One of our dogs has started to have problems with aggression and lunging so I decided to start muzzle training her.  Well we went out shopping today and I managed to find a muzzle on clearance (it was over half off!) but I'm having a tough time seeing if the fit is right.  I think it might be a little too big, so do any of you have any resources on muzzle fit?  Or pictures of what a well fitting muzzle should look like?  

The one I just got is a size 2 Baskerville ultra muzzle and she's a small/medium sized mutt

I have never used them on my personal pets, but I have had to use them when I volunteered at an animal shelter. I know nothing about fits, as they always told me which to grab. But I will bump this for you! Thank you for being a responsible owner and keeping your pet and others safe by using a muzzle.

This might help:


Muzzles might look a little big, but the dog needs room to open their mouth to pant. As long as the dog can't get it off or get around it, it's fine. You can also reshape Baskerville muzzles a bit to get a slightly more customized fit. I like them specicially because they have the strap that goes between the eyes to provide more security. I work in animal rescue so I have quite a bit of experience with muzzles. Also make sure you condition your dog properly so that they are comfortable with the muzzle (there are tons of videos on youtube if you need help). Good for you for keeping your dog and others safe!
