Baskerville Ultra Muzzle
There are lots of situations where using a muzzle can greatly benefit any dog, and responsible owners are now proactively using this tool for visits to the groomers, public transport or to prevent wildlife scavenging. The Ultra Muzzle offers clever features to improve ease of use and your dog’s comfort, whilst strongly retaining our product promise of safety first. And for dogs that are reactive around other dogs, people or new situations – like vet visits – the Baskerville Ultra Muzzle is a great choice.
Safe and secure
The Ultra Muzzle helps remove the risk in situations like vet and groomer visits, riding on public transport and dog walks in the park. Made with durable Thermoplastic Rubber (TPR), this dog muzzle is very strong and secure, for peace of mind wherever your adventures take you.
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 Ultra Muzzle was designed to allow your dog to pant, drink and enjoy treats while being worn. It’s humane basket-style design makes it the ideal choice for daily walks or for occasional use.
Heat shape for a custom fit
Like a mouthguard, the Ultra Muzzle can be heat-shaped to fit your dog’s unique size and shape. You can find out more about how to do this in the fitting instructions.
This innovative dog muzzle is available in a variety of sizes, making it ideal for small, medium and large dogs.
Ultra Muzzle Features and Size Guide
Please use the sizing guide on this page in the Image Gallery 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.
Please refer to the information section on this page showing examples of correct and incorrect fit for the Ultra Muzzle on some typical dog breeds. 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 more tailored sizing advice.
Please see the guidance chart and how to video on this page for more information on how to re-shape your Ultra Muzzle to custom fit your dog.
As an initial overview; firstly, place the muzzle in hot tap water for 2 minutes. Take the muzzle out of the water and when it is safe to touch, use your hands to shape the muzzle basket to suit your dog. Cool in cold water to lock in the shape. and then try the muzzle on your dog to check if it is the right fit. If necessary remould the muzzle again until it is right. Please note you may need to reshape the muzzle every so often as the material will return to its original shape over time.
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 the ‘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.
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.
