Wire Basket Dog Muzzle Information

The muzzles circumference must be larger than your dogs nose measurement.

to open his mouth to pant & drink water.
How does my dog drink water with a basket dog muzzle on??
For most basket dog muzzles, the dog should be able to put his snout in a water bowl and
lap the water up from inside the basket muzzle.
Drinking water is something that your dog will have to figure out on his own.
If you get the dog muzzle too long, it will get in the dogs eyes.
If you get the dog muzzle too short, the dogs nose will be pressed up against the end of the basket.
The length of the dog muzzle can vary about 1/4" either way.
