DT Freedom - Basket Muzzle
DT Freedom | Basket Muzzle

Alternative Views:

DT Freedom is our most spacious wire basket muzzle, allowing dogs to be able to open their mouths to pant and drink water. Like all Dean & Tyler muzzles, our DT Freedom is padded with natural, heavy felt along the snout area.

This muzzle is designed to stay secured with only one head strap, so long as it is a proper fit. If the muzzle is able to be removed, this is indicative of either the strap needing adjustment and / or the basket being too large.

Wire basket muzzles are intended to be used under supervision and in a controlled environment, as any dog in a wire muzzle will effectively be able to exert some force behind it when stimulated. While our Production Team takes care to ensure any small points or spikes that might be leftover from the construction process are removed, there may likely still be rough points on the outside of the basket, where the metal wire is fused together due to the nature of the material ends in themselves. If a person comes into close proximity with a pup, this can possibly lead to abrasions or contusions in instances where a person is at the receiving end of the wire basket muzzle on an excitable dog. In instances where the dog may be around glass doors or windows, the glass might possibly be scratched or in some cases broken upon impact. Similarly, a dog wearing a wire basket muzzle might scratch other materials upon contact (cabinets, doors, walls, furniture, etc.). If circumstances require that a softer muzzle be used in order to minimize the potential of harm from physical contact, we would recommend a Leather Basket Muzzle as these offer much of the same security with a softer, but still durable material. Alternatively, we also offer a rubber-coated wire basket muzzle in the DT Freedom design, our DT Freedom Winter. While the wire basket is coated with rubber to provide a softer material for contact, we still want to caution that the rigidity of the wire basket will allow for potential damage if the basket were to make contact with enough force in the way of bruising (for human contact) or breakage of glass from impact.

Stated breed classifications are generalizations for reference and NOT the rule. To ensure a properly fitted, DT Freedom muzzle please see our How to Measure diagram below and cross-reference measurements with the sizing chart (also below). For DT Freedom sizing assistance, you will need Snout Circumference, Length, Height & Width measurements.

For sizing help, please send your dog's measurements, photos of your dog (snout and full body), best estimate of your dog's age, weight, sex, and breed to [email protected].
these muzzles are intended to allow your dog to pant freely, NOT fully, as a free pant is sufficient for comfort and safety at both rest and play. Dean & Tyler has seen a trend of customers taking measurements with a ball or toy in their dog’s mouth in order to mimic a full pant and size accordingly. Sizing recommendations given based on these measurements will likely be much too large and may compromise the security of the muzzle by resulting in a fit which might warrant additional straps in order to prevent removal. Our muzzles are designed to remain securely in place, without the need for additional straps or attachment of the included strap(s) to your dog's collar, when sized correctly and properly adjusted. For this reason, we strongly advise against measuring your dog with any object in their mouth as it will result in inaccurate figures and quite possibly a hazardous size recommendation. Dean & Tyler DOES NOT ADVOCATE attempting to size for a full pant, nor will we be able to assist in doing so. Dean & Tyler cannot be held liable for any harm, injury or damage which may result from improper usage of our products. PLEASE DO NOT leave your dog unattended while wearing any muzzle.

5 of 5 Great quality August 27, 2023
Reviewer: Anonymous from United States  
However we bought a size that we thought would fit our malinois because the malinois size wasn't available. Unfortunately it didn't fit. But the quality is great. And we got our refund without issues. We returned it unused.

5 of 5 Love it June 27, 2022
Reviewer: Brooke Peterson from United States  
I got this for my reactive dog. We use it anytime we leave the house. I'm able to feed treats. He can eat and drink in it as well. He has plenty of room to pant, which is super important with a bracycephalic dog breed. He is comfortable enough in it to wear it for extended periods of time when necessary. He cannot bite in it, which is huge for my safe of mind. He is super people friendly, but dog aggressive. In combination with training it has given him a new leash on life. Beware muzzle punches though. Metal straight to the thigh or face is going to hurt no matter what.

5 of 5 best muzzle for safety and fit. June 18, 2020
Reviewer: Ryan from United States  
It works, my dog can pant and drink water. The company staff is helpful in getting the right size, but know that you may need to get the right fit and plan on multiple sizes to try out before you get the right fit.
