The Proguard Softie Dog Muzzle is a temporary, reliable restraint, ideal for grooming, training and treating your dog. If dogs could talk, they'd ask for the Softie, because it is comfortable and allows them to pant and breathe. The Softie is made from patented Dupont fabric which is exceptionally resistant to abrasions, punctures and tears. This is an easy care, wash and wear product. Available in five sizes to fit most breeds.
These soft muzzles are made from nylon side panels and a front fishnet plastic mesh section, which allows the dog to breathe easily while muzzled. The Softie muzzle has an adjustable back strap which is made to snap quickly behind the dog's head. The muzzle is washable and resistant to tears and punctures. Softie muzzles are created to be easily secured around dog muzzles with optimum comfort to the dog.
** It is VERY important that you give your dog enough room to pant while wearing the muzzle. The measurements shown in the chart below are the ACTUAL measurements of the muzzle itself. You need to be sure of TWO things before you choose your muzzle size.
FIRST: 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 and your dog can take it off too easy.
SECOND: The muzzle's "circumference" must be larger than your dog's nose circumference. We recommend 1 inch 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. Its mouth won't even be able to open.
What size do I need?
For correct fit, measure your dogs snout (nose) circumference (all the way around with the mouth closed) at the widest part, 1/2" below the eyes. Measure the nose length from the top and tip of the nose to 1/2" below the eyes.
For smaller dogs add approximately 1/2 inch to the dogs snout circumference.
For bigger dogs add approximately 1 inch to the dogs snout circumference.
You want the dog muzzle to be bigger than your dogs snout circumference.
If you are unsure of the size to choose, measure your dog then give us a call at 936-894-3292 and we will do our best to help you decide the best size of muzzle for your dog. You need a measuring tape or some sort of string which you can place next to ruler. You need also pen and paper to write down the measurements you took.
