DT Freedom Winter - Basket Muzzle
DT Freedom Winter | Basket Muzzle

DT Freedom Winter Edition is a rubber-coated version of our most spacious wire-basket muzzle, allowing dogs to open their mouths to pant and drink water.
The wire basket is coated with rubber to prevent your dog's snout from freezing to the muzzle in winter.

Like all Dean & Tyler muzzles, our DT Freedom Winter is padded with natural, heavy felt along the snout area.
This muzzle is designed to stay secured with only one head strap.

Please note, due to DT Freedom Winter muzzles being in higher demand, we are making additional efforts to try to maintain stock of these models instead of having them made when ordered. With many Winter models being stored, it is possible your muzzle may arrive with small nicks in the outer portion of rubber coating. We would like to assure you our muzzles undergo a detailed quality inspection prior to shipment and these instances are minor cosmetic details which will not interfere with the muzzle's performance. The rubber coating is intended to prevent freezing in colder climates and any potential for minor wear incurred via storage or transit exists primarily on the outside of the basket and will not prevent the muzzle from working as intended.

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 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. 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.

Stated breed classifications are generalizations for reference and NOT the rule. To ensure a properly fitted, full face wire dog muzzle please see our diagram below and cross-reference those measurements to the sizing chart (also below).
For the DT Freedom, 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 Muzzle happy customer! February 15, 2023
Reviewer: Laura Diblasi from MD United States  
This muzzle was a lifesaver.  Our Saint Bernard, who is anything but a gentle giant, gets anxious at the vets. They put a muzzle on him that was way too constricting and it made him even more anxious.  It was very stressful for us to take him anywhere.  We put this new muzzle on him and he was very happy.  He wore it to have his nails done and he was a perfect gentleman. He never tried to take off the muzzle and he was very comfortable. Dean and Tyler Dog Collars was amazing and worked with us to ensure that we had the perfect fit. We highly recommend them.

5 of 5 Great muzzle, great customer service! August 26, 2021
Reviewer: Briana Pichalski from Maryland, United States  
I originally ordered my dog the Freedom wire basket muzzle. When I didn't get a shipping confirmation #, I sent an email inquiring. It was quickly answered by Lauren S. who said that the size I ordered was out of stock, but was available in the upgraded winterized version. I opted to upgrade and it shipped the next day! I'm so happy with the winterized version, as it is what I wanted originally but didn't think it was in stock. Happy that my dog will have a high quality, properly fitted muzzle to work safely on reactivity!

5 of 5 LOVE the pant room!! Needed it quick. June 13, 2021
Reviewer: Anonymous from United States  
So happy I was able to get this muzzle! My 105lb German Shepherd is going to be doing a 3 week board/train for help with reactivity / behavioral issues he developed after a combination of hitting puberty & a year of hardly any socialization (thanks COVID) - he will be required to be comfortable using a muzzle during his initial assessment & will be wearing it frequently.

With the frequency he’ll be wearing it, summer temps rising, and inevitable play/exercise, I really needed something bite proof that also allowed him to fully pant; for his comfort, the trainer’s safety, and my own piece of mind. I only had about a month to muzzle condition & needed it quick.

Received this in about a week and couldn’t be happier! Due to my GSD’s long / narrower snout, It was a bit wide on him initially & I did have to “squish” it a bit so it was touching his cheek bones & not flopping all over the place. After that, it’s a perfect fit and he can pant comfortably.

I feel SO much better about him attending doggy school now, thank you!!

5 of 5 Brilliant muzzle! February 22, 2018
Reviewer: MaryAnn Smith from ACTON, MA United States  
This muzzle has the most amazing design......easy to get on and off, but impossible for my dog to dislodge or remove.  It's really comfortable for her -- she can pant and even bark in it.  The coating helps it to be comfortable in any weather.  I let my dog choose her muzzle for walks, and she always chooses this one!  Thanks, DT, for providing a muzzle in so many sizes that every dog can have a comfortable muzzle.
