Baskerville Classic Muzzle
The Classic Muzzle gives you peace of mind and reassurance in all situations. This traditional box style muzzle is perfect for breeds such as greyhounds and lurchers, and the additional muzzle guard will prevent food waste and wildlife scavenging on walks. The range also includes specialist sizes for broader nosed dogs.
If you’re looking to keep your dog safe and reduce the risk in situations like vet visits, rides on public transport and walks in the park, this tough but lightweight plastic muzzle is strong and secure.
Pant, drink and eat
Dogs are full of energy and panting is an important way for them to cool down and self-soothe in stressful situations. That’s why the Classic Muzzle was humanely designed to allow your dog to pant, drink and enjoy treats while being worn.
When the additional muzzle guard layer is inserted, the Classic Muzzle can be used to prevent food waste scavenging and wound licking.
The Classic Muzzle is available in a wide range of lengths and widths to suit a variety of dog breeds.
Classic Muzzle Features and Size Guide
Please use the sizing guide on this product page to determine which sizing category your dog falls into. If your dog’s nose length and circumference fall into different sizing categories, please use the nose length measurement to determine the best size.
If you are still unsure, please email us with a picture of your dog in their muzzle at: firstname.lastname@example.org and one of our fur-tastic team will be able to offer sizing advice.
It’s important to remember that for your dog having a new training aid on their head / face will feel unusual for your dog and it is perfectly normal reaction for them to try and remove it. We encourage you to help your dog acclimatise to the muzzle by using positive associations methods. This can be through using treats to encourage your dog to place their nose into the muzzle and placing the muzzle on the dog for a few seconds, then taking the muzzle off and rewarding immediately. Build up the length of time the muzzle is on slowly, so your dog has time to adjust. You can find more information on how to do this with our ‘how-to’ video on this page. If your dog is trying to take the muzzle off, try to distract them with a treat or their favourite toy to stop this behaviour. In the early days of acclimatising your dog we strongly recommend you use the collar loop and the headstrap for increased security and stability and minimise muzzle movement if your dog tries to remove it.
We would recommend the Classic Muzzle (Sizes 1-10) as this includes an additional plastic guard at the end of the muzzle to prevent eating of food waste and other items like other dogs poo! Both the Baskerville Ultra and Classic Muzzles are suitable to use on your dog for the prevention of wildlife catching and scavenging.
Due to the Baskerville basket style design, our muzzles can be worn for longer periods e.g. for daily dog walks, as the dog can pant and drink at all times with the muzzle on.
However, even with Baskerville muzzles we do not recommend leaving these on your dog for extended periods of time unless absolutely necessary e.g. your dog is aggressive even at home. We recommend, as with all our products, to fully supervise your dog while they are wearing the muzzle from both a safety and welfare perspective. In the early days of muzzle training this will also ensure your dog does not remove the muzzle and potentially chew the product.
