Dean & Tylerís classic wire basket muzzle is available in thirty sizes to fit practically every breed, including our smaller friends.*Please note, sizes #0, #1 & #J1 are without the eye-line strap. DT Muzzle is acceptable for frequent use as it allows the dog to open their mouths.

A proper-fitting muzzle is extremely important for your dogís safety, which is why DT Muzzle has four adjustable straps and the nose area is comfortably padded with natural, heavy felt. The basketís metal is engineered to maintain its integrity for many years and itís designed for maximum ventilation.

We also carry a leather basket muzzle as well as a more spacious wire basket dog muzzle; both are better suited for long-term wear as their boxier shape allows pups to pant freely and drink water.

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.

Please see our diagram below and cross-reference those measurements to the sizing chart (also below). For the DT Basket Dog Muzzle, you will need Snout Length, Circumference, 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 support@deantylerproducts.com.
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 dogís 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.

5 of 5 THE RIGHT FIT July 13, 2018
Reviewer: alison Hunt from Victoria, BC Canada  
Thank-you to Lauren. The customer service experience she gave me was 10/10 in my standards. We corresponded via email and telephone to brainstorm about what size of muzzle would best fit our young dogs and if we were not satisfied she woukd work with us to figure out the best solution given the challenge of not being at your store in person. Thank-you

5 of 5 Amazing! July 11, 2018
Reviewer: Melissa LaRow from Seward, AK United States  
I have a 100lb black German Shepherd that is the sweetest boy at home and in my daycare.  However, if anyone walks by with a dog, he doesn't listen and runs right for them to attack, so I enrolled him In a training class with guarantee to be off leash by the end.

First class was AWFUL! 20 other dogs and he wanted to lunge and attack every dog. My arms were killing me trying to hold him back! The trainer came to me after and suggested a muzzle for everyone's protection.

We are now on week 3 of the class...2nd week with the Dean & Tyler muzzle...and he doesn't even try to lunge, growl or attack! I can weave in and out of the other dogs with him healing at my side...he will sit and stay and let other dogs walk up to him...and he's not stressed or uncomfortable! I'm comfortable and not afraid of him attacking, the other dogs aren't on edge, or their handlers. It's made the biggest improvement and so glad I tried this I stead of dropping out of the class!

Reviewer: Emmanouela Athanassiades from NY, NY United States  
A good and comfortable fit, sits well.
Delivery was quick upon request.
Would love it if the basket could weigh less while retaining strength, even if this entails a more expensive construction/sale price.
